Gujarat Riots: The True Story

The Truth of the 2002 riots

The Godhra Carnage

Difference between Godhra and other tragic incidents

Several people- unable to understand the sufferings of the Hindu society- have asked- “Why did riots occur only after Godhra? Why was nobody targeted after the Akshardham temple attack- or after the attacks on Mumbai on 26 November 2008?” Well- the answers are many.

Myth 1: 2,000 Muslims were killed in the Gujarat riots

Posted on May 22, 2008 - Filed Under 12-Concocted Lies and Myths by the media | 691 Comments

 Fact: 2000 is the number of Muslims who roasted to coal 59 Ram sevaks in Godhra, including 25 women and 15 children (including babies and toddlers), on 27 February 2002, not the number of Muslims killed in the subsequent Gujarat riots.

    As per figures given by the then Union Minister of State for Home Shriprakash Jaiswal, who belongs to the Congress Party, in Parliament on 11 May 2005, 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus were killed in the riots, 2548 people were injured and 223 people were missing. This was in a WRITTEN REPLY (meaning the UPA Government was fully aware of what it was doing) to a question asked by a Congress member (that Congress member was Babri Masjid Action Committee lawyer R K Anand) on the religion wise casualties in riots in Gujarat after Godhra. The report placed the number of riot-affected widows at 919 and the number of children orphaned at 606. The UPA government gives these figures, and hence they themselves could be inflated.

Even Indian Muslims’ English newspaper Milli Gazette also reported this

http://www.milligazette.com/Archives/2005/01-15June05-Print-Edition/011506200511.htm

BBC too reported the same.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/4536199.stm

The editorials of the national English dailies, and the articles published from the freelancers on the newspapers’ editorial pages are nothing but a pack of lies, akin the autobiography of former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf, “In the Line of Fire”. Newspapers like The Times of India, The Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, etc. continue to publish articles saying, “Win in Assembly elections of December 2002 does not whitewash Narendra Modi’s sins of the Gujarat pogrom of 2002 when 2000 innocent Muslims were butchered” or “The Gujarat pogrom of killing thousands of Muslims did not help the BJP in the long term” etc. etc.

But these numbers are nothing but a pack of lies. Let us see the interview given by the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to Aaj Tak’s Prabhu Chawla, excerpts of which were published in the weekly India Today, dated 4 November 2002:

“Q – Your opponents call you ‘Jinnah of the Hindus’.

A- I am hearing this for the first time though I still don’t consider you as an enemy.

Q- You are held responsible for the killing of 1,100 innocent people in the riots.

A- In our last interview, you said 900 people. Now you are saying 1,100. Are you adding all the people killed in other states like Maharashtra and Bengal to Gujarat’s account?(Narendra Modi is talking of the Solapur riots of 10 and 11 October 2002 in Maharashtra and other petty riots which occured long after Godhra and had nothing to do with Godhra and post-Godhra).

Q- So what is the correct toll?

A- There would have no riots in Gujarat if there had been no Godhra…

Q- Do you accept that you failed to provide security to the people of the state?

A- 98% of Gujarat would not have had peace if we had failed to fulfill our duties. We managed to control the riots in 72 hours…

Q- Why don’t you accept that Gujarat is being defamed because of Narendra Modi?

A- If that is true, give the people of Gujarat a chance to pronounce their verdict through elections.”

LINK:  http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/communal-riots-in-gujarat-were-unfortunate-narendra-modi/1/218781.html

As we see, the number of people killed in the riots jumped from 900 to 1100 after Narendra Modi’s previous interview, i.e. within 4 months! Now it has jumped from 900 to 2,000. May be after 10 years, at this rate it will jump to 10,000!Already it is being said that, “thousands of Muslims were killed in Gujarat” and “3,000 innocent Muslims were butchered in Gujarat”. The death of a single innocent person, whether Hindu or Muslim or belonging to any other religion, is highly unfortunate and cannot be justified. That more than 1,000 people were killed is highly unfortunate and reprehensible. But that cannot a justification to exaggerate and inflate the number of people killed to 2,000 or any higher figure.

   That the UPA government, with Congress President and Italian-born and staunchly anti-BJP Sonia Gandhi as the UPA chief, and Communists as outside supporters, gave the figure of 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus killed in the Gujarat riots inside Parliament is something worth pondering about. These figures themselves may well be exaggerated given as they are by a Congressman, who worked under Sonia Gandhi.

  India Today weekly reported in its issue dated 20 May 2002, when the riots had almost stopped that “Total dead- 972” (For details, see page 122). Out of these 972, India Today included 57 people killed in Godhra, so the death toll post-Godhra was 915. If anyone sees the English newspapers of those days, i.e. between 10 to 21 May 2002, no riots took place in Gujarat in those 10 days at all, and the Army left Gujarat on 21 May. A maximum of 20 more deaths might have happened in Gujarat after that. The death toll in Gujarat riots would thus be 935.

   The Tribune reported on 30 April 2002 that the death toll crossed the 900 mark on 29 April. The riots had almost ended by that time and maximum 50 more would have been killed by 10 May 2002.And this was 2 months after the real violence of 28 Feb, 1st and 2nd March had ended, most of the bodies of the killings of these days had been found by 30 April.

  Thus there is no way at all that the toll could be anywhere close to 2,000. The 950-odd toll was exaggerated and inflated to 2000 by the liars some months after the riots. When riots ended, the final toll was 952, by which time most bodies of the earlier riots of February 28, 1 March and 2 March had been found.

  Central India’s English daily The Hitavada also reported that 936 people were killed in the Gujarat riots after the Army left Ahmedabad on 21 May 2002. The official figures before the missing were declared dead were 952. After 7 years, missing were declared dead- the toll was revised to 1180 by The Telegraph, which did not consider the missing people found (either found alive or dead) and simply added 228 to 952 to make it 1180.

http://www.telegraphindia.com/1090301/jsp/nation/story_10608005.jsp

Let us, for argument’s sake, assume that the figures given by the UPA government are correct. Does that give anyone the reason to believe that more than 790 Muslims were killed in Gujarat? Why should the English dailies and the 24-hour news channels lie through the skin of their teeth that 2000 Muslims were killed in Gujarat?

Actually, the figures given initially said 228 people missing (closely matched by the UPA Government also saying 223 people missing in Parliament on 11 May 2005) and later 101 people were found alive, so the final missing people’s figure is 127 only. The official statistics show that 101 people were found alive and 127 people are still missing and hence assumed dead after the 7-year period is over. Ex-gratia was paid to 1,169 people by the Gujarat Government. The UPA Government also paid extra compensation to Gujarat riot victims in May 2008 in a special package in the final year of its first term. Even this UPA Government said ex-gratia was paid to 1169 people.

   This shows that the death toll is less than or equal to 1169 since it is absolutely impossible that the UPA Government will fail to give ex-gratia to families of people killed in the riots when the riots have been politicized so much, and when it attacked Narendra Modi on this issue so much, and when its leaders spread huge lies on the riots with exaggerations. (And if the UPA, which is a staunch opponent of Narendra Modi claims that any more than 1169 people were killed in the riots, then it itself would be admitting that it did not pay compensation to some killed people’s families!) UPA’s figures in Parliament would amount to 1171 deaths- 790 Muslims, 254 Hindus and 127 missing people (after many missing were found alive), 790+254+127= 1171. This closely matches the ex-gratia figure of 1169, paid by both the Gujarat and the UPA Government.

  Despite this NDTV reported many times during the Lok Sabha elections of April- May 2004 that, “2000 Muslims were killed in Gujarat” exaggerating and as if not a single Hindu was killed and implying that the riots were one-sided.

  2,000 is the number of Muslims who carried out the massacre and gruesome roasting alive of 59 Hindus-including 25 women and 15 children in Godhra. It is not the number of Muslims who were killed in the subsequent riots. There is no justification for violence and of even a single death, be it in Godhra or after Godhra. But why lie? Who gains by these lies? And it is everybody’s duty to correct the figure. The point is, what should be reported is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

   And it is this mentality which is responsible for them exaggerating the number of Muslims killed in the riots to as much as possible. When the total number of people killed in the riots- Hindu as well as Muslim- is 1,169, they lie that 2,000 Muslims were killed in the riots just like former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf did in the United Nations in September 2002. Teesta Setalvad increased this number to 2,500 Muslims (as if not a single Hindu was killed) in one of her articles titled What ails Gujarat” published in CPI(M) party weekly Peoples Democracy in its issue of 16 July 2006. And Tehelka reported in 2007 after its sting operation that 2,500 Muslims were killed in the first 3 days! This would imply that many more were killed in the next days of riots!!!

A must read article is on the role of the Gujarat Government in controlling violence in the riots.

Some more details are given in the book. To know the details, read the book.

    “Regarding Vande Mataram issue, you see India as black and white. You, and others like you do not want to recognise that India is diverse, pluralist nation. Muslims worship Allah alone,”

    This is what you quoted, then why is it that in Saudi and all you Islamist Countries, that we do not see your own people allowing us to follow our own religion. Why is it that in Islamistic countries, that we are stopped from exercising our own religion. Show me a single temple in your most favored place “The Hub of Islamic Terrorists”

    Why do you expect us to follow your shit rituals in your Islamic hubs, I have seen in Saudi Arabia, “the hub of Islamic Terrorism” that a non-muslim is not allowed to have even a glass of water during your Ramadan period. Its your Ramadan, not our, but why do you try to thrust your beliefs on us.

    Why don’t you guys do it, when we fast. When we fast, you should not be drinking or eating any shit. Why don’t you guys keep away from the whole food fiasco in Hindustan, like they make us non-muslims do it in your Islamic Hubs.

    If you want to live in India, live like an Indian. Be an Indian First, not a Fidayeen. Learn to be a person, before being a fundamentalist.

    There is a lot to tell you, but I know a person like you, so filled till the brim with the scum of the “Big I” cannot take it.

    I know that you are going to reply to this, but before doing it, make sure that you put on those shit reading glasses of your’s and then reply. Also make sure that you do not cut down your Ramadan time of gorging down food from the late evening till the wee hours of morning, in order to reply to this. You can reply it once you fill your tummy till the brim that you do not have even an inch left inside.

    “If we give away the babri masjid to our hindu brothers, but then there is new issue about Mathura,Taj Mahal….”

    Oh! you seem to be living in a world of dreams as shown to you by your mulla’s at the Madarsa’s that you people are fit to study in. You are only taught what is wrong and never ever, what is right.

    Who do you think you are, when you use the term “If we give away the babri….”

    Don’t you know or haven’t your goat bearded mulla’s tell you that Babri Masjid was never ever there earlier. It was, is and will always be RAM JANAMBHOOMI.

    You loitered, stole and did every thing unthinkable of in India.

    Who gave you that damn right to destroy our temples and construct your Masjid’s and Madarsa’s, so that you can train and produce more terrorists?

    RAM JANAMBHOOMI was, is and will always be RAM JANAMBHOOMI.

    And you yourself, went ahead and added Mathura and Taj Mahal to the list. This does prove that you know the fact and do accept to the fact that Mathura and Taj Mahal are of real significance to Hinduism. You accept yourself that Taj Mahal is not what is portrayed in your books to be, it is “TEJ-O-MAHALAYA”, got time Google it. You guys know very well how to google, ‘cos you always google for terms like “How To Make A Bomb?”, “How to be a Jihadi?” and what not shit….

    Come on search for it, if you are unable to do it, then let me know… I will pass on the link.

    Get on with your stuff Aquil, search on google and you will see the list of temples/places of worship of Hindus that your people have destructed till now.

    You’ve plundered us for centuries, but we never said no, ‘cos we know that the real wealth of Hindustan was not the materialistic things, what you plunder for, then real wealth of Hindustan is Hinduism and none of you Islamic terrorists can steal it from us.

    Dear Munaf & Dear Aquil,

    There is very little represtation of muslims in politcal circles, because you think CONGRESS, SAMAJWADI PARTY, RASTRIYA JANATA DAL, etc are secular, whereas the truth lies elsewhere.

    If Muslims are in jail, then Hindus have suffered too, due to the same reasons
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7275351.stm

    If we wouldn’t have felt the pain, then we would have taken up oath & swords to wipe out muslims for the massacred they have done from Afghanistan (the land of Gandhari in Mahabarata) to Bangladesh) that land of Bakim Chandra Chatterjee in the last 1000 years. Hindus are for dialogue and HINDUTVA BRIGADE DOES NOT WANT THIS COUNTRY TO BE A HINDU NATION, BUT A NATION WHERE THERE IS NO MINORITY APPEASEMENT.

    I told you this website has come up only to BUST the MYTHS created by the pseudo-secular media. Check the credentials of Teesta (check- POLITICAL VIEWS AND AFFILIATIONS), who is a biased journalist, I can supply you the names of dozen more.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teesta_Setalvad

    And the report you have mentioned by Luke Harding, mentions that 2000 people were
    killed, which is another myth, this website has busted. I know Gujrat riots should not have occurred, but why are you people not ready to introspect and just keep on accusing MODI, whereas you people need to stand up against parties like Congress governemt, which has kept you people down for the last 60 years, people like Laloo, Mulayam (who are pseudo-seculars), who are supporting organisations like SIMI and harming muslims intersts more, than MODI who is for inclusive growth. Just see
    http://www.ndtv.com/convergence/ndtv/story.aspx?id=NEWEN20070034393&ch=11/30/2007%208:27:00%20AM

    If you really believe in the law of the land, preach to all, to believe in it and not people saying there is SOME CONSPIRACY AGAINST MUSLIMS.

    Why is it that only muslims cry of discrimination and not other communities. Because they are not ready to assimilate. As I said the Deobandis issued a fatwa against terrorism, only after the OIC issued one, and you want me to believe they are nationalist first. First remove the anti-national elements from your community and then we hindus shall be there to protect you from anybody calling you Pakistani. First INTROSPECT & REMOVE THE VICTIM MENTALITY.

    You have said about education. At the start of the last century, majority of both Hindus and Muslims were not knowing English, or didn’t go to convent schools, but we were ready for change, we were ready to educate our sisiters and daughters. That is why we are seeing such a wide disparity today. Our women are working women, and they contribute to our economic growth.

    Till you don’t introspect and remove the victim mentality, the community as a whole will never make progress. And sensitivity is to respect the practices of other religions and not oppose them.

    Once again go through all the COMMENTS that have been posted and YOU will see the NEED TO INTROSPECT.

    Dhiraj

    For Muslims, “Country” is in this world only whereas religion is both in this world and in the hereafter. That does not mean to say that our social resposibilities of living in a “country” is to be ignored. Islam lays out clear responsibilities on its followers but one should not blame the whole communty for the actions of the few.

    Islam does not say that if you are an Indian that you have to support Pakistan. However, you must be aware of the ground reality. When Muslims are told time and time again to go to Pakistan and when they are are not taken as being part of the Indian community then some young people rebel out of frustration. If you want to see a positive outcome then don’t make Muslims feel like outsiders. They are more Indian than you are. Lets not forget he Aryan race is said to have its origins in Germany.

    Lack of proper education and insesitivity t others feelings is a major contributory factor.

    Gujarat’s Muslim heritage smashed in riots…
    Luke Harding in New Delhi
    The Guardian, Saturday June 29 2002 Article history

    Two hundred and thirty unique Islamic monuments, including an exquisite 400-year-old mosque, were destroyed or vandalised during the recent anti-Muslim riots in the Indian state of Gujarat, according to a local survey.
    Experts say the damage is so extensive that it rivals the better publicised destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan or the wrecking of Tibet’s monasteries by the Red Guards.

    Several monuments have been reduced to rubble in the course of the riot, in which 2,000 people, mainly Muslims, have died. In other disturbances, Hindu gangs have smashed delicate mosque screens, thrown bricks at Persian inscriptions, and set fire to old Korans.

    “This has been a systematic attempt to wipe out an entire culture,” said Teesta Setalvad of Sapara, a body opposed to communal strife, who compiled the list. One of the monuments razed was the tomb of Vali Gujarati, the grandfather of Urdu poetry and inspiration of many later poets and singers, who died in Ahmedabad, the state’s main city, in 1707.

    In recent years the tomb lay in the middle of a busy main road. On the night of March 1 Hindu gangs with pickaxes smashed it and replaced it with a small brick temple dedicated to the Hindu monkey-god Hanuman.

    Two days later the state authorities flattened the spot completely. “I drove over him recently when I went to the airport,” Ms Setalvad said yesterday. “The government people used machinery to tar over him in a few hours.”

    Last weekend the Hindu nationalist state government, which is accused of complicity in the pogroms, stopped a group of intellectuals rebuilding the poet’s grave. They lacked permission, police officers said.

    Several of Vali’s fans have pointed out his own verse almost anticipates his ending:

    The city of whose songs I

    have always sung

    Why can I not bear to live in

    that city now?

    The destruction of his tomb has prompted much soul-searching by secular intellectuals, who have been pondering whether Hindu-Muslim relations can ever recover from the worst religious riots in India for 10 years.

    They point out that the attacks follow a pattern established in 1992 when Hindu zealots demolished the 16th-century mosque in Ayodhya.

    Right-wing Hindu scholars have argued that India’s Mughal kings knocked down several Hindu temples to build their own imperial mosques and that Hindu gangs who tear down Muslim shrines are merely “redeeming the past”.

    “By destroying the symbols of a community you destroy the community itself,” said Professor Imtiaz Ahmed, of the Jarwaharlal Nehru University in Delhi. The tragedy, secular historians say, is that Hindus and Muslims in Gujarat have a long tradition of tolerance.

    Arab traders first arrived on the west coast of India in the late 7th century and by the early 10th century there were 10,000 Muslims in Gujarati ports.

    And like many of India’s Muslim rulers, Ahmedabad’s 15th-century sultan and founder, Ahmad Shah I, married a rajput (Hindu) princess. His mosques and civic buildings incorporated Islamic and rajput elements and he employed Hindus in the highest offices of state.

    Gujarati Muslims are, therefore, among India’s longest-established sects, and most of them are descended from converts, not “foreign invaders”.

    Several 16th-century buildings have been pulverised. They include two 400-year-old mosques, one of them apparently bulldozed in the presence of two ministers in the state government.

    You have mentioned about my language. Please first see ur language and some of ur collegues language. I think I have put up my point.
    Yes Babri Masjid is 17 yrs old topic and we all as responsible citizens of India should leave it for the court to decide. We have already lost so much during rights and bomb blast during 92-93 and this should not be dragged any more.
    But, dear friend, when some so called Hinduvta party shouts slogan,takes Rath yatra,conducts poja on the disputed land near babri masjid, then what should one do.You tell if this happens to you how would you react. I think by the demolition of the babri masjid a deep wound was made in the heart of every muslim and with the passage of time the wound is healing, but every year the so called mesiah of hinduvta are conduction pooja and shouting slogans, mandir wahin banayenge and thus it opens again the old wound.

    If we give away the babri masjid to our hindu brothers, but then there is new issue about Mathura,Taj Mahal….

    You are talking about the time when Muslims or Britishers rule the country. That was not democracy and Kings and the Britisher did what ever they wanted to do and hence we cannot compare those time and todays time. Today we are leaving in democratic country, which gives us the right to practise the religion of our choice, and at the same time the law and order, helps us to save the places of our worship.

    hi Dhiraj,

    In Quran it is mentioned that if you kill one innocent, that means you have killed the whole of humanity.
    But at the same time a Muslim is responsible to save his religion and holy book Quran and hence to save it some times he has to take the help of debates or sometimes swords depending upon the situation the other party has created.
    In Quran it is mentioned that you should invite people to know about your religion and be an ambassador of Islam. People should be attracted to you by your behaviour, trustworthiness and honesty.
    We dont and are not supposed to force people or bribe people with money or other facilities to accept Islam.
    Islam means submission to the Will of Allah, and unless and until one accepts the teachings of Islam by heart,he or she is muslim for the name sake only.

    I feel this generation of ours should work hard to reduce the differences between hindus and Muslims and for that sake amount all religions, castes. If you want to put your point of Hiduvta or Islam, that should be limited to the healthy debate only.

    If we dont tell out childrens that Muslims are bad, hindus are doing these things wrongs. So and so is scheduled cast,dalit or etc, our children when grow then they will also not differentiate between different people.

    But for this we need to discourage the so called Masiah of Hinduvta, who are asking vote in the name of hinduta. If these party come to power that shows the mentality of the local people also.

    Comman Man

    You want me to do something to improve the victim mentality of Muslims. Let me refer you back to the point i made earlier regarding civil and political rights. Where is the fair representation of Muslims in the politial stream gone in India? What is that you want Muslims to do? Shall oppressed Muslims pretend that all is well when clearly it is not. How come the Dalit and scheduled castes deservedly get reservation? This is because the few high caste hindus have trampled on the Dalit rights for centuries by not even allowing them to come and pray in high caste hindu temples.

    Do you know that there are many Muslims that are in Jail for years and they have not been tried for any crime. They are in Jail because they are Muslim. Please visit Sabarmati Jail and make enquiry who is there, for what and for how long.

    Feel the pain that Muslims feel.Yet we are having dialogue with you. The reason is becuase there are many good Indians of all faiths and we, the Indians, are unlike other communities that seek justice from the bullet of a gun or worse.

    You want Muslims to make progress.Then go and stop the boycott of Muslim businesses. Stop the apartheid of Muslims in Gujarat.

    You people seem to think that Muslims don’t have a brain. A couple of you have referred to Israel.Who needs Isreal when you have the biggest Hindutva terreorrosts in Gujarat. That is the reality comman man. The reality is that the experiment of Gujarat of 2002 is the biggest danger facing the world today. What Hitler unashamedly done to the Jews will be nothing compared to What Hidutva will do to the Muslims.

    I am providing advance warning to you and all of your lot that Hindutva must be stopped. Don’t say i did not warn you because you have been warned.

    I have nothing further to add and i leave you with my best wishes and I hope that the good amongst all of us come together to make the evil impossible.
