Violence in the name of religion often occurs because of the ideological interpretation of religion. Well-formulated ideology is obeyed by its followers to achieve certain goals. Ideology may also be appropriated by its proponents to rebel against the status quo that they think is not in line with their belief system. A closed-ideology that perpetuates intolerance is a latent source of conflict and violence. In addition, many religion-oriented violence is associated not only with religion per se as a source of inspiration and legitimacy, but also with such factors as social, economic, political as well as psychological conditions of human being. One-sided explanation of violence in the name of religion is therefore insufficient as religion is not monolithic phenomenon.
