Even though these riots are termed as Anti-Muslim, Anti-Sikh, or Food riots, still there were the lapses on the part of Government sides as the authorities could not put the strong measure to stop them. Somewhere the large scale violence occurred only because of the fault at the Government side. Even Supreme Court of India held the Uttar Pradesh Government inefficient to stop the Muzzaffarnagar Riots occurred in 2013; however, the Apex Court was wrong not to order the CBI/SIT inquiry in these riots.
