Khaki and Ethnic Violence in India : Armed Forces, Police and Paramilitary During Communal Riots written by Omar Khalidi in Malayalam translated by M P Sadasivan. Communal and ethnic violence has always played a major role in the history of India. That there might be a link between such violence and the ethnic composition of our armed and police forces has been mostly overlooked in the past.
Omar Khalidi suggests that the ethno-religious composition of the forces gave birth to communal feelings at times. Although delegated the responsibility of maintaining peace and harmony, the forces suffered from communal bias and hence at times were used by the state as an instrument of legitimate coercion.
