Religious discrimination is the unequal treatment of an individual or group based on their beliefs. It can include favoritism of a religious group, limits on converting between religions, attempts to eliminate religious groups, prohibition of worship or practice of certain beliefs, harassment over religious dress, and more. It can be perpetrated by individuals, governments, at workplaces, in communities, or even schools.

What can you do as a peacemaker? Being a peacemaker means respecting different views and beliefs, even if you don’t agree with them. To fight against religious discrimination, you can start by respecting religious differences, focusing on widely shared differences, and bringing together people from different faiths to build relationships with one another.
