As part of the University's 2017 Festival of Ideas, Cambridge Inter-faith Programme hosted a panel event, "Borders of Violence & Visions of Peace: The Religious Landscapes of South Asia". About sixty people attended to hear our panellists offer a series of presentations approaching our event theme from a variety of angles, before a lively audience Q&A session that touched on a range of topics, including Gandhi, Islamic political theology, inter-faith relations, the role of art, and contemporary Indian politics.
