The article "Incidents of Genocide in Independent India" jots down the incidents of Genocide in India from the date of independence till date. India witnessed the first genocide at the time of partition immediately after the independence. The two-nation theory led to the division of the country and the Hindus in India and Muslims in Bengal migrated to their destined homelands. In this process several lives were lost on both sides and women were kidnapped and raped and at times murdered. Kashmir is an unending and unresolved problem between both the nations. Razakar movement in the State of Hyderabad, the Mumbair riots, the annihilation of Sikhs after the assassination of Mrs. Gandhi and Godhra incidents are elaborately discussed. The author suggests for a strong domestic law to safeguard the unity in diversity of India .
