The desire to assert the dominion of the one and only true God has often lead to violence and intolerance. The people of India are verbally assaulted, are ridiculed, and are scoffed at because of their conceptions of god as anthropomorphic. Indians were historically punished for being patrons of idolatry. In an effort to wipe out idolatry from India, numerous temples were destroyed and about 60 to 80 million people were killed between 1000 and 1525 CE.
We need to understand the Indian concept of God worship and we need to ask people to define the realm of Gods of Monotheism.
