The charity's chairman Bashir Chaudhry was the event's key organiser and said Redbridge is 'a model of harmony' with multiple faiths coming together peacefully.

He said: 'Interfaith dialogue is an interaction between different communities and people from all walks of life gathering together, sharing thoughts and views in an understanding and respectful manner.

'Dialogue between different faiths, begins when people meet each other without judgment, and when misunderstanding is replaced with trust.
