Following the recent outbreak of violence in the Indian state of Gujararat, leading to the loss of more than 900 lives, MEPs adopted a resolution strongly condemning all sectarian violence in India which followed the burning to death of 58 Hindus on a train earlier in the year. There is a call on the Indian government and the State government of Gujararat to continue investigations into the killings with a view to bringing those responsible to justice. The Commission and Council are requested to support the Indian government with relief programmes to the area.
