As the BJP celebrated the fourth anniversary of the Vasundhara Raje government in Rajasthan, the year 2017 will also be remembered for incidents of intolerance that stoked nationwide outrage. The peaceful state witnessed some of the most controversial and communal incidents of violence that started with the murder of Pehlu Khan by a mob of cow vigilantes, then the protests and threats against the makers of the Bollywood movie Padmavati, and most recently the gory, video-recorded murder of a migrant Muslim labourer in the name of love jihad.
