“We may be diverse in terms of our beliefs, but we are united in making our communities better places,” commented Elvin Low, a Singapore Soka Association (SSA) youth member, on what he learned through participating in the Tampines West Inter-Racial and Religious Confidence Circle (IRCC) Harmony Tour 2014.
On September 20, led by SSA Vice General Director Tan Hiang Keng, some ten SSA youth division members joined the tour.
The group visited Gurdwara Sahib Yishin, a Sikh temple, and the Muslim Converts’ Association of Singapore, also known as Darul Arquam Singapore. During the visits, the group learned about many aspects of both Sikhism and Islam.
