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.
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. Firstly they cause death, injury and might even people for life. Some people would even get traumatized as a result of havocs caused by religious bodies. These people kill people a lot. For example a great number of people were killed in Nigeria when Boko Haram bombed the mosque one Friday.
The Causes of Politicization of Religion Sometimes the cause of politicization of religion is the growing anger by a certain religions or sects of religion as a result of oppression by the state or other religions. The persecution which is not only discriminatory; but also create physical as well as psychological ruthlessness, may produce anger and make the oppressed desperate for freedom (Grim, 2007, pp. 633-658). For example, in Nigeria in 2010. 12,000 people killed in a cycle of violence as a tumour of anger between Christians and Muslims stretching back more than a decade (Greene, 2010).
People are also breathing in toxins from, the guns, and bombs that cause so much damage. Which can lead to deathThese people have to perservere through the civil war. They must keep fighting through the tough time, they must move on. Another real world exmample is the Holoaucaust. During the Holocaust, Germans murdered 6 million Jew just because of their religion.
Issues concerning mortality arouse rapidly. The issue on religion also fires up the issue on humanity. One of which is the issue on slaughtering one hundred forty-seven students at Kenya College. The Somalia-based Al-Shabaab militant group claimed responsibility for the assault. The terror attack sent shivers and was such a horror to those innocent students that were on the building.
He called himself ‘a man of god’, but when Anglican Archbishop Janani Luwum and two other senior Cabinet ministers had an outspoken opinion of which he disagreed with, they were murdered by Amin’s military forces. (Source 3). Amin displays a great amount of hypocrisy by calling himself a man of God and then murdering the arch bishop. It shows his heartlessness towards anyone who does not agree with him or with whom he does not agree. Many people questioned Amin on this as he had blatantly killed a sacred man.
Due to the impossibility to filter or correct the way media reports happenings about Muslims across the globe, Muslims have been largely been perceived as ‘ TERRORISTS’ which makes people who haven’t been familiar with the tenets of Islam afraid of joining the religion. Since the issue of world trade center (9/11), Muslims have been vilified, tortured and victimized of what they knew nothing about. Every attacks have been linked to a Muslim organization which have political undertone like ISIS, Boko haram and so on. The recent events which happen in Egypt in which the president was wrongly overthrown and sent to prison for trying to lead the country in a right way shows the amount of misunderstanding and blind hatred they have for Islam due to the large influx of people entering into the religion of peace.

He urged Muslims not to only talk about Islamophobia but to take real actions to stop or counter the problem. Islamophobia is obviously seen after the 9/11 attacks and it became worst due to the attacks in Paris, recently. A mosque in Texas was defiled with feces and torn pages from the Quran. Verbal and social media threats were made against mosques in Houston and Tampa Bay and a Christian Uber driver in North Carolina was attacked by a passenger who thought he was Muslim. This also affect the refugees fleeing from Syria and Iraq to US where they have to undergo a long process that includes background checks, personal interviews and technology examining the irises of applicants to confirm their identity (Milligan,

But even if we do accept this fact that they are doing to this to grab attention but in the span of last 5 years, Pakistani government has tried to begin a dialogue towards settlement, but the terrorists group in Pakistan weren’t ready and incase of any disagreement they would send an extreme reaction, killing hundreds of
The recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France have led to a global outcry against Islam. With the American President himself accusing Muslims all over the world of being reticent against the rise of extremism in their religion, Islamophobia has reached a never seen before surge, especially in Europe where hate crime against Muslims has grown up to three-hundred percent. Thousands of refugees from the region affected due to the global war on terror, have fled to many countries seeking asylum. There has been a large scale political and social destabilization at the international, which has not only deepened ethnic rivalries, but have caused a racial outcry and new divisions in the society. As a consequence, the Middle-East has become a breeding ground for international politics, most of which is a masquerade for oil politics.
