It is caused by the basic pre condition that every single religion has its dogmatic aspect which is not debatable; cannot be conditioned with other religious existence and not easy to be discussed. Our duty is to build safe and peace for together life style; how to encourage the pluralistic community  who consider the pluralism as usual.
