Benaras Rocked by Communal Violence

Abstract

The claim of the BJP government in UP that communal peace is the norm under its rule has been proved hollow not merely by the fact that Benaras city was rocked by communal violence in November 1991. The active role of the BJP-VHP combine is evident in the upsurge of Hindu-Muslim hatred in the city in early November.
