In the era of modernization and globalization fueled by capitalism and liberalism, members of religious communities have a chance to interpret religion at will. As a result, religion loses its image as the source of value and
norm and as the guidance of collective behavior in social and cultural life. It rather appears as a source of religious recognition through the process of construction,
deconstruction, and reconstruction, which is more individualistic in relation to interpretation and comprehension. Many academics in this regard call the current era the resurrection era of religious thought together with social conflict.1 Although religion does not have the same impact as before, religious thoughts still play a pivotal role. As Huston Smith mentions, the
world today has entered a critical period in the sense that religion has become the weak point of national and konstitutional life. The loyalty of religious members negatively tends to bear an exclusive ideology that is capable of causing ethnic-religious conflicts.
