Abstract

In an age when collective rights and liberties have become more meaningful and important than the rights and liberties of the individual, the study of religious freedom in the collective mentality of a nation proves to be a challenging pursuit. The paper tackles the idea that the vacuum of genuine values and the absence of a balanced collective mind set based on tolerance, self-respect and respect of the other provides the stage for the reiteration of the atrocities of totalitarianism.
