This clip could be used as an introduction to an extended research project on religious people who have fought for their beliefs. Once the clip has finished, have a whole class discussion about when it is right to fight for your religious beliefs. Then present the students with a list of people who have fought for their beliefs or have been inspired by thier religious beliefs to fight (not necessarily using violence), such as Martin Luther King, Gandhi and so on. The students could pick two of the religious personalities and carry out an extended research project on their lives with a focus on how their religious beliefs inspired them to fight for what they believed in.
