What does inter or multifaith mean?
Interfaith refers to cooperative and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions, at both the individual and broader level. Interfaith dialogue often involves promoting understanding between different religions to increase 'tolerance' towards others. The aim is to derive a common group belief that there are more similarities between faiths than differences.
