The Inter-Religious Organisation, Singapore (IRO) has been actively building friendship and trust between Singapore’s diversity of religions. Through the fellowship of religious leaders since its founding 70 years ago in 1949, IRO has spearheaded peaceful interfaith relations to help bring about religious harmony in Singapore. Thus the IRO, a non-government organisation, has had significant impact on the development of multicultural, multiracial, multilingual and multi-religious Singapore.
“If it was ever necessary to create harmony among leaders and followers of different religions, it is more necessary and more urgent today when the world is living in fear of Third World War. With this very idea the Inter-Religious Organisation was founded”
– His Eminence Maulana Abdul Aleem Siddiqui, Founder of IRo, 1949
