Gilbert Tennent’s most popular book is The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts - Volume V: Pr. Religious violence has been a plague upon humanity for centuries, exercised around the world, always present, periodically very extreme.

It is a problem because religion is being used by those forces, those groups and nations, seeking power and domination, using religion as a justification, as a cause, as a purpose. “Fuel for religious violence comes from the creeds of the religious organizations that fundamentally depict that there is only one absolute and undeniable truth, and all others even mildly different truths are expendable.” ― Abhijit Naskar, Let The Poor Be Your God.

Religious Justification of Violence. Religion is applied so as to validate violence contrary to the other party. In most cases, religious leaders are actively coming up with the use of violence on the basis of religion or quite limitedly they are associated to the actions and violent acts undertaken in the religious realm.

Violence is inherent in the religious act because violence as a threat is innate in humans, and religion offers a symbolized way to domesticate and defuse it”. Violence is throughout the traditions of religions and in biblical text of many of them.

Violence can range in scale from self harm to destruction of a state or country. The relationship between new religious movements (NRMs) and violence has long been a topic of intense public interest--an interest heavily fueled by multiple incidents of mass violence involving certain groups.
