Reuters investigates religious riots in Indian village

Reuters reporters recently visited the northern Indian village of Nayabans where two people were killed during a riot by Hindu activists after they discovered that cows, which are sacred to the community, were being slaughtered. Conversations with Hindus and Muslims revealed that the divide between the communities has deepened after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party came to power at the national level in 2014 and in Uttar Pradesh in 2017. Tensions are now ratcheting up ahead of the next general election, due to be held by May.
