Hundreds in northwest India protest against killing of Hindu man, defying ban on public gatherings

Global News published this video item, entitled “Hundreds in northwest India protest against killing of Hindu man, defying ban on public gatherings” – below is their description.

Hundreds of demonstrators in the Indian state of Rajasthan defied a police ban on public gatherings and marched in protest on Thursday, two days after two Muslims posted a video claiming responsibility for killing a Hindu tailor in the city of Udaipur.

Protesters in Udaipur waved saffron flags and chanted slogans demanding justice, while members of Indian right-wing Hindu nationalist organization burnt an effigy in Hyderabad, calling for the suspects to be publicly executed.

Two suspects were being interrogated by federal investigators on Wednesday, while state police were on guard against any unrest in the northwestern state. Fearing outbreaks of religious violence, police in Rajasthan banned public gatherings and suspended internet services.

India has a long history of religious violence, and thousands of people have been killed since the country became independent from British colonial rule in 1947.
