The role, which supports the Prime Minister’s commitment to religious tolerance in the UK, will allow Lord Ahmad to demonstrate the country’s commitment to religious freedom, by promoting inter-faith respect and dialogue internationally.
Lord Ahmad, who is also Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the UN at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, will promote the UK’s firm stance on religious tolerance abroad, helping to tackle religious discrimination in countries where minority faith groups face persecution.
The appointment underscores the Prime Minister’s commitment to tackling religious prejudice in all its forms, and follows the government’s recent announcement of a further £1 million funding for places of worship that have been subjected to hate crime attacks.
