These days, there is a sense that the practice of religion is no longer confined to the observed solemnity of prayer houses, but instead has moved toward creating noise in public places. Here, we find that, sometimes, the honor of humanity and the glory of God are spread alongside the spirit of ‘war’, leading to an excess of radicalism and intolerance. With Wicaksono Adi and Haidar Bagir, we invite you to a discussion of how we can begin to approach or respond to these issues, and how we can fight for a better life to be shared and lived together.
