Abstract

The article reveals the important role of Inter-Faith Harmony Forum (IFHF) in ensuring the harmony of life among religious communities. IFHF, we argue, has constructive effects to encourage interaction and communication among distinct religious adherent. The forum is reducing social barriers that was previously segregating them in groups. Therefore, IFHF is not merely active in the scope of religion, but also the social, cultural, and political spheres. The role of IFHF in those spheres gives a distinctive touch to stimulate a sense of solidarity and the importance of the harmonious of religious life, especially in specific Malang community. In the social sphere, the forum facilitates comfortable meetings for communities. While, in the cultural sphere, unique and targeted approaches allow people to be comfortable during communication. Furthermore, in the political area, it bridges people's aspirations that precede to government policy. The research employs specifically ethnography methods, collaborating qualitative interpretation of selective subjects and group discussions.
