Communalism in India

Lets start with knowing what is communalism ? Communalism is described as an ideology stating the division between states (people, groups of people or communities) on the basis of ethnicity, religion, beliefs, values, etc . The idea of creating community is to make this world a better place to live but what happened really ?

It has became a significant social issue in countries like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka. Communal conflicts between religious communities in India, especially Hindus and Muslims, have occurred since the period of British colonial rule, occasionally leading to serious inter-communal violence. From 2005 to 2009, an average of 130 people died every year from communal violence, or about 0.01 deaths per 100,000 population.

We live in 21st century but we still hung up on communalism. we still hear news about people brutally murdered due to inter caste marriages will this barbarism come to an end. We cannot blame anyone for this we have to blame ourselves because its us who has been holding om to our community. We require our community to get admission in schools , colleges etc .

How can we end it ? We can end communalism by Interacting and befriending people of different religions.Understanding the political and historical reasons behind fights between people of different religions. understanding the economic and social problem through logic rather than prejudice . However we can come up with many remedies and solutions as i said the can should be brought between us before enforcing into our society. communalism can be only ended by building trust between people of different religious without trust, rumors and fights to develop that trust just remember they are also a human being and think how will you feel when someone treats you like this just because you born in a different mother…
