You are Lucky. You Havent Met Horror.

Today is 7 April - The Day of Remembering the Genocide in Rwanda

Despite, the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, which defines genocide as an act committed to destroy a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, it took place in Rwanda.

In 1994, genocide or systematic killing, started against the Tutsi, Hutus and others in Rwanda. The fight between the ethnic groups residing in Rwanda is very old.
Tutsis were considered superior than other ethnic groups, were given jobs and other facilities. This led to resentment amongst the Hutus.

The Tutsis blamed the Hutu leader and his rebel group for carrying out extremist plans of exterminating Tutsi population. Conversely, the Tutsis were blamed for trying to take over the Hutu Community.

Make 7 April each year to remember their torture and killing. It should teach us not to repeat such atrocity.
