Abstract:Findings from this study help to understand how Muslims and Hindus construe and interpret sexual VAW in contexts of inter-ethnic strife. Findings also identify specific attitudes that predict whether Muslims and Hindus diffuse responsibility to victims from their own community or the other community, and whether they hold their own community or the other community liable. Finally, results are also discussed in the current context of Muslim-Hindu climate in India.
