Indian court finds 32 guilty in deadly Gujarat riots
Thursday 30 August 2012
A court convicted a former government minister and 31 other people for their part in the anti-Muslim riots that shook the western state of Gujarat 10 years ago.
More than 1,100 people, almost all Muslims, died when Hindu mobs rampaged through towns and villages after a train fire killed 60 Hindu pilgrims in February 2002. Hindu mobs, convinced Muslims began the fire, rampaged through towns and villages burning Muslim homes and businesses.
The state government, controlled by the Hindu right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party, was accused of not doing enough to stop the violence and even stoking it.
