Russian professor stressed that,” Bigotry is the biggest
problem that we Muslims are struggling with” and warned,”Bias in ideas and
opinions and lack of understanding other ideas can eventually
lead to gaps.”
He expressed regret over the current crisis and war in the world of Islam and said,” We must realize that there is a difference of taste and that disagreement does
not mean we should be enemies of each other.”
We also disagree with Christians and Jews, and that does not mean that
we are enemies. These people are people of the Book.
We need to understand how to live, interact and understand how to interact
with other religions.. We must be able to find common ground with
other religions or even between ourselves. In these difficult times,
we need to understand each other.
