A BBC documentary citing findings of a UK inquiry has held Narendra Modi directly responsible for the anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat in 2002.

The documentary further revealed that the riots were a systematic campaign of violence that has all the hallmarks of ethnic cleansing.

According to the documentary, the UK inquiry team claimed that Modi had prevented the police from acting to stop violence targeted at Muslims and cited sources as saying Modi had specifically ordered authorities not to intervene.
