Article 18 in the declaration of human rights clearly states that everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. Everyone can practice the religion of their preference or change their religion at will. They are also entitled to wear any religious garments at any time. However, people can also have no religion at all.
Religious discrimination is a problem and it happens every day. Why is it a problem? Simply because some people take disagreements of religious views to new extremes. Throughout history there have been countless horrific wars due to people wanting everyone in a certain area to follow one religion. Today people are being bullied, arrested, socially rejected, and even killed because of religious violence. To make matters worse there are now terrorist groups relating to religion in 74 countries.
People all around the world are discriminated and persecuted because only one out of four countries respect their freedom of religion laws. This affects everyone. It causes wars, separates families, and drives us even farther away from world peace. The countries that have the highest restrictions on religion are Arabia, Pakistan, and Iran. In these countries they have an official religion and those who believe otherwise are rejected. Certain religious groups have now been banned in forty countries.
For many Years world peace has been a goal for humanity. However, if things keep going on as they are, the world will never achieve it. Religious conflict has caused many major events and battles. The reason why people disagree is because everyone thinks that they are in the right. It is not religion that is the problem, it is the people! Everyone has the right to believe in what they want no matter what others think. No one can take that away. In order to achieve our goal, the world needs to respect one another and take the first step to stopping religious discrimination.
- One out of three countries have restrictions on religion.
- North and South America have the lowest restrictions on religion.
- 90% of religious groups have to register with the government.
