The Lesson of Gujarat

Feb 12, 2007 to Feb 18, 2007

Arvind Rajagopal, associate professor in the Department of Culture and Communication at New York University.

For seven months in early 2007, Hindu mobs ran wild in the state of Gujarat, assaulting Muslims in atrocities seeking to avenge an attack on Hindus in February of that year. There is strong evidence that prominent government leaders joined leading media outlets in encouraging the violence. At its conclusion more than 2000 Muslims where dead and the meaning of press responsibility in Indian democracy gained new relevance. Arvind Rajagopal explains the origin and legacy of the riots in Gujarat.
