A report from the National Crime Records Bureau may make you sleepy. There has been an increase in the number of religious riots in the country as compared to the previous years. This has come to the fore in a survey by the National Crime Records Bureau. There is a large number of anti-religious elements in the country. Anti-social elements tried their best to spread anarchy in the country and they were successful too. If we look at the statistics, the cases of communal or religious riots in 2020 almost doubled from 2019. Even as people were locked inside their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic during the last one year in the country, the number of riots increased.
857 cases of communal or religious riots registered in the country
These figures can be frightening for the country. In fact, the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), which works under the Union Home Ministry, has released its annual report in which 857 cases of communal or religious riots were registered in the country in 2020. Even in the year 2019, so many cases of riots were not reported. The special thing is that in the year 2020, the country was battling the corona epidemic. People were instructed to stay indoors but still in such difficult times the number of riots increased in the country which is really surprising.

Most of the riots took place in the border area of Delhi.
Talking about the figures of previous years, in 2019, India had registered 438 such cases in states and union territories, while in 2018 this figure was 512. But in the year 2020, the cases increased to 857. Almost doubled. On this report, the National Crime Records Bureau said that the country was under complete lockdown from March 25, 2020 to May 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic (1st wave), during which movement in public places was very limited. In fact, religious riots had started in Delhi since January last year. During January and February, there were many protests and demonstrations in Northeast Delhi over citizenship laws and communal riots. For several months, people were sitting on a dharna on the Delhi border over the citizenship laws. After a lot of efforts, the government had stopped the protest demonstration.
