NBC News — At least seventy-seven people have been killed in ethnic clashes in southern India in less than a month, and sunday muslims in that area came together to demand justice. Hundreds of muslims staged protests in Bangalore, condemning the violence that is spreading and has now forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee to relief camps.
Authorities say the violence started on July 20th, when four youths were killed. Some local people suspected muslims were behind the killings and retaliated, and the fighting hasn't stopped.
