In India, activists and citizens are raising alarm over deletion of Muslim voters’ names from electoral rolls in several states.

In Gujarat’s Devbhumi Dwarka district, approximately seven hundred fishermen, predominantly Muslims, found their names removed from the electoral rolls.

Similar grievances surfaced in Sitapur Uttar Pradesh, where the entire Muslim locality of Mahmudabad village’s Meera Nagar reportedly vanished from the voter’s list.
