This article aims to highlight the instances of ethnic fanaticism in India. Such activities of fanaticism involve linguistic nationalism, communal antagonism, tribal conflicts, etc. India being a diverse country is home to a variety of cultures, people practise different faiths, speak different language and observe various festivities owing to their festivities. No wonder that the diversity of India rests on the buttress of coexistence among various ethnicities, but such prescence of multiculturalism has time and again led to skirmishes within the country. Such hostilities can be traced to the pervading fanaticism in the Indian society. Fanaticism among a group of people, more often than not, causes antagonism in the minds of that group members towards people of other groups. Incidents involving communal violence or afray can usually be traced to fanaticism. Such incidents have caused destruction within the social fabric. This article aims to explore such instances having their roots in ethnic fanaticism
