Central Asian Turkish Republics are a geography which embraces different religions and their members since history. The Muslim Turkish communities who live in this region live in unity and solidarity with members of different religions. In this research, we will deal with the opinions of the Muslim Turkish communities, who live in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, about the other religions and their lives together with the followers of other religions. We will also try to determine the theological, political, strategic, cultural and psycho-social factors which affect the opinions about other religions. It could be said that, there are studies about several subjects in this geography; however, the quantity and quality of these studies that investigate the members of different religions living together is not sufficient. This study is significantly important as it both will evaluate the Opinions of the Muslims who live in these countries about the Other Religions and their coexistence by using field study, and it will determine the theological, political, strategic, cultural and psycho-social factors which affect the opinions about other religions.
