HIWM Seyyed Abolhasan Navvab,
The Honorable President of the University of Religions and Denominations,
In a time when the hegemonic system and the false claimants of religion and denomination are spreading hatred and drumming antagonism and blocking the way for coexistence, I am grateful to those who devote their noble endeavors and valuable experiences to learn more about other religions and denominations and use their existential and epistemic capitals in religious cohesion, forbearance, and moral and human tolerance and open the way for dialogue and interaction between scholars and followers of religions and denominations.

Seyyed Abbas Salehi,
The Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance”
