Delhi has been left reeling after February’s violence. Mobs swept through Muslim-majority parts of the capital killing dozens and injuring hundreds, with vehicles and property destroyed.

Protests erupted in Delhi over the Indian government’s new citizenship amendment law, which many Muslims say is discriminatory.
