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 5: Gujarat police was anti-Muslim

Posted on May 22, 2008 - Filed Under 12-Concocted Lies and Myths by the media | 32 Comments

Fact: Far from it, the police was slow to act on Muslim fanatics for fear of being called ‘anti-Muslim’ by the media as implied by the report of India Today dated 20th May 2002. As many as 170 people were shot dead by the police in Gujarat- i.e. killed in police firing as of 27 April 2002 according to Times of India dated 28 April 2002 while the official records now show 199 killed in police firing, till the end of the riots. Since riots continued till 10 May 2002, it explains the increase in the number of police firing deaths, since more were killed after 28 April and also some injured earlier may have died later.

Some Muslims greeted the police, and also the army, with bullets and turned off the power supply and made life hell, and also started riots and accused the police of being biased, when the police came to search for armories in some Muslim areas like Juhapura, Kalupur etc, as reported by a major weekly India Today. For fear of being labeled anti-Muslim, the police failed to do their duty.

The official records show that as many as 552 security personnel were injured trying to control the riots- 83 officers, 419 men and 50 Home Guard. Many policemen lost their lives as well, like when a mob burnt alive a policeman in Juhapura on 1st March 2002 as reported by The Hindu the next day, or in Ahmedabad’s Gomtipur area on 21 April 2002- Ramnavami Day, when constable Amar Patil was stabbed to death.

India Today weekly in its issue dated 20 May 2002, clearly admits that, far from being anti-Muslim, the Gujarat police did not act speedily against Muslim fanatics and rioters, for fear of being called anti-Muslim by the biased and partisan media.

The India Today weekly report dated 20 May 2002 says-”A series of attacks on policemen by Muslims has further added to the lack of faith. Now, strapped with the anti-Muslim label, the police has been slow in acting against Muslim fanatics”.

This will contain the above sentence in the 6th paragraph from the top.
The Gujarat Police saved at least 24,000 Muslims from certain death in the first three days-in places like Sanjeli, Bodeli, and Viramgam in particular.

See passages 2,3 and 4 from the top.

Gujarat police shot dead 98 people in the first 3 days-majority of whom are Hindus. The Police arrested most of the accused for rioting. Also The Times of India in a report titled “More fall prey to police firings in Gujarat” dated 28 April 2002 says that a total of 35,552 people were arrested for rioting in Gujarat- out of whom 27,901 were Hindus.

See link: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/More-fall-prey-to-police-firings-in-Gujarat/articleshow/8283550.cms

Moreover, the prosecution of the police was so efficient that until now, at least 443 people have been convicted for the violence in Gujarat-out of whom at least 332 are Hindus and 111 are Muslims (31 for Godhra and 80 for post-Godhra). As from the newspaper reports available to us itself we can see 249 convictions, 184 Hindus and 65 Muslims (31 for Godhra and 34 for post-Godhra) which in itself is a world record. The list of all the newspaper reports is given in Myth 21.  The actual convictions are 443- 332 Hindus and 111 Muslims according to official records.This is so, since the newspapers did not seem to report all the convictions, or we did not record all of them or both.

    first of all
    it is not the way of discussing
    one who discuss we should depart them in to brazil jungles. every person is responsible for all. if one know then he should try to inform police to take action. and where we live we should be loyal to that country. if we live and earn in india then we must protect india from any attack. and we should keep eyes open to watch what is happening around us. only india is the country in world where other religion peoples are at top positions unlike other country. parties will do reservations or other things to earn votes.

    Im proud to be an Indian. Where East Germany and West Germany have united. We in India are more divided now than ever on issues like Modi. But this is ok because we are a democratic country. What Modi did is like what Hitler did to jews. One cannot simply wipe out a community like muslims from India. Look what happended to Hitler in the end he committed suicide.

    well said Shankar, all these so called REAL HINDU MEN are disgustingly sick minded, they easily call themselves “WE HINDUS” as if they own the religion, and all of us who do not support their organizations are traitors, these people find small reasons to instigate hatred among other communities, similarly, Godhra was just a spark they were waiting for to cause such a mayhem in the state..

    consider thew fact, on the fateful day of Godhra tragedy, only 3 police men were on duty for a entire railway station, where all other police officers drinking BHANG AT HOME?? it was all done to let tensions escalate and some bad thing to happen…

    These slaves of RSS keep repeating, that GUJARAT GENOCIDE was reaction to godhra incident, ask them , when BABRI MASJID came down, hindu muslims in many parts of india had clashes, because of such a a major reason, now are their only hindus in gujarat, why did this fire not spread in other states where fanatic HINDUS exist, because most of those states re ruled by Congress, there is no these cowards can go on streets to kill and mame people with police taking acre of the business…

    RAHUL KEDIA ONCE SAID, VHP exercised restraint after Godhra, YOU LIARS TELL ME, if it wanted to keep peace in the state after that tragedy,. why would it call a statewide BANDH and make the roads and streets deserted?/ cause so much loss of business, any pro India organization will never do that..THE ONLY REASON THEY DID THIS, SO THAT THEIR CRIMINALS CAN HAVE FULL CONTROL OF THE STREETS, SO NO ONE HAS TO SEE THEIR DEATH DANCE AS INNOCENTS ARE BEING RAPED, KILLED, MAIMED AND BURNED…

    WHAT A SHAME, THESE MONSTERS HAVE MADE A JOKE OF INNOCENT BLOOD, BY CALLING IT A RETALIATION, RETALIATION TO WHAT?? HUNDREDS OF INCIDENTS HAPPENED IN INDIA, DO PEOPLE COME OUT ON STREETS TO KILL EACH OTHER? WHY DID THIS HAPPEN WHEN THESE FANATIC HINDUS ALSO CALLED KARSEVAKS WERE KILLED? BECAUSE THEY SYMBOLIZE VHP’S STAND ON RAM TEMPLE, THIS IS WHY INNOCENTS WERE KILLED…

    IF ORDINARY MEN WILL DIE, VHP WON’T EVEN CARE TO KNOW HOW MANY DIED, BUT WHEN HTIER IDEOLOGY WAS ATTACKED, THEY EASILY GOT THE BACKING OF ENTIRE HINDU SOCIETY AS IF ALL HINDUS SUPPORT THEM…THIS WAS NOT A HINDU BACKLASH, THIS WAS PURE REVENGEFUL HATRED TOWARDS A DIFFERENT CULTURE..SIMPLE AND SOLID…

    salik khan INDIA Says:

    it is sad to see such comments from all of you friends…
    still we are on the same way of hindu msulim
    and let me tell you you all not alone dis
    evn many muslims feels the same for hindus
    but i think the time has come to be little bit broad minded
    still you all are saying many useless things about muslims
    fire crackres are burnt and all..
    der are many regions in our country were being a muslim is a tabo.
    why not we can think that we are indians first
    its not true dat due to muslims we are not progressing or muslims multily faster
    even the old generations hindus have the same no of offsprings
    but now no muslim can think to have a large family and i think you alll must be awared of it
    so if we want to progress we have to clear al these notions from our mind no matter we are muslim or hindu
    iam a muslim by birth and islamic by faith,
    i follow my religion and respect all the rest religions and believe me aiam not the only muslim der are many..
