“Stop calling it “communal violence” when it’s clear that it’s anti-Muslim violence. Don’t call it a “riot” because it’s actually a state-engineered pogrom. Stop using vague words like “scuffle between two groups” when the evidence points to a hate crime. Don’t just call it “mob violence” because the mob enjoys institutional impunity from state agencies.”
