Muslim Voices : Perceptions of Policing in India

Dec 20, 2018 03:53 PM IST India India

If there is one thing that is common across all states where Muslim and police interact is the constant presence of "multi-layered bias" against the community and attempts to display the "heroic charisma of majoritarian view" through display of religious symbols or views, reveals a new report.

Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, led by former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah and QUILL, released a 50-page report which points at the several layers of bias the Muslims in India feel at the hands of the police force.

From calling areas "mini Pakistan" to discriminating when they see a woman wearing a burqa or a hijab, several nuances were pointed out.
