Article 18: Major report on religious freedom launched at Westminster 


Religious freedom should become a political priority for the UK and other Governments, not only for the benefits of adherents under pressure but also in the battle against radicalisation. These were among the messages of a major report launched by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on International Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) at Westminster last week. The report was strongly influenced by Baptists and Baptist principles of religious freedom, and the European Baptist Federation was represented by its General Secretary, Tony Peck at the launch. He was joined by more than 120 MPs, Peers, academics, artists, civil society organisations and faith and non-faith groups alike.
