There are various types and degrees of violence. Most of our civilizations have it ingrained in their very foundation. It could be psychological, verbal, sexual, or violent. Individuals, groups, institutions, or nations may cause it. The threat of violence is to humanity. Violence is a hazard to humanity as a whole now. Numerous people participate in collective violence. One form of collective violence that occurs between groups with different religious beliefs is communal violence. Religion is frequently seen as a catalyst for conflict and violent behavior. Religion has, however, always served as a source of both violent and nonviolent inspiration. One of humanity's biggest worries in the modern world may be the sharp rise in violence. India has also been dealing with violence of an unprecedented scope and intensity. In India, communal violence has been a significant factor in preventing peace. India has a wide range of religious, linguistic, and cultural diversity. To preserve society's peace and harmony in its variety, excellent coordination is required. But this hasn't happened. We frequently hear about racial violence in our society. In reality, it begins for unimportant reasons, but when it changes the complexion of communities, people start to divide themselves into parties and fight with one another.
