      Iranian cleric calls for Christian Orthodox-Shia dialogue

      A top Iranian Shia cleric highlighted importance of interfaith dialogues
      and demanded for talks to be held between Islamic and Christian
      denominations.

      (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Hujjat-ol-Islam Alireza Arafi, Head of Al
      Mustafa International University, met with a delegation of Christian
      Orthodox bishops and university professors from Bucharest University and
      said the necessities for confrontation with the present challenges ahead
      of religions are to be found in Islam and Christianity.

      He referred to the theme and philosophy shared among Abrahamic
      religions, particularly Islam and Christianity, and said, “Qur’an has a
      pleasant view on Christianity and the religion has been accurately
      expressed by Imams (AS).”

      Member of the Cultural Revolution Council, counted cooperation and
      comparative analysis in the fields of philosophy, theoretical and
      practical mysticism as some of the moves for interaction and exchange of
      experiences among Abrahamic religions.

      This religious figure also noted guidance of the people as an important
      duty of the religious scholars and announced the preparation of Al
      Mustafa International University for cooperation in comparative studies
      and boosting ties between the center and Bucharest University as well as
      Christian Orthodox Church.
