Andy Rocchelli was shooting in the northern area of India focusing on the increasing tension between muslim and hindu communities, documenting the new wave of islamic extremism which already killed more than 400 people in civil blasts since summer 2008. He has been photographing the muslim neighborhoods and families of the people involved in blasts. The muslim enclave of Azamgarh, Saraimir and Sanjarpur is the birthplace of the young students suspected members of Indian Mujahedeen, two of those where shot by the Police anti terrorism special cell during the encounter in Bathla house neighborhood, Delhi. The corruption of indian political class and the misleading acting of the national and international medias, are polluting the fragile equilibrium between the communities, fueling the hate.
