Rabia Begum, 36, is grateful to not be counted among the 40,000 people who have fled their homes after communal violence ruptured this part of Western Uttar Pradesh just a few days ago. 48 people have been killed. While returning from the local market to her village one evening after curfew had been lifted, Rabia heard a baby crying. In the canal nearby, a little girl was being licked by dogs.
