As part of its dissemination activities, the Religions and Development research programme organized a seminar in Ahmedabad to discuss the research work completed by Professor Dipankar Gupta on the role of religious organizations in urban violent conflict and its aftermath. The research compared conflicts between Muslims and Hindus in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The purpose of the seminar was to share the findings with fellow academics, civil society activists, local opinion makers, and representatives and activists from the faith communities, some of whom had been victims of riots or directly affected by the violence. The seminar was attended by about 60 people from Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
