In Indian capital, death toll in anti-Muslim violence has risen to 27 and more than two hundred people have been injured in the violence.

The clashes first broke out on Sunday between protesters for and against a controversial citizenship law. Delhi remains on edge after three nights of rioting, with reports of Muslim homes and shops being targeted by violent mobs.

India’s main opposition Congress party has demanded the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah and blamed him for the violence.

Meanwhile, The United Nations has expressed concern over the deadly clashes between Hindus and Muslims in Indian capital New Delhi.

At the regular briefing at UN Headquarters in New York, Secretary-General’s Spokesman, Stephane Dujarric underscored the need for the Indian forces to show restraint and allow the protestors to demonstrate peacefully.
