Hate oozes hardness of heart, a scourge of the human race, a fiend in human shape, a worker of iniquity, the evil eye and the cloven hoof. It sows dissentions among all. Hate is an inferno that is never quenched and it is the worm that never dies. Hate is the dominion of warped, wicked and wilted. Hate is a primordial, parochial and perversionary process of aversion towards a caste, creed, colour, customary practices, ethnicity, ideology, and nationality, membership of social group, religion, race, political opinion and social origin indoctrinated by one population to another population. It has also involved preposterous predilections, paradoxical preferences and polemical prejudices well-founded upon the damnatory discrimination against a wide variety of "non-white" sexes, groups, genders, communities, societies, regions and nation-states. White supremacy is infested with a paranoid precarity, racial raison d’etre and xenophobic xylonite.
On the other hand mawkish movements such as Anti-Gay, LGBT, Racism, Religious Freedoms and Blasphemy Laws across the globe have sent shockwaves contrary to rule of law, justice, equity and good conscience. There is a great deal of social stress in India over violence between Muslims and Hindus. If the Indian government proves unable to deliver justice, it will lose its legitimacy as a government for multiple religions or ethnicities. Thus, there is a great deal riding on this: not just justice for the victims and their families, but justice for Indian society as a whole. Although religion is often seen as a force for good, in reality it is often a force for evil, too. One of the ways in which religion can cause problems is by causing people to become intolerant: intolerant of other religions, intolerant of other races, etc. particularly in India.
