Massacres reduce by 40% in India, election killings go down by 70%

Mass violence has been reducing in India for the last 2 decades, and this finding has been made in the latest report by BBC. The report mentions that the incidents of massacres have gone down by 40% and deaths in election crimes have reduced by 70%. Riots have also reduced in the country historically despite the large population. After 2002, no violence like the Gujarat riots took place in the country. But communal violence had taken place in Muzaffarnagar in 2013 and in Delhi in 2020, and 90 people had lost their lives in both.

Prior to 2002, the anti-Sikh riots had taken place in Delhi back in 1984, and in 1983, riots had taken place because of illegal immigrants in Assam, and more than 6000 people had lost their lives then. Between 2001 and 2020, 8, 749 people were killed in the country because of terrorist attacks, and after 2010, terrorist attacks started dwindling. Leaving out Kashmir, during the first decade of this century, between 2000 and 2010, terrorist attacks fell down from 71 to 21, which is a 70% reduction.

Between 1989 and 2019, violence in polling booths went down by 25%, and deaths related to election violence reduced by 70%. And this reduction took place when elections became more competitive, and the number of polling booths doubled. On the other hand, from 1970 to 1990, 15 passenger flights were hijacked, while in 1999, only 1 plane was hijacked which was coming from Kathmandu.
