India to probe police failure in anti-Muslim riots
Wed Feb 8, 2006 8:18 PM IST

AHMEDABAD, India (Reuters) - Indian police said on Wednesday they would investigate more than 40 officers for failing to adequately investigate cases relating to 2002 riots in the western state of Gujarat which killed hundreds of Muslims.

A top state official said charges of improper investigation leading to the acquittal of several prime accused and the premature closure of cases would be examined.

"This is the first time we will initiate a departmental inquiry against investigating officers who failed to carry on the probe of riot cases," state police chief A.K. Bhargava said.

Human rights groups say about 2,500 people - mostly Muslims - were killed in some of the worst rioting in India since independence, but official estimates put the figure at more than 1,000.

The riots erupted after 59 Hindus were burnt to death in a train compartment by a suspected Muslim mob.


The state's police force and its government have come under severe criticism from human rights groups for aiding and abetting the riots and later scuttling attempts to bring the guilty to justice.

In it's bid to become a civilized nation, India seems to have quite a few hurdles to overcome.

31 arrested after rare religious clashes in India’s Ladakh region

10 February 2006

SRINAGAR, India - Police arrested 31 people on Friday following clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in India’s northern Ladakh region, an official said.

Seven policemen were injured in street battles with the rioters Thursday, Inspector-General of Police K. Rajendra Kumar told The Associated Press by telephone. He said two homes belonging to Muslim residents were burned down.

The clashes in Buddhist-majority Ladakh began Monday when Muslims alleged that activists of the Ladakh Buddhist Association forced their way into a mosque in the region’s Kargil town and desecrated copies of the Quran, the Muslim holy book. The group denied the allegation.
india has a big population and Religion is a very big thing in india , so even though india has the largest number of middle class people in the world , it still has a lot of people who are not educated ,

there are many more problems india faces ,to become a developed nation , But still it will get there , cuz these problems are not new , these things happen every 10 years or so in india , and we have managed to live with it .
I figure the best tool for riot control is a .50 cal machine gun.
I am noticing that of all the rioting countries I hear nothing about Afganistan or Iraq. (People are hesitant to throw rocks at a tank.)

Yeah, if they're Brittish tanks, they'll get dragged into the tank and have the crap beaten out of them.
