MP terror stories

Unheard & Unspoken: Terror stories from Madhya Pradesh

Madhya Pradesh is one of the biggest states in India, also known as the heart of India. In recent years every major bomb blast linked to the Hindutva groups whether it is Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid or Malegaon, all of them have been traced back to the Malwa region (western part) of the state. But in spite of M.P. being the capital of Hindutva terrorism, state police and intelligence focus seem to be on Muslims. In this series we trace the lives of several Muslims youth and their families and how they have been made to suffer in the heartland of India- their stories largely unheard and unspoken, until now.
