    • COMMUNAL CLASHES IN INDIA
    • introduction
      • Communal violence is among the bloodiest and most unfortunate blots on India’s history, and deserves very particular attention in the post-Independence era of a Constitutional secular democracy that promised equality and justice to all its citizens, irrespective of caste, creed or race. Why has this promise failed? It is true that, after over half a century of freedom, the frequency of communal rioting appears to be following a long-term declining trend.
    • Here are some pictures of some deadly riots in India..
      • This picture shows us the ground zero smoke pouring out from coach s-6 of Sabarmati express which was torched by a mob in Godhra on feb 27 th 2002.
      • 56 people, mostly hindus had died.
    • THE FIRE SPREAD
      • The VISHVA hindu parishad activists protested at Baroda railway station near Godhra on the same day as the news spread
