Religious leaders should promote the recognition that all are equal regardless of faith, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said Wednesday at a conference tackling the responsibilities of religious leaders in promoting human rights.The overlying theme of the conference was coexistence and respect for different faiths, beliefs and values. The conference, at Beirut's Lancaster Plaza, was attended by a number of religious, diplomatic and civil society figures and was headed by OHCHR's regional representative in Beirut Abdel Salam Sidahmed.Salama rhetorically queried whether the world was not yet tired of repeatedly perpetrating incidents like the genocide of the Yazidi population in Iraq. He cited Lebanon as a country functioning both as a past example of religious warfare and a current example of religious coexistence.
