Homogeneity of religion

Author(s): Sarita Pirsali

Abstract: In multicultural India, the issues involved are inextricably knitted into a complex tissue of history and fiction. Nationwide 'communal' solidarities are being forged for self-defence or self-assertion and their legitimation is backed by distinctly selective perceptions of the past. It is interesting to see how religious identities were not only the formal beliefs that distinguish the group of people with rest but are also the historical process to make one religion rigid and narrow. This process fuelled up in 19 centuries under colonial rule with the rise of various socio-religious movements that reshaped much of the social, cultural, religious, and political life of this area. This sectarian religious movement tends to modify society under the shed of broader religious authority, and then built an organizational structure it maintained over time.
