In social life, moderation in religion is distorted which causes disharmony between religious communities in Indonesia. Differences in beliefs and teachings are the background for social estrangement in the practice of religious moderation. Therefore, the practice of religious moderation apart from implementing the limits, measures and indicators recommended by the Ministry of Religion of the Republic of Indonesia, also requires a real approach in order to realize a moderate society. This qualitative research uses the literature study method, namely collecting several existing books and literature as the main object, then using a descriptive analysis approach to produce clear, objective descriptions and explanations on the systematic, analytical, and critical thinking about harmonization of fundamentalism in various moderation practices in Indonesia. The study shows that to realize the harmonization of the wrong understanding of religious moderation in Indonesia, a real approach is needed: 1) disseminating the meaning contained in Bhineka Tunggal Ika, 2) implementing an attitude of tolerance towards local culture, 3) upholding the attitude of non-violence by controlling excessive emotions.
