Modi calls for calm as Delhi riots kill 20

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for calm after Delhi's worst sectarian violence in decades left at least 20 people dead and calls for a military curfew.

The clashes, which also left almost 200 injured, were triggered by protests against a citizenship law seen by many critics as anti-Muslim and part of Modi's Hindu nationalist agenda.Delhi's chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, a political opponent, called for the army to be deployed and for a curfew to be imposed over the flashpoint areas.

Sunil Kumar, the director of the hospital where many of the wounded were taken, told AFP on Wednesday that almost 60 had gunshot injuries.Locals accused the police of doing nothing to help - or worse.Elsewhere a fire engine tried to put out blazes from the previous night, the air thick with smoke from still-smouldering cars, motorbikes, shops and homes.

The area is home to mostly poorer economic migrants living in many shanty neighbourhoods, and some fled on Wednesday ahead of more expected clashes.The unrest comes amid growing concerns at home and abroad about the direction of India and the future of its 200 million Muslims since Modi's Hindu nationalist BJP swept to a second term last year.

Since winning a second term, Modi's government has revoked the partial autonomy of Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state, and said it wants to conduct a nationwide citizens' register to weed out"infiltrators".In recent weeks sit-ins, mostly by women, have sprung up.
