New Delhi: It’s been a year since the communal riots that ravaged northeast Delhi between 23 February and 25 February 2020. The riots killed at least 53 people — 38 Muslims and 15 Hindus — and drove a sharp wedge between the two communities.
The riots were said to have been triggered by a clash between supporters and opponents of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
Most of the shops, homes and other properties that were burnt or vandalised a year ago have since been rebuilt. While visiting the streets of northeast Delhi recently, ThePrint’s Manisha Mondal captured how people have come to terms with their lives.
