Interview with Teesta Setalvad of Citizens for Justice and Peace, which is fighting for justice for the victims of the 2002 riots.

TEESTA SETALVAD is the co-editor of Communalism Combat and has been in the forefront of the fight against communal forces and in defence of human rights. Through her organisation Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP), she continues to fight a lonely legal battle against the Narendra Modi government in connection with the communal riots of 2002.
