NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF RELIGION ON SOCIETY Religious groups have had vey bad effects on society; they caused a lot of harm to people and property.

For example a great number of people were killed in Nigeria when Boko Haram bombed the mosque one Friday.
Western media have negatively impacted the lives of Muslims living not only in the Middle East but also the U.S. Due to this, the Muslim community has grown increasingly afraid of the western population and has further divided among each other. September 11, 2001, a day of disaster struck. Many might even insist the worst day to ever happen on American soil. A group of Muslims representing “ Al Qaeda”, crashed 2 planes into the World Trade Center. Maybe that wasn’t clear.?
What misconceptions does mass media play in the role of discrimination against Islam and Muslims?

In Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk explores the theme of violence through chaotic events. One of these events is fighting.
With the gap between rich and poor increasing rapidly in recent years, more religious terrorist attacks have taken place. This issue caused an aggressive debate about the influence of religions in western countries for religions had played an important role in the history of West, even today; religions are still an indispensable part of Western society. Religion is a cultural system of behaviours and practices, world views, sacred texts, holy places, ethics, and societal organisation that relate humanity to what an anthropologist has called "an order of existence" (Clifford 1993).Religion originated in western society is the consequence of the development of ancient human society, which explored the beginning of the universe eagerly, and gradually it became an important spiritual source of western society.

The people who practice Islam have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at airports because of stereotypes that have become associated with the religion. It is common today for people to assume that all Muslims are terrorists because of the recent terrorist attacks. This is not the only way people in America make assumptions based off stereotypes. The film Remember the Titans clearly shows discrimination between race in America in the 1970s.
Religious related attacks have increased in every nation of the world. Religion has been the modern way of terrorism, b which people try to destroy the other part of religion. The reason why it has taken an extra attention is because of the globalization, which is changing everything. According to Woodlock, “Religious identity not only survives but can take on heightened significance when national and political alliances break apart, as happened in the former Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, when Serbs, Croats and Bosniacs were divided along Orthodox, Catholic and Muslim fault lines”.

There are many disturbing images and video-clips from religious based groups like ISIS that are surfacing and they are using for them to obtain resources. Terrorism poses a major threat to peace and security in an international system because it creates distress, damages the security on international travel, and the relationships between other countries.
Barbara Diefendorf's book, The Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre is a window into the struggle of religion and secular power during the Protestant Reformation. Beyond the social elitism, mob mentality is an ever-present force that is ignited during the Religious Wars. Differences in religion are a contributor to factional tensions. Manipulation by religious leaders and misunderstanding between the two religious sects’ practices create this religious tension. Although Protestants and Catholics share the core teachings of Christianity, a struggle for secular power, feelings of tribalism, and conflicting religious ideals not only solidify the schism between these two sects of Christianity, but escalated these tensions to bloodshed.
One of the largest concerns of the modern world has become the war on terrorism and the prevention of terroristic attacks. With the recent growth of the number of attacks committed by the terrorists and the number of their victims, this issue has become one of the central problems in the globalized world. The issue has been widely discussed after the attack of 9/11 in the USA. Referring to this destructive event, it has contributed to the establishment of the United States as the main adversary of the terrorism all over the world. However, in a world that is more and more subjected to the influence of globalization, there was a large shift.
