Purpose of Research
According to the research taken by UNHCR, over 12million refugees seek asylum outside of their home countries, and 18million people suffer physically/emotionally because of religious conflicts. The history of the major conflicts and wars will probably suggest several explanations, and religion is the root of all major wars around the world. Recent Libya crisis and 9.11 crises are also based on religious conflicts. Our group decided to examine 2 regions- Kashmir (Pakistan vs India), and Palestine (Israel vs Palestine), where ongoing conflicts are causing serious international terrorism and massacre, and create many victims around the world.
