Christian Wulff, former Federal President, encouraged people to enter into a dialogue with each other and particularly with Islam. He emphasized on the central role of world religions in promoting world peace. Rather than stressing differences he suggested to focus on the commonalities and, as a positive example, quoted the national soccer team of Germany. While talking about the ongoing essentialization of Islam and Muslim in Germany, he addressed the issues of tolerance and the readiness to engage in dialogue.
