What do you think are the reasons of these clashes? Would you say the prime reason is the difference in religion, difference of culture or political benefits?”In response, 39% blamed these clashes on the difference in religion, 16% said it is because of differences in culture while 38% said the reason is political benefits. Only 7% said they did not know/did not wish to respond.
