Religiously-motivated conflict, violence,
oppression, unjustified discrimination, etc.
Root causes and examples
Quotation (repeated elsewhere because we are so fond of it):
||A man told his grandson: "A terrible fight is going on inside me -- a
fight between two wolves. One is evil, and represents hate, anger,
arrogance, intolerance, and superiority . The other is good, and represents
joy, peace, love, tolerance, understanding, humility, kindness, empathy,
generosity, and compassion. This same fight is going on inside you, inside
every other person too."
The grandson then asked: "Which wolf will win?" The old man replied
simply: "The one you feed." Anon.

Reports on oppression and hatred involving, at least in part, religion:
U.S. State Department's annual human rights reports: The Bureau
of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor of the U.S. Department of State
publishes Country human rights and religious freedom reports annually.
Sadly, although the reports catalog human rights abuses and victories in
over 175 countries, it neglects conditions within the U.S. itself. See:
