At Least 24 Killed in India After Hindu Nationalists Attack Muslim Demonstrators

HeadlineFeb 26, 2020

In India, the death toll from religiously-motivated violence in Delhi has risen to 24, with police accused of turning a blind eye to assaults on Muslims committed by Hindu nationalist mobs. On Tuesday, assailants set fire to a mosque, while attackers used iron bars, rocks and pickaxes to attack Muslims protesting against Hindu nationalist Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi’s new citizenship law, which widely restricts Muslim immigration to India. This comes as Modi himself has been accused of sanctioning the massacre of more than 2,000 Muslims in 2002, when he was chief minister of the state of Gujarat.
