Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH) is a post-war, multinational, multi-religion country with an eventful history pertaining to communal unrest. The capital city of Sarajevo is a unique metropolis where 4 religions coexist. Within a radius of only 1km, there are places of worship for 4 different religions- Church, Mosque, Orthodox Church and Synagogue. Nowadays, Bosnia, along with other countries from Europe are witnessing humanitarian migration crises. This shows that religious differences are still the root of many conflicts around the world. Due to lack of understanding of other religions, people create opinions leading to communal hatred and violence. The Interreligious Council in Bosnia and Herzegovina wanted to tackle prejudice and raise awareness of the importance of inter-religious dialogue.
