About the Book

Searching for survivors amongthe blood-soaked bodies strewnaround the canal and betweenthe ravines near Makanpurvillage, on the Delhi-Ghaziabadborder, on the night of 22 May1987, with just a dim torchlight-the memories are still fresh inVibhuti Narain Rai's mind. Onthat fateful night, when Rai firstheard about the killing, he couldnot believe the news was trueuntil he, along with the districtmagistrate and a few otherofficials, went to Hindon canal.He quickly realized that all ofthem had become witnesses tosecular India's most shamefuland horrendous incident-personnel of the ProvincialArmed Constabulary (PAC) hadrounded up dozens of Muslimsfrom riot-torn Meerut and hadkilled them in cold blood in Rai'sarea of jurisdiction. Offering ablow-by-blow account of themassacre and its aftermath,Hashimpura is a screamingnarrative of the barbaric use ofstate force and the spinelesspolitics in post-IndependentIndia.
