Politics of Exclusion and Social Marginalization of Muslims in India: Case Study of Gujarat

Manasi Kumar

The paper offers a socio-psychological understanding of the phenomenon called ethnic riots and the various indigenous theories of violence discussed here suggest how complex and multidimensional human aggression and communal violence are.
