    Religious Nationalism



    Religious Nationalism is an ideology that incorporates religion into nationalism. It seeks to use a shared religion to unite people under a national identity. It typically holds reactionary and intolerant views towards members of other religions, but not always. Religious nationalism is compatible with practically any religion, including Hind.png Hinduism, Christy.png Christianity, Muslim 2.png Islam, JewTheo.png Judaism, Bud.png Buddhism, etc.

    History and Variants

    Ideologically driven religious nationalism may not necessarily be directed against other religions, but may be formulated in response to modernity and, in particular, as secular. The imbalance between religious and political aspects and, by appealing to national feelings, such as Islamic identity, as has often been the case in Cball-Pakistan.png Pakistan and Cball-Indonesia.png Indonesia, can lead to regional tensions.

    In general, many types of nationalism carry religious aspects, but as a marker of group identity, not as an intrinsic motivation for nationalist claims.

    ChristNat.png Christian Nationalism

    Christian nationalists are more focused on domestic politics, such as passing laws that reflect their view of Christianity. In the Cball-US.png United States, Christian nationalism tends to lean towards Conservative.png Conservatism. Characteristic radical forms of religious or church nationalism appeared in the right spectrum of the political field in various European countries, especially during the interwar period in the first half of the 20th century.

    One of the most radical forms of Christian religious nationalism was Christoslavism, the belief that the PanSlav.png Slavs can be exclusively Christians, and if they abandon this religion, they cease to be Slavs. As an example, Cball-BosniaHerzegovina.png Bosniaks who converted to Islam were considered by the Cball-Serbia.png Serbs as Ottoman.png Turks. Christoslavism was used as an ideological justification for the persecution (as well as eventual genocide) of Cball-BosniaHerzegovina.png Bosniaks during the Yugoslav wars.

    In Polandball.png Poland, a characteristic feature of nationalism has always been loyalty to the Catheo.png Roman Catholic Church. Groups like PolFal.png National Revival of Poland use slogans such as "Wielka Polska Katolicka (Greater Catholic Poland)" and violently protest against the legalization of Gay.png same-sex marriage and abortion.

    In Cball-Russia.png Russia, it is characterized by a common belonging to Orthodoxy. Many Russian Neonazi ball.png neo-Nazi movements, such as Cfash.png Russian National Unity, are calling for an increased role for the Orth.png Russian Orthodox Church.

    According to the two-nation theory, Cball-Pakistan.png Pakistani nationalism is very closely related to the Muslim heritage, the religion of Islam and Pan-Islamism. It is also associated with awareness as well as the expression of religious and ethnic influences that help shape national identity.

    The Cball-Iran.png Iranian Revolution marks the beginning of Shia.png Shia and Persian nationalism. Khom.png Ayatollah Khomeini's anti-American, anti-communist and anti-Zionist views attract several European far-right movements (notably revolutionary nationalists) but worry the international community.

    BuddNat.png Buddhist Nationalism

    In the context of Cball-Myanmar.png Myanmar’s political opening since March 2011, Buddhist activism has made headlines over the past two years due to outbreaks of communal violence across the country marked by religious difference, notably anti-Muslim, that threaten to derail Myanmar’s once-promising transition. Many see a connection between these violent episodes and the rise of new Buddhist networks and organizations, including the 969 movement and the Patriotic Association of Myanmar. [1]

    Sinhalese Buddhist nationalism is influenced by Sinhalese Buddhist mytho-history that was deployed by monks and politicians in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries to assert that Cball-SriLanka.png Sri Lanka is the designated sanctuary for Theravada Buddhism, belongs to Sinhalese Buddhists, and Tamils and others live there only due to Sinhalese Buddhist sufferance. This ideology has enabled majority superordination, minority subordination, and a separatist war waged by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). [2]
