“The politics of denying genocide continues. Delhi Police is refusing to release dead bodies from mortuaries. Bodies are lying in burnt buildings and in drains; Delhi Police is preventing these from being collected and identified. This is being done to give a thoroughly distorted number of deaths.

Also, as in all other cases of genocide, “official numbers” are not to be believed. We can never know the “actual number” of deaths. Such is the nature of genocide.”
