Abstract

Various models of violence in social life might be caused by religion. Violence in the name of religion does not only occur in Indonesia but has spread all over the world. Frequently, the violence, cruelty, and tragedy of humanity are not only caused mainly by religion, but also triggered by political factors, power, racism, ethnocentrism, colonialism as well as capitalism. This paper is the result of field study using the social definition paradigm with interpretive symbolic theory. The data sources are limited to socio-anthropological factors that lead to violent behavior in the name of religion.

This article has revealed two socio-anthropological factors resulting in the behavior of religious violence: a) theological-normative-conservative factors and b) sociological-pragmatic-economic, sociological-pragmatic-political, and sociological-religious-ethical factors. The first factor has led to a fanatical, truth claim, exclusive, textual and scriptural attitude, which became the main factor of religious radicalism. Meanwhile, the second factor has produced religion-based violence due to political aspects, economic sectors, and social integrity.
