Gujarat state continues to be plagued by Hindu-Muslim violence and the likelihood of additional conflict is high. Curfews are in force in several areas of Ahmedabad and paramilitary police are on patrol. The violence has spread to the city of Akola in Maharashtra state, and tension remains high in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, where Hindus are pushing for construction to begin on a temple on the former site of a mosque. The government has blocked construction, but unrest could erupt at any time.
