Religious discrimination

Religious discrimination has been prevalent in some places across the globe.


Let us look at incidences of religious discrimination in …

  • Germany
  • Israel
  • Saudi Arabia



Adolph Hitler - Chancellor of Germany


During the Nazi era in Germany, under Adolph Hitler, about six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.



Israel is located at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. Israel is the homeland for the Jewish people and makeup 76 % of the population. Thus the Jews are a majority in Israel. About 16 % of the population are Muslims and 8 % are Christians thus a minority. Israel treats its own Muslim and Christian minorities quite badly.

Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest country of the Arabian Peninsula. Saudi Arabia is a monarchy and is governed on the basis of Islamic law. 

In Saudi Arabia, non- Muslims are not allowed to build a temple or church and are not allowed to gather in a public place for prayers.

  • As we see in these incidences members of one religious community either persecute or discriminate against members of other religious communities.

  • These acts of discrimination take place more easily when one religion is given official recognition by the State.

  • No citizen would like to be discriminated against because of his religion; as religion is a personal belief each one has a right to follow, without the interference of others or the government.
