Data for 1954 – 1985 are taken from the records of the Home Ministry of India. Later data are compiled by the California based India Research Center.
Muslim organizations, national media, and several human rights organizations have always disputed official figures. They say the number of persons killed in these riots is much higher than the figures reported by the government.

  1. To be fair you should give figures for non muslims as well.

    You should remember also that one can provoke an incident by a variety of means including murder.

    I find a lot of literature where Muslims portray themselves as victims. It seems to be completely ingrained propoganda. It sets up very nicely the concept of retaliatory action.

  2. It seems that Islam has spiraled out of some sense of decency. It is funny how India should marginalize its original culture for the sake of people who think that they have God’s ultimate message. Arrogance has presented itself as worldwide warfare. Many will say some sort of Jewish propaganda, but it doesn’t help when the counterattack is non-diplomatic.

    When you teach your children that your religion is the best thing that ever happened, your religion is a failure because it cannot self-critique.
