Th is articles seeks to understand the inﬂ uence of 9/11 on inter- and intra religious tensions Indonesia. A three level research method will be used (narrative/biography — date/place — theory) and three analytical tools to understand group- violence will be introduced (Volkan’s hot place, Girard’s cycle of vengeance and strategies of dehumanization) in order to comprehend religion-related violence in Indonesia as an attempt to get rid of the other’s ‘evil mind’. Th e presumption of the evil mind after 9/11 is embedded into a global network of vengeance, continually disseminating images of suﬀ ering and pain around the globe and — as such — constantly preceding another atrocity. Religion-related violence, troubling Indonesia since 1997, is a highly interesting example of the expulsion of the other’s presumed evil mind.
