This is the 7th in our NCOI series. The initial phase of this dialogue started on 25th January 2014. Co-organized by Islamic Renaissance Front (IRF) and Oriental Hearts and Mind Study Institute (OHMSI) the organizers produced a 13-page full Report of the Dialogue.
The same document was transformed into a 3-page Policy Document (PDF, 355 KB) which is now tabled for review and support by all NGOs attending the final phase of the 7th NCOI. The co-organizing NGOs are IRF, Global Movement of Moderates or GMM, Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia or SABM, Sisters in Islam or SIS, National Evangelical Christian Fellowship or NECF, Gabungan Bertindak Malaysia or GBM and OHMSI.
