Religious leaders of different faiths and academics from across South Asia met in Dhaka yesterday to debate ways to reduce tensions in the wake of recent violence following a film demeaning the Prophet Mohammed.

Professor Anbumani Aurmugam of Annamalai University in Tamil Nadu, India, said advances in technology should not translate into new ways to demean religions.

“We must not brand one as the best but treat all equally,” he said.

Father Tapan De Rozario, a Catholic priest and professor of world religion at Dhaka University, condemned the film Innocence of Muslims in what was a mainly Muslim-focused discussion amid recent violence in the region involving minority Rohingyas in western Myanmar and ethnic violence in Assam, India.
