On February 27, 2002, a train coming from Ayodhya with Hindu pilgrims was set ablaze by a Muslim mob in Godhra, Gujarat. The incident killed at least 58 Hindu pilgrims. The next day, a Hindu mob set out and blamed Muslims for the death of the pilgrims which resulted in widespread communal riots.

As many as 1,000 people, mostly Muslim were killed in the riots. At least 20,000 Muslim homes were destroyed and 150,000 people were displaced during the riots.

During the anti-Muslim violence, Narendra Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat and the Supreme Court had ruled out that there was not enough evidence to charge him for the violence that erupted in the state.
