On February 3, two mosques were burned down in Amhara region, Gondar after an altercation at a wedding. Many suspected that the conflict had a political motive rather than any religious implication. The religious leader of the two religions condemned the events and demanded actions against those responsible. Currently, residents in the area and Christian and Muslims from all around are lending a hand to rebuild the two mosques. This cooperation reassured the century-long sustained relationship among the followers of the religions in Ethiopia. It is known that Ethiopia has been hit with ethnic violence for the past few years and the religious conflict is worsening the situation. Many blame the conflicts on political forces who are out to destroy the peace of the country.
