STATEMENT TO HALT COMMUNAL VIOLENCE IN AHMEDABAD
26th May, 2010
The recent communal violence in Shapur and surrounding areas, of Ahmedabad city is a hard reminder that tensions continue to simmer between the two communities and can erupt for any flimsy reason.
We call upon those directly involved to stop this violence immediately and to help maintain peace and harmony. Above all, we request that nobody falls prey to the rumour mill.
We also call upon the police and other authorities to book all those responsible for this violence, and to ensure security and peace for all citizens of the city.
