Deaths of the Haemoclysm, by religion

Parrotline has run the numbers of the death tolls of the various wars in the 20th-Century haemoclysm, separating them by religious affiliation. World War II is, quite wisely, listed separately because it's a complex event and separating out all the religious affiliations involved is going to take the scholars until Doomsday. Numbers are shown for deaths in 20th/21st-century wars by religious affiliation of warring parties and deaths in worst 20th/21st-century genocides by religious affiliation of killers and victims. The final scorecard:

Wars involving European-Christians and Asian Buddhists (incl. WWII) have killed 154.8 million people in the past century. Wars involving Muslims (incl. WWII) have killed 25.6 million people in the past century.

Major genocides & atrocities committed by European-Christians and Asian Buddhists have killed 84.0 million people in the past century. Major genocides & atrocities committed by Muslims have killed 3.5 million people in the past century.
