Necessity and Importance of Interculturalinterreligious Dialogue and Initiatives of Fethullah Gülen

1. Introduction

Being belivers of different religions and different cultures, we should confess that religions, especially monotheistic religions do not like ‘tolerence’ very much. Most of the religions and sects, at the risk of their own decline, prefere protecting the faithful against, so called deviation of the faith they uphold: Heresies, schism, heterodoxy etc. , must be condemned. That was the logic and the mentality of the religious wars during the history.
