      Hindutva, often synonymous with "cultural nationalism," excludes other religious beliefs and fosters religious intolerance. This institutionalization manifested itself through the spread of anticonversion laws in some states, the rewriting of textbooks to favor Hindu extremist interpretations of history, and illegal surveys of Christians by police in some areas of Gujarat to collect statistical information not sought from other religious groups. In addition, Hindus distributed tridents or "trishuls" (a small sharp object which can cause bodily injury) in Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.

    • Abuse of the law in Gujarat: Muslims detained illegally in Ahmedabad
      Amnesty International Report, November 6, 2003
      Printer Friendly Version is available here.

      This document presents well-founded reports of the use of arbitrary and illegal detention by Crime Branch police in Ahmedabad in the past year. Evidence is also presented of the torture and ill-treatment of detainees. These human rights violations are being carried out in the context of a large number of arrests of individuals suspected of involvement in a range of alleged conspiracies against the state(1). These alleged conspiracies include the killing of 59 Hindus in Godhra in February 2002 (which sparked communal violence resulting in the deaths of over 2,000 Muslims in the following three months) and subsequent acts of violence which are alleged to have been planned and carried out in retaliation for the killing of Muslims (further information is provided in Section II of this report).
