Religion is never the problem; it is the people who don’t get it that cause the problem. The central theme of all religions is restore trust in the society, so people can go on living cohesively without the fear of the other, most people get that right and a few don’t.
Those who don’t get their religion right want to grab everything that they can, creating a cycle of instability. Facts don’t matter to them. Torah, Bible, Quran, Gita or all other holy text books advocate living in harmony, accepting each other as equals in the eyes of God, but these dudes don’t get it, and we have to find a way to include them and have them learn to live with each other in peace.
