What we believe

Václav Havel: Seek the company of those who are searching for the truth, and avoid those who have found it.

Nikkyo Niwano (founder of IARF member group Rissho Kosei-kai; IARF President 1981-84):

The International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF), the world’s first international inter-religious organization, is now a UK-based charity working for freedom of religion & belief at a global level.

We have a century-plus history of encouraging tolerance & interfaith encounter through dialogue & social justice projects. Since our founding in 1900, various faith traditions have been represented in our member groups, Chapters and young adult network, including Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Shinto, Sikh & Zoroastrian.
