The United Religions Initiative (URI) was founded in 1988 in Lahore, Pakistan. The URI is a global initiative to promote inter-religious harmony across the world, and therefore its local chapter in Pakistan works towards achieving the same objective at the national level.
Since its establishment in Pakistan, the URI has been actively engaged in numerous activities to create a culture of peace, reconciliation and justice. In over 10 years, the URI has managed to reach people at the grassroots level through 30 URI Cooperation Circles in different parts of the country. The URI Cooperation Circles are aimed at initiating inter-faith dialogues at local levels.
In addition, the URI in Pakistan has also been participating in the global campaign to create a global day of peace and non-violence. In this regard, the URI has also been organising activities to raise awareness of peace on the international day of peace.
