Gus Sholah said, in the future inter-religious people must not judge each other and promote mutual respect. According to him, if the people don't respect each other, then it will only end with a war of words, which can lead to disunity. 

"If we attack each other there will be war of words which potentially to split all of us," he said.

Gus Sholah explained, in the year 2017, there were quite a lot of people who think Islamophobia has been rising in Indonesia. However, he hoped it does not really happen. 

"ˇhere are people who think so. Hopefully that is not true and if it's true, hopefully the government is aware of it," said Gus Sholah.
