Description of Forms Of Collective Violence Riots, Pogroms, And Genocide In Modern India


These essays focus on the various forms of collective violence that have
occurred in India during the past six decades, which include riots,
pogroms, and genocide. It is argued that these various forms of violence
must be understood not as spontaneous outbreaks of passion, but as
productions by organized groups. Moreover, it is also evident that
government and its agents do not always act to control violence, but
often engage in or permit gratuitous acts of violence against particular
groups under the cover of the imperative of restoring order, peace, and
tranquility. This has certainly been the case in numerous incidents of
collective violence in India where curfew restrictions have been used for
just such purposes. In this context, secularism constitutes a countervailing
practice, and a set of values that are essential to maintain balance in a
plural society where the organization of intergroup violence is endemic,
persistent, and deadly.
