Rockford Interfaith Council's open house of worship teaches people about other faiths
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
People of different religions came together as one on Sunday.
The Rockford Interfaith Council held an open house Sunday afternoon at Nanaksar Sikh Temple of Rockford. The council says the goal of this program is to foster relationships between the many faiths of Rockford. Pastor Baba Ji said most people confuse the Sikh faith with other similar faiths, so they welcome any and all questions.
"They think they are Muslims, but we are not," said Baba Ji Daljit Singh, the pastor of Nanaksar Sikh Temple. "We are Sikh. Peace, harmony, that's the major ideology of the Sikh religion...unity, equality of society."
The Rockford Interfaith Council represents every major faith and many denominations to work towards a tolerant community.
