There is a lot of religious violence in India ever since it has broken free from the British Colony. This occurred back in the year 1947. This is also the year when Pakistan separated from India to become an Islamic county. There were a lot of wars and issues at that time that truly made a lot of changes to the country at that time.

In India, there are a lot of available religions, but most of the people there believe in Hinduism. Some people say that there is still some violence against the Muslims who are living in India, though even if times are modern now. Some parts of India seem to be living in a backward manner.

Religion violence in India has been mainly between Muslims and Hindus. Religion violence in India is the act of violence between followers of one religious group and another. India as classified in persecuting religious minorities by the US commission on international religious freedom.

A large scale of violence has continued to occur in India since their impendence from the British colonial rule.

The reason why there is violence or riots in India is that there are different religions who have a strong belief about their religion and do not believe in other people's religion and believe that those that are not practicing their religion should be.

They were punished on earth for not doing the right thing or killed so they can go to hell.

There is religious violence in India, mainly because there are different groups that are available there that feel very strongly about their religion. There are some people who believe that those who do not believe in the type of religion that they believe in will go to hell or will be punished.

For some people, they believe that they should do the punishment themselves. They try to “punish” and hurt people who belong to other religions or have different beliefs from them. There are different riots that take place from time to time because of this reason alone. People have died and have gotten hurt because of the various riots between the varying religious groups.

Religious violence in India has been going on for decades. The reason for this violence is against Muslims. The first documented account came in 1947. During this time, the Muslim and Hindu communities were attacking one another.

Some Hindu groups were upset that Islamic groups took over India. Since the violence that started many years ago, statistics show that 10,000 people have been killed over the years. Years later, and Muslims still have to fight for equality. Many of them have begun protesting the discrimination that they are facing, including not being able to have a title of citizenship.

There is religious violence in India because of the alleged cases of violence against Muslims. This kind of violence against Muslims was first recorded in 1947 when both Muslim and Hindu communities were launching attacks against one another. One of the root causes of this violence is the history of how some Islamic groups conquered India.

According to the statistics, about 10,000 people have been killed since when the violence started. In recent times, a lot of Muslims are protesting against what they perceive as an act of discrimination towards them. This is actually about a law restricting Muslims from being granted the citizenship title even when other immigrants are being given.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to look into this even after he has been accused of promoting laws that are anti-Muslim. Also, the level of confrontation met by the Muslims from Hindus when protesting against this law is actually what escalated the violence.
