The majority of the religious communities, through the centuries, have pursued a theology of altercation. People believed that one’s own identity depended on their apparent dissimilarity – I know who I am because I know what I am opposed to. I am a Christian because I certainly am not a Hindu or a Muslim or a Jew or a person of other faith and the same stands for a Hindu, a Muslim, a Jew and a person of other faith as well. People have made use of other religions to justify their own religion.
