Victims of Politics
It is unfortunate that due to vote-bank politics of the Uttar Pradesh government, people in Muzaffarnagar and towns and villages in its vicinity are suffering (“Caught in the Crossfire”, November 11). The cruel politics, apart from causing death and destruction, has lead to a breakdown in the trust and confidence that used to exist between people of different communities. Samajwadi Party’s Azam Khan is largely responsible for the riots, as he incited Muslims in name of Modi and Gujarat, and then forced the police into not taking any action against the rioters. The Supreme Court should order a thorough investigation into the riots and the investigative agencies should see to the fact that real culprits are brought to task, irrespective of their caste, religion or position.
