Golden Rule texts in 13 religions translated into Urdu


from Paul McKenna, Scarboro Missions Interfaith Dept.

Scarboro Missions is proud to announce that the Golden Rule texts in 13 religions have been translated into Urdu and can be downloaded free of charge from the Scarboro site. The translation was done by Shahid Akhtar, an interfaith activist in Mississauga , Ontario Canada .

It is estimated that close to one billion people understand spoken Urdu. The use of the Urdu language is concentrated in South Asia but Urdu-speaking people reside in many countries throughout the world.

The publication of these texts in Urdu is an effort to further universalize the already universal message of the Golden Rule.
