BRADFORD, ENGLAND, June 14, 2001: Allegations that Hindu families are being driven out of their homes by young Muslims have been disputed by local community leaders. Police have confirmed they are aware that tensions between some members of the two communities exist. A local Vishwa Hindu Parishad trustee, whose pharmacy was allegedly firebombed, believes that Muslims have undertaken a systematic ethnic cleansing, citing a 90% reduction of the area's Hindu population over the last 10 years. Muslim leaders have strongly denied that attempts have been made to exclude Hindus from some areas of the city, saying such behavior would not be tolerated. (See following report also.)
