On 6 December 23 years ago, a violent crowd of around 1,50,000 kar sevaks from the right-wing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), workers from its political wing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and activists from other Hindutva organisations like the VHP, tore down the 16th-century Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. The destruction of the masjid resulted in several clashes between Hindu and Muslim communities in several parts of the nation that killed at least 2,000 people. The Babri Masjid was demolished over the claims that there once existed a Ram temple beneath it which was destroyed by Mughal general Mir Baqi who then built a mosque at the site, believed to be Ram Janmabhoomi (the mythological birthplace of Lord Rama). Thousands of Hindutva activists
In the nineteenth century Hazaras tried rising against the Pashtuns, but met with horrible violence. Pashtuns killed Hazaras, burned their home, sold their women and drove them from their lands. The reason for this is Pashtuns Muslims are Sunni and Hazaras are Shi’a Muslims. Here we can see that the reason the Pashtuns hate the Hazaras is given by which sect of Muslim they are. In the novel The Kite Runner Taliban went door to door calling for the men and the boys and shot them in front of their families.
For many years India struggled greatly for their independence. The three major events in the Indian fight against British rule were: the Golden Temple Massacre, the Salt March, and the homespun movement. During the Temple Massacre British and Gurkha troops killed at least 379 unarmed Indians meeting at the Jallianwala Bagh, to discuss nonviolent resistance and protest. However, the British had passed a law that said they were forbidden from encouraging and having meetings about nonviolent protests. The Salt March, which took place in India, was an act of civil disobedience.
The force and bloodiness with which Pinochet and his followers pursued their ideological enemies profoundly shocked the Chilean people if not the whole world. Thousands were detained. Many were tortured. Many more simply disappeared. In the aftermath of the bloody coup d'etat of September, 1973, rape of detained women by their military jailors was common.
Many of his uncles and cousins plotted to replace him on the throne. He was sent into exile in Afghanistan after he lost the battle against Shaibani Khan over Samarkand. While at war a big indian army wanted to kill Akbar. If the army had defeated Akbar at the time, the mughal empire would not have existed today. The army could of easily have won but it just so happened that an arrow hit the indian general in the eye, the sight was so horrific that the soldiers retreated.
Many of these events were covered in bloodshed, and all this bloodshed could be traced back to intolerance and indifference. For example, the well known leader of India’s independence movement, Gandhi, was assassinated by, “a Hindu extremist who objected to Gandhi’s tolerance for the Muslims, “(History.com, 1948 Gandhi Assassinated). The main reason for his assassination was that someone was intolerant of his tolerance for the Muslims. This portrays another time in which intolerance led to death. Also, the assassination of Gandhi is similar to that of Martin Luther King Jr., the main civil rights leader in the United States during the sixties who often protested the unfair treatment of blacks in America.
Once the European settlers showed up, the way of war changed drastically. The settlers brought with them deadly diseases which wiped out thousands of Indians. This caused the tradition of Mourning Wars to shift from sporadic ones, to instead become a constant battle to regain lost lives. This caused a large strain on Indian society, now relying on war to regain population and creating a more violent

Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
Multiple killings of Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims round the year resulted to hundreds of thousands of refugees abandoning their homes where they were in the religious minority, and culminated in Pathan tribesmen and the Poonch rebels invading Kashmir, and conducted mass killings in Baramula (Insight on Conflict,
