World Religions After 9/11
It's been ten years since the fall of the World Trade Tower in New York City on September 11th. Many things have happened since then as a result of that harrowing day. And many questions remain.
This week, representatives of religions from around the world are gathering in Montreal for the second time since 9/11. That group will include the Dalai Lama, Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi and author Deepak Chopra. They believe that since 9/11, religion has become a dirty word. And it is urgent that we do something about that perception.
Their host is Dr Arvind Sharma, a professor of comparative religion and a specialist in Hinduism, at McGill. He joins Geeta in studio.
