Genocides

History of mankind is fascinating, today I started to getting some news on Rwanda Genocides. I started digging bit more into it out of curiosity.

Over 6 Lac Tutsis were killed by Hutus in Rwanda. 600K was huge number & it led me to do some more research about list of genocides.

All Indian Readers of this post must not miss to check Eastern Pakistan Genocide / Bangladesh. I am still unsure why this is not part of our history books as it has impact on how we deal with Pakistan & Bangladesh as a citizen of India.
