Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) president Mohammad Alami Musa has called for interfaith dialogue to deepen and go beyond sharing of meals, as religious fundamentalism continues to rise elsewhere.
Speaking at an in-house lecture hosted by organisers of a Buddhist exhibition at The Arts House on Sunday, Mr Alami pointed to the challenges posed by extremism occurring both near and far.
He said the worst thing that can happen is when religion becomes politicised and politics, in turn, is theologised. “Everything is about God, and you have to take a certain position as you want to seek the pleasure of God – there is no compromise,” he said.
