Muzaffarnagar last year saw her worst violence in which nearly four dozen Muslims were killed. Thousands of Muslims are afraid to return to their village. More than 100 riots happened in the Uttar Pradesh in just a year.
A fact-finding mission found the hands of BJP everywhere. Its leaders have been active in organising the panchayats and the mahapanchayats in the villages where hate speeches pushed the crowd to take revenge against the Muslims. Slogans against Muslims for killing cows mixed with slogans in support of Narendra Modi rent the air after the series of meetings and mahapanchayats in the villages.
