ISKCON Italy’s Narada Muni Das (Fabio Pianigiani) participated at a conference held in the Italian Parliamanet celebrating the bi-centennary of Baha’u’llah.

After reading the message of greetings from ISKCON Minister of Communications Anuttama Das, in his presentation, Narada Muni Das elaborated on the importance of different faith groups’ celebrating together and sharing their goals. 

The conference was held at the prestigious Library of the Italian Pariament.

He pointed out that discrimination is a problem for many of them. In April 2017, members of the Baha'i community were the subject of persecution and arrests in Yemen but these events had little prominence in the media, they were not considered to be important. “I believe each of us has the duty to demonstrate our solidarity, and in every way possible draw attention to the grave injustices in the world, whether they are religious, cultural or otherwise.” He also stressed the importance of  solidarity for the oppresed on the part of the politicians and cultural leaders because, he said,  “they are supposed to be the facilitators of peace and bearers of light in our confused  society.”
