Calling the Muzaffarnagar riots “very sad”, PM Manmohan Singh on Friday said only a very small group of people was responsible for creating communal trouble and asked the vast majority to resist such forces. The appeal came at a function to present the national communal harmony awards to Khamliana and Md Abdul Bari and the foundation for amity and national solidarity.

President Pranab Mukherjee stressed on individuals in keeping harmony. “Why is it that we do not learn the lessons from our own history but keep repeating the same tragic mistakes?” he asked.
