Muslims struggle after India riots

Culture & Society

Muslims continue to face discrimination and violence twelve years after communal riots ravaged India’s western state of Gujarat. An estimated 1,000 people died at the hands of Hindu mobs during the communal riots which started after the death of 60 Hindu pilgrims in a train fire, allegedly started by Muslims.

Please stop defaming India and its secular policies..Yes we agree that the riots were there but it was not only Muslims suffered..it was a shameful incident for the biggest Democratic state in the world. Let us deal with our problems and you please carry on with yours..which are in a much worse conditions.

What about the European attitude towards Muslims?

What of Muslims killing Muslims in Islamic states?

Hence please stay put and let us get over with what was more of a politically initiated disgrace and not personal.

Thank you very much
