Deadly sectarian riots spread in north India | News | DW.DE | 09.09.2013

The Indian state of Uttar Pradesh is seeing increasing tensions between Hindus and Muslims. Several people have been killed in riots, and the army has been deployed to quell the violence.
Police say at least 19 people have been killed since clashes broke out on Saturday between the Hindu and Muslim communities in villages in Muzaffarnagar district, about 125 kilometers (78 miles) north of the capital, New Delhi.
The violence was sparked by the killing of three Hindus on August 27. The three youths had reportedly tried to intervene in an incident in which a woman was being harassed.
The northern state was the scene of India's worst intercommunal clashes after a Hindu mob razed a 16th-century mosque in Ayodhya in 1992. At least 2,000 people are reported to have died in the ensuing violence.
Federal Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said on Saturday that sectarian violence was on the rise in India, which is predominantly Hindu. He said 451 incidents were reported in the first eight months of this year, compared with 410 for all of 2012.

This is what happens when you put 2 abusive, violent and totalitarian religions in the same area. Sectarian violence. 451 reported incidents this year alone. This is not counting the whole problem with the Kashmir region last month or so.
