New Delhi: The government would soon bring an anti-communal violence bill, Home Minister Sushulkumar Shinde said Monday after the proposed legislation was discussed at the National Integration Council meeting here.

"The bill was discussed... We will bring it soon," said Shinde.

"There were some corrections suggested," Shinde said about the bill that has been hanging fire for some years.

A group of Muslim leaders, who recently met the prime minister over communal violence incidents across India, had stressed the need for a bill to effectively deal with the issue.

The NIC meet came in the backdrop of the recent riots in Muzaffarnagar, in western Uttar Pradesh, in which over 40 people were killed and around 40,000 displaced.

Shinde said the riots were discussed during the NIC meet.
