Pakistan, Hindu-Muslim riot
Records of Hindu-Muslim riots are available since first decades of 18th century. But those riots were mainly based on contradictory behavior of the religions of the two committees. At the beginning of the 20th century it took a new turn due to the intervention of a third vested interest of divide and rule. Speciallly when Govt. of India granted 14 lakhs of Ruppees to the Nawab of Dhaka at a very low rate of interest.Two districts Mymensing and Comilla were worst affected by riots.
Beginning with year 1920 there occurred in that year in Malabar what is known as the Mopla Rebellion. But what baffled most was the treatment of accorded by the Moplas upon the Hindus. The number of those who were killed, wounded or converted are not known.In 1925-26 the antagonism between the Hindus and the Muslims became widespread.A deplorable condition was started in Calcutta.there were 44 deaths and 584 injured.
