While the BJP has slammed the Vishnu Sahai Commission, which has reportedly blamed the 2013 Muzaffarnagar on politicians and the local administration, riot victims have hailed the findings and said the panel was right in indicting politicians.
While the findings of the report have not been made public, Saleem Shahpur, a witness, said, “I read that the report blamed the riots on politicians. I agree with it.There was a clear political character to that procession, after which there was an incident of stoning of a mosque where a young boy died.
