    • By Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer,
    • The year 2009 also did not witness major riots and this pattern is continuing since Gujarat riots of 2002.
    • It is interesting to note that since Mumbai riots of 1992-93 there was no major communal riot until Gujarat riots in 2002
    • M.P. is another sensitive state since BJP has taken over. On 11th March communal violence broke out in Mahidpur of Ujjain district which has considerable Muslim population. Some Muslims returning after the Prophet Day’s procession were asked to avoid a route where Ramayana recitation was going on but they insisted on taking that route and communal violence broke out in which one person was killed and 17 persons were injured. The police had resorted to firing and one person was killed in police firing. About 24 persons were arrested.
