The Kokrajhar riots have brought death and destruction to Assam. They have also created political fissures in the state politics, reports
EVEN BEFORE the Assam violence has subsided fully, it has had a spill over effect in other parts of the country. On 11 August, a rally organised by Muslim organisations in Mumbai, against the Assam riots, spiralled out of control, leaving two dead and several injured. Similar violent incidents have been reported from other parts of the country.
On her visit to Muslim relief camps in Dhubri district, Congress president Sonia Gandhi admitted that the “victims can only return after the situation calms down”.
