Religious inequalities refers to the ways in which individuals and groups suffer from systemic marginalisation, exclusion and, in extreme cases, genocide, on account of their beliefs and/or religious affiliation.

When it comes to being committed to challenging power relations of privilege and subordination in development studies and practice, many have laboriously studied the drivers, nature and impact of inequalities along the lines of gender, ethnicity, race and geography.
But when it comes to inequalities on account of religion, these are either merely given passing acknowledgement, presented as a by-product of other inequalities or sometimes ignored altogether.
If we are serious about Leave No One Behind, we need to find the moral fabric and the vision to form a concerted and organised collective in order to bring religious-based exclusions into our visions and implementation of inclusive development.
