Ethiopia is a unique country in the world where christians and muslims live together respectfully each other for long period of time. There are strong social values that keep the society to have tight social relationship particularly between christians and muslims.But the situation is slightly changing. Global extremist ideology is passing to some young muslim extremists. In the past two decades, south western part of the country christians life is seriously affecting by extreme muslims in some time intervals. Over forty million christians are living in Ethiopia in different part of the country. This number will bring the land with the highest number of christians population both in the middle east and the horn of Africa.
