But, tension and clashes do not mean antagonism. The British indeed took advantage of the fissures that were already present in the Indian society and attempted to create antagonism. During the British colonial rule, religion was never the only reason for the communal issues in India or the tensions between Hindus and Muslims, but also, favouritism and communal elections and economic status, which were in a way or another aggravated by the British. We can say that there is indeed some truth in what Sir S.A Khan said. Hindus and Muslims could not sit on the same throne at that time but they would the least want the British to sit on the throne and rule over
These categories include; have a holy book, had a prophet, believe in the Almighty God is personal, international recognition, and a comprehensive system of religious law (Intan, 2006) Researcher indicated that the reasons behind the use of these categories in defining religion influenced by pressure from groups that carry this dominant narrative in pushing its interests to the state. One group of dominant narrative bearers of the most vocal is the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI). To understand more about the dynamics of the category of official religions and non-official religions in Indonesia, can be seen in table 1.

The presence left from this glorious Hindu-Buddhist era has never left Indonesia, forever altering the many areas of the nation’s culture. The religious values, economic success, intellect and art of Indonesia were the main areas the Indians managed to influence. The Indian-brought religions of Hinduism and Buddhism impacted Indonesia’s religious customs and values. First brought when they were declining in India, Hinduism and Buddhism quickly replaced Indonesia’s original religion of animism (“The Period of Hindu Kingdoms”). Although originally the rural people
Whoever dominated got not only economical power, but political power: the power to [forever] influence the region. In the end, the Muslims dominated other cultures. One of the reasons they had so much power was their ability to travel via the sea because “ ...[T]he brahmanical taboo regarding sea travel. Traders belonging to the brahmanical religion were not allowed to travel on the sea, ...” (Rao 229) Two more reasons are were temple donations, and their power in the Middle East, “Muslim traders and their associations are mentioned in various temple documents. They donated to temples and thereby attempted to obtain legitimacy in the society.” (Rao 226) “Like the Muslims, the Gauda Saraswats and Jain trading communities gave donations to temples and participated in internal trade.
Islamisation was a sudden break of Hinduism history; after key conversions of men of prowess in the region, Islam became key to understanding social-political changes in Southeast Asia. The successful early Islamisation in Java caused old Hindu-Buddhist gods to be forgotten. Soon enough, "to be Javanese began to mean be Moslem" as well.

As someone who practices Hinduism in India, we can assume that Goel dislikes the Christian missions from past and present. Therefore, Goel wrote this paper to directly explain why the Christian missions have negatively impacted the Indian communities. Goel’s paper was published in 1996. Looking at the date we can assume that Goel experienced first-hand the repercussions of the Christian missions as many of these events occurred from 1950 (Constitution of Independent India) to the day his paper was published. It is a possibility that Goel may have attended one of the schools that were created for the conversion of children.

Aguinaldo had a deal with the Americans to help take back their freedom; his trust for the Americans was too strong that it blurred the actual intention the Americans wanted to accomplish—colonize the Philippines, but America had an agreement called the Benevolent Assimilation which means they cannot immediately attack whenever they want, there should be a valid reason; but this did not stop them from preparing for their future attack. Weapons and other arms were sent to Hong Kong for America to
They wanted to be separated from the people with Christians as a majority of their religion. Even though the American managed the political system and the structure of governance of the Philippines wherein the ideals was in the line of democracy and liberalism but the Muslims don’t seem to believe that those ideals can be put into practice by a Christian-led Filipino government thus a Muslim secessionist movement was created it was a political undertaking to create a nation state that is seen as not possible under the process of Philippine nation-state building. Despite that the decision of the USA government nonetheless the decision of the USA government to grant independence to the Philippines with the integration of the Muslim people and their lands into a single Philippine statehood compelled Muslim leaders to abandon their quest for a sovereign nation
The challenge is that the distinction between political ideology practiced by those who later led to the emergence of other problems in the relationship of two parties; Malaysia-Indonesia.
