Education aims to shape attitudes and behaviors towards civilized human beings.  An education system that only emphasizes the transfer of knowledge, makes education no longer meaningful and has a positive effect on learners.  It is less touching on the humanism side that ultimately develops pluralism as the foundation of multiculturalism.  This model of religious education will only create learners to make "abdullah" that is only pious individually.  The understanding of pluralism and multiculturalism that has become a commodity in the political field will continue to roll in the realm of national education, including Islamic religious education which is integrally part of the national education system.  The purpose of this research is to illustrate the implementation and implications of multicultural-based PAI at SMA Kertosono.
