If the total deaths has recently reached 800, I have not yet seen it.
The OP is probably referring to events surrounding the events related in this MSNBC story from the Google cache.
There are a few differences between the Indian situation and the Israeli/Occupied Territories situation:
For one thing, it is internal to a single country (i.e., there is no military component and there is no demand for independence or recognition as a state involved).
For another thing, the 544 deaths (800 if the OP is correct that the numbers have risen that high) involve people from both sides and the violence is scattered around. The largest single incident was the trigger riot in which 58 Hindus were killed in a train. The remaining deaths have been retaliatory attacks between the two sides or deaths from police suppressing the riots. There has been no evidence that either group is plotting to initiate or continue attacks with a purpose. It appears that all the attacks are spontaneous.
I am making no judgments, whatever, regarding the rightness of the actions in either the Mideast or India. It is, however, much easier to develop “moral outrage” against the actions of a coherent group of “freedom fighters”/“terrorists” or “national defenders”/“imperialist oppressors” than it is to work up the same moral outrage against scattered factional fighting.
(Some may actually see some latent racism, (or, at least, parochialism), in the idea that riot news is “just” more news from India.)
(There were similar riots nine years ago that did lead to around 800 deaths. I do not know whether they were divided proportionally between the Hindus and Muslims at that time or if they were primarily one group or the other.)
