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 9: Gujarat riots were like the 1984 anti-Sikh riots

Posted on May 22, 2008 - Filed Under 12-Concocted Lies and Myths by the media | 33 Comments

Fact: There was a contrast of day and night in these two riots. NDTV and company, and some stark liars deliberately misled the nation by equating the two riots. In May-June 2005, NDTV deliberately asked a question to its viewers in its programme “Khabron ki Khabar” (anchored by Vinod Dua):

“Which of these issues are you most bothered about?

1-Sachin Tendulkar’s injury

2-A question on films

3-The blot on BJP and the Congress for the Gujarat and 1984 riots”

This question’s options, just like any other of NDTV, are typically Marxist. Option 3 belies the reality and equates the 1984 riots with the Gujarat riots, and directly accuses the BJP of orchestrating the riots. (An article on some facts about the media can be read hereNDTV is CPM Today. And another article which is worth reading is “The channels strategy of attacks”. Note that these articles are purely the view of the blogger and not of )

The next chapter will comprehensively point out the differences between the Gujarat riots and the 1984 riots. In 1984, the Sikhs were butchered. In 2002, Muslims attacked Hindus and as many as 254 Hindus were killed in the Gujarat riots. In 1984, riots occurred outside New Delhi, including places like West Bengal, Tripura, while not a single riot occurred outside Gujarat in 2002.

In 1984, officially 3,000 Sikhs were killed. Not a single Congressman was killed in 1984 riots (except Indira Gandhi) while as many as 313 Hindus were killed in Gujarat in 2002 AD, including 59 karsevaks killed in Godhra.

Not even one person was killed in 1984 in police firing, while 199 people were killed in police firing in the Gujarat riots of 2002 AD. 40,000 Hindus were living in refugee camps in Gujarat, while not even a single relief camp was organized for the Sikhs in 1984, not to talk of any Congressman needing to live in refugee camps, as per ex-Director General of Police, B P Singhal. Not only was there a huge difference in the nature of the riots- there was also a huge difference in the government handling of the riots.

There are many more details of these contrasts. For full details of these contrasts- see the next chapter. Click on the link:

    Why don’t you file a FIR in state of GUJARAT (STATE OF THE RAPIST) ?? lets see how quickly police come into action…lolz, if they could do anything , people wouldn’t be dying in India everyday…if they had done their duty, there would never have been a GODHRA in first place and never had GUJARAT happened.

    Also I am not warning India, I am just using same mentality this site uses to counter violence..they say FOR THIS SIN OF 2000 MUSLIMS, ONLY 1000 MUSLIMS WERE KILLED , and now I wish for the SIN OF 100,000 HINDUS OF GUJARAT, SOME INNOCENTS MUST BE KILLED.. so I hope you get my point…and i think you are forgetting India doesn’t have a patriot act, so they can really bother me sitting in US, you see this is real democracy, no one can dare touch me in my home, got it?? anyways I pay too much taxes for the US government to bother me, they love me for being an active citizen helping the economy..

    and do take my advise seriously though, so file an FIR in GUJARAT against me instead of sitting in your daddy made luxury room and being a ABCD!! for realzz doode!! lmao

    Mr. Deepak,

    Are you warning India about another Bomb Blast?. I think others should take a note of this and probably inform the cops.

    Police will have better ways to find out the IP address of this guy and i am pretty sure he is using a fake name and identity.

    Vij and others;
    I will call him or any one Mr, because my culture, my HINDU culture taught me to be cultured and not be a barbarian. I belive i understand the Noble HINDU culture and so i behave like this and not because i am born in USA.

    Thanks guys for all the discussions.

    Sikh Genocide of 1984: long search for culprits

    It is generally believed that the Congress cadres were behind this genocide. This is true but there were other forces too which actively participated in this massacre and whose role has never been investigated. Those who were witness to the genocide of 1984 were stunned by the swiftness and military precision of the killer marauding gangs (later on witnessed during the Babri mosque demolition, burning alive of Dr. Graham Steins with his two sons and recent pogrom of the Muslims in Gujarat) who went on a burning spree of the innocent Sikhs. This was beyond the capacity of the Congress thugs.

    I have an important RSS document which may throw some light on the unhidden aspects of the genocide. It was authored and circulated by a veteran ideologue of the RSS, Nana Deshmukh on November 8, 1984. Interestingly, this document was published in the Hindi Weekly Pratipaksh edited by George Fernandes (Defence Minister of India 1999-2004, and presently a great pal of the RSS) in its edition of November 25, 1984 titled ‘Indira Congress-RSS collusion’ with the following editorial comment:

    “The author of the following document is known as an ideologue and policy formulator of the RSS. After the killing of Prime Minister (Indira Gandhi) he distributed this document among prominent politicians. It has a historical significance that is why we have decided to publish it, violating policy of our Weekly. This document highlights the new affinities developing between the Indira Congress and the RSS. We produce here the Hindi translation of the document.”

    This document may help in unmasking the whole lot of criminals involved in the massacre of innocent Sikhs who had nothing to do with the killing of Indira Gandhi. This document may also throw light on where the cadres came from, who meticulously organized the killing of Sikhs. Nana Deshmukh in this document is seen outlining the justification of the massacre of the Sikh community in 1984. According to him the massacre of Sikhs was not the handiwork of any group or anti-social elements but the result of a genuine feeling of anger among Hindus of India.

    This document also shows the true degenerated and fascist attitude of the RSS towards all the minorities of India . The RSS has been arguing that they are against Muslims and Christians because they are the followers of foreign religions. Here we find them justifying the butchering of Sikhs who according to their own categorization happened to be the followers of an indigenous religion.

    The RSS often poses as a firm believer in Hindu-Sikh unity. But in this document we will hear from the horse’s mouth that the RSS like the then Congress leadership, believed that the massacre of the innocent Sikhs was justified. Nana Deshmukh in this document is seen outlining the justification of the massacre of the Sikh community in 1984. His defence of the carnage can be summed up as in the following.

    1. The massacre of Sikhs was not the handiwork of any group or anti-social elements but the result of a genuine feeling of anger among Hindus of India.

    2. Deshmukh did not distinguish the action of the two security personnel of Mrs. Indira Gandhi, who happened to be Sikhs, from that of the whole Sikh community. From his document it emerges that the killers of Indira Gandhi were working under some kind of mandate of their community. Hence attacks on Sikhs were justified.

    3. Sikhs themselves invited these attacks, thus advancing the Congress theory of justifying the massacre of the Sikhs.

    4. He glorified the ‘Operation Blue Star’ and described any opposition to it as anti-national. When Sikhs were being killed in thousands he was warning the country of Sikh extremism, thus offering ideological defense of those killings.

    5. It was Sikh community as a whole which was responsible for violence in Punjab .

    6. Sikhs should have done nothing in self-defence but showed patience and tolerance against the killer mobs.

    7. These were Sikh intellectuals and not killer mobs which were responsible for the massacre. They had turned Sikhs into a militant community, cutting them off from their Hindu roots, thus inviting attacks from the nationalist Indians. Interestingly, Deshmukh would not mind having militant Hindus. Moreover, he treated all Sikhs as part of the same gang and defended attacks on them as a reaction of the nationalist Hindus.

    8. He described Indira Gandhi as the only leader who could keep the country united and on the killing of such a great leader such killings could not be avoided.

    9. Rajiv Gandhi who succeeded Mrs. Gandhi as the Prime Minister of India and justified the nation- wide killings of Sikhs by saying, “When a huge tree falls there are always tremors felt”, was lauded and blessed by Nana Deshmukh at the end of the document.

    10. Shockingly, the massacre of Sikhs was being equated with the attacks on the RSS cadres after the killing of Gandhiji and we find Deshmukh advising Sikhs to suffer silently. Everybody knows that the killing of Gandhiji was inspired by the RSS and the Hindutva Ideology whereas the common innocent Sikhs had nothing to do with the murder of Mrs. Indira Gandhi.

    11. There was not a single sentence in the Deshmukh document demanding, from the then Congress Government at the Centre, remedial measures for controlling the violence against the minority community. Mind this, that Deshmukh circulated this document on November 8, 1984, and from October 31 to this date Sikhs were left alone to face the killing gangs. In fact November 5-10 was the period when the maximum killings of Sikhs took place. Deshmukh was just not bothered about all this.
    Deshmukh document did not happen in isolation. It represented the real RSS attitude towards Sikh genocide of 1984. The RSS is very fond of circulating publicity material, especially photographs of its khaki shorts- clad cadres doing social work. For the 1984 violence they have none. In fact, Deshmukh’s article also made no mention of the RSS cadres going to the rescue of Sikhs under siege. This shows up the real intentions of the RSS during the genocide.

    There is not a single sentence in the Deshmukh document demanding, from the then Congress Government at the Centre, remedial measures for controlling the violence against the minority community. Importantly, Deshmukh circulated this document on November 8, 1984, and from October 31 to this date Sikhs were left alone to face the killing gangs. George Fernandes while making this document public in 1984 wrote that it showed ‘Indira Congress-RSS collusion’. Nanavati Commission must investigate whether this collusion was confined to political sphere or went beyond to killing fields.

    Instead of RSS- Congress needs to be banned because of its murder of 3000 Sikhs in 1984.
    Because of the gruesome roasting of 59 Hindus in Godhra by its leaders of Godhra.
    Because of the conviction of its Muslim leader for terrorist acts in September 2008-in Surat 1993 blasts case-a former Congress Minister.

    Ban your fascist thoughts of banning rival ideologies. You do not allow different ideologies- and as has been said by others in this forum- because you cannot properly argue- you SIMPLY PUT IRREVELENT THINGS- and use abuses- such as your favorite word- “Moron”.
    I wonder why the moderators of this site have posted such words- from a man who is incapable of respecting the opponent’s arguments. In any civilized society- a healthy debate is expected- where the debators have respect for each other’s knowledge and simply counter the arguments.
    You put in irrelevent thingsa- like BJPs defeat in 2004- or Rajnath-Jaitley differences. What has that got to do with the Gujarat riots of 2002 AD?
