Exhibition opens in Kazakh capital displaying the many faces of Islam

29 March, 2021 16:16
A photo exhibition "Islam and Humanity: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" opened in the Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan by the Nazarbayev Center for the Development of Interfaith and Inter-Civilization Dialogue, reports a Strategy2050.kz correspondent.

The exhibition is part of a series of thematic exhibitions devoted to the world and traditional religions. It displays nearly 45 photos collected from different religious and public institutions across the Muslim world. 

The organizers said the preparations took almost a year. 

"We have tried to select those (photos) that portray Islam, daily life, those that show that Islam is a peaceful religion that calls for spirituality," said Chair of the Nazarbayev Center for the Development of Interfaith and Inter-Civilization Dialogue Bulat Sarsenbayev. 

The exhibition also marks the 30th anniversary of Kazakhstan's independence.
