Communal Violence Bill


To respect, protect and fulfill the right to equality before law and equal protection of law by
imposing duties on the Central Government and the State Governments, to exercise their
powers in an impartial and non-discriminatory manner to prevent and control targeted
violence, including mass violence, against Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and religious
minorities in any State in the Union of India, and linguistic minorities in any State in the
Union of India; to thereby uphold secular democracy; to help secure fair and equal access to
justice and protection to these vulnerable groups through effective provisions for
investigation, prosecution and trial of offences under the Act; to provide for restorative relief
and reparation, including rehabilitation and compensation to all persons affected by
communal and targeted violence; and for matters connected herewith and incidental thereto.
