RTI Reveals that Minorities are much more safer under Narendra Modi regime than the 10 years of UPA rule

The Congress and Opposition have always attacked PM Modi Government for not treating the minority’s right. The parties have always portrayed Prime Minister Modi and BJP as Hindutav Party and alleged that all the moves taken by PM Modi and his Government are not in favour of Minorities.

But this is not true at all. Since the time PM Modi has come to power he has worked equally for all the sections of society.Even the RTI has also revealed that Minorities are much safer under Modi era than the 10 years of UPA regime, reported MyNation

According to the Union home ministry’s reply to an RTI query on communal riots in India between 2004 and 2017, the NDA regime fared better on all counts, such as the number of incidents of communal violence, number of people killed and those injured

While India recorded 10,399 incidents of communal violence from 2004 to 2017 in which 1,605 people were killed and 30,723 injured, 3,858 incidents occurred between 2004 and 2008, a period that roughly coincided with the tenure of the UPA-1.

In the five years between 2009 and 2013, roughly corresponding to the time of the UPA-2, there were 3,621 communal riots.However, from 2014 to 2017, India witnessed a lesser number of riots: 2,920 to be precise.

Also, the three years when incidents of communal violence peaked were when the UPA was in power. While the maximum of 943 incidents was recorded in 2008, another 849 were recorded in the following year. In 2013, 823 communal riots took place.

On the account of no of people killed in communal rights the current NDA fares better even when compared to the NDA-1, UPA-1 and UPA-2 regimes.The UPA earns a dubious distinction when it comes to the average number of people killed in incidents of communal violence during its tenure from 2004-2014.

While 1,216 people were killed every year between 2004 and 2013, that number fell to 97.25 a year under the Modi government. The highest number of people killed in communal flare-ups in a single year was also when the UPA was in power. According to Government data, 167 people were killed in 2008, which remains the highest, followed by 134 in 2004 and 133 in 2013

In fact after the Modi Government has come to power, there has been a downward trend in the number of people killed in communal riots.This RTI was filed by Noida-based IT Professional and activist Amit Gupta. The reply of it clearly reveals minorities are safe under Modi regime.
