Mankind has suffered a lot over the years from dramatic climatic conditions, landslides, earthquakes, etc., but none of them is comparable to a genocide. People killing people in masses, just for the sake of proving a point or for their own gain has happened a lot in the last 500 years. Lets take a look at the six worst genocides in history of mankind.Genocides are politically motivated generally speaking, Rwanda is a classic example where it was the result of tribal in-discrimination. The short mass killing spree resulted in 6,00,000 and 10,00,000 dead and was the climax of long-standing ethnic tension and competition between the majority Hutus and minority Tutsis.Supposedly the Tutsi had control over Rwanda for centuries dominating with their powerful position over the Hutu majority until they had been over thrown in the Hutu rebellion of 1962. Tension between the two tribal communities remained high and eventually escalated into war when in April 1994, HutuPresident Juvénal Habyarimana died under suspicious circumstances in a plane crash. This resulted in bloody reprisals by Hutus against their Tutsi neighbors in retaliatory attacks.
