 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Sacred sites offer believers the possibility of communing with the divine and achieving deeper insight into their faith. Yet their spiritual and cultural importance can lead to competition as religious groups seek to excluderivals from practing potentially sacilegious rituals in the hallowed space and wish to assert their own claims. Holy places thus create the potential for military, theological, or political clashes, not only between cometing relisious groups but also between religious groups and secular actors.

In War on Sacred Grounds, Ron E.

Hassner illustrates a complex not poorly understood political dilemma with accounts of the failures to reach settlement at Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, leading to the clashes of 2000, and the competing claims of Hindus and Muslims at Ayodhya, which resulted in the destruction of the mosque there in 1992. He also addresses more successful compromises in Jerusalem in 1967 and Mecca in 1979.
