Religious activities ‘stable', comply with law

HCM CITY— Religious activities in the first six months of this year were stable and complied with the law, reported the Government Committee for Religious Affairs here yesterday.

At a meeting with the Ministry of Home Affairs and leaders of religious committees from eight provinces in the south-east area, the committee said that, in general, religious activities attracted many followers under favourable conditions created by all levels of Government. The committee also reported that religious organisations had opened training courses for dignitaries and followers. They had also promoted, transferred and appointed dignitaries and officials and focused on building, repairing and upgrading training facilities, places of worship.

The organisations had participated in charitable activities and the patriotic movement while expanding international relations through religious training and international activities.

For the rest of the year, State management of religion will be strengthened according to law. The fight will also continue against the misuse of religion and undermining national unity.

Opportunities will also be created for religious organisations to participate in international diplomatic activities and to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Viet Nam Buddhist Sangha (1981-2011). — VNS
