Acclaimed exhibition comes to city
An exhibition about religious tolerance which is touring European cities has come to Leicester.
The St Philip's Centre, in Evington, is hosting the "Religious Tolerance – Islam" in the Sultanate of Oman exhibition.
Leicester is the next stop on the tour after the exhibition visited Madrid.
Riaz Ravat, deputy director at the centre, said: "It is a great coup for us to be selected to host this exhibition."
The exhibition details how in Oman, which is a predominately Muslim country, the rights of minorities such as Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and Jews are guaranteed by the state.
The Rev Canon Dr John Hall, director of St Philip's Centre, said: "We are proud and honoured to be hosting this exhibition."
The exhibition, which is free, is being staged in St Philip's Church at the centre in Evington Road, Evington, from 10am until 4pm up to and including this Friday.
