The tag of 'adarsh gaon' did not immunize Atali from larger processes of communalization at work in the country. Communal violence first broke out in Atali three months ago, in the aftermath of the riots there were sporadic incidents of violence, social boycott and tensions which finally spilled over into another major incident and drove the Muslim families out of the village. Peoples Union for Democratic Rights (PUDR) had visited Atali three times during this period, some of the findings will be shared during this discussion by members of the fact finding team.
All are cordially invited.
