Datuk Ong Tee Keat, the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports opened the exhibition. The opening was attended by representatives from different religions.

In conjunction with the opening, Datuk Ong Tee Keat also launched the Chinese language version of the 'World Religions' exhibition catalogue.

The English language version of this exhibition was first shown in Malaysia at Wisma Kebudayaan in 2003. Since then it has been exhibited all over Malaysia. This exhibition introduces a number of world religions including Indigenous Religions, Buddhism, Chinese Religion, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Bahai Faith and Nichiren Buddhism. Six core ethical standards are introduced in this exhibition. They are common to all religions (1) Treat others as you would like to be treated; (2) Every human being must be treated humanely; (3) Have respect for life; (4) Deal honestly and fairly; (5) Speak and act truthfully and (6) Respect and love one another, and be responsible for your partner's happiness. These six basic principles for a global ethic have been accepted 'by the Parliament of the World's Religions in 1993.
