Union Minister of Minority Affairs K Rahman Khan has expressed the need to set up centres for the study of religious books across the country.

“At a time when communalism is threatening to split the country, such centres will be a solution,” K Rahman said, while inaugurating a centre for the study of Quran, Bible, Gita.

Study centre chairman and Hindava Sevashramam president Swami Purandharanantha presided over the function.

Study centre director Rev Father Roby Kannanchira, Advocate T P M Ibrahim Khan and chairman Masjid Imam Suleiman Maulvi spoke on topics from their religious books.

Religions books were also distributed among the various leaders.

Rahman said misconceptions about religions has led to communalism and the only measure to curb the growth of communalism in a country, which has a history of religious harmony, is to set up such centres.

The Union Minister said a scheme is on the anvil to set up 1,000 such centres across the country for the study of religious books.
