This is to comment on Peter Herz's post. A Record number of ideologicaly motivated deaths by any faiths is clearly held by Islam . In India alone over 100 million were killed by Muslim invaders in a course of few centuries (History by Durant). Death and destruction started in the 7th century when arab Muslims started jihad against the surrounding countries and within a century conquered most of the civilized world from Spain to India. So many Hindus were slaughtered in Afghanistan, once a part of India, that a mountain range there was named Hindu Kash (hindu slaughter).
