The Challenges of Cultural Diversity

Question

Do you see the different meanings of the single term "Communalism"?

Answer

Yes, communalism is meant in English by something shared by or for the use of a number of people who love together viz that of natural effect or keeping aloof oneself in the issue whatsoever. However, in South Asian meaning, it is strongly charged either positive (if one is sympathetic to communalism) or negative (if one is opposed to it).

Thus, in latter meaning, it reveals chauvinism or an agressive and unreasonable belief that one's community, religion or country is better than all others. Hence, it gives birth to riots, blood-shed and cankerous carnage.
