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:

    Sikhs started terrorism in Punjab. They killed thousands of Hindhus & drive away millions of Hindhus from Punjab Number of Sikhs killed in Delhi in 1984 riots were peanut compare to lakhs of hindhus killed by sikh terrorist. My friends in this forum should understand if hindhus in India have even 10% barbarism what Sikhs have what would have happen to them. Hindus are most tolerant among all religion but there is limit to this tolerance and innocent sikhs in delhi just payed price of what Sikh terrorist have done to Hindhus in Punjab

    Vivek Sir,





    Aise words mat use karo ..”as per situation”, “we are working for hindus”… apna real motive COMPLETE KARKE DIKHAO…PAHLE SHURU TU KARO.

    You said, we re not making ram mandir currently because India is faced with many more problem, was India not facing same problems in 92? TAB BABRI GIRAYI KYUN THI?? Agar india ka itna khyaal tha, to us samay kyun itne log mare, hain?? BABRI GIRATE HUE INDIA KA KHYAAL NAHI AYA, AB MANDIR BANATE HUE BOHOT YAAD AA RAHI HAI??


    Ye elections hai Microwave, karma karo kar, gulami karo aur madir bana ke dikhao, maa ka dhudh piya hai to bana ke dikhao.

    tum gale 100 saal lage raho, nahi bana paoge madir us jagah, because that motive is immoral and only politically based!!

    Heartiest Congratulations to constituents of Maharashtra, Haryana and Arunachal for showing their firm belief in Secular and truly national party Congress.

    Yet again, time after time, majority of people have made my belief more strong that we all will live together, under same roof. This country is not some property of a PIMP called Bhagwat from an unknown place.

    Thanks to all who kept congress in power, because as far as we are governing India, these chaddi hanuman’s can’t rise up.

    I am glad you see fascist forces loose terribly in Haryana and Arunachal, in haryana almost white washed, sooner or later, all these sister/brother parties will thing of past. Ram mandir should me made, in fact more than 1000 should be made, but not on the blood of innocent people.

    If we make Ram mandir, a little away from disputed Babri site, will our religion disown us??? Think about it, again, thanks to secular people of India.

    Long Live mutli-cultural harmony, death and shame on Hindutva Brigade and their slaves.

    To,all real Hindus on this site(except half mad secularist),
    Hindu religion is not just a simple religion but it is more than special.It is a flow of different thoughts,culture,habits etc.This all features are reflecting on the living style of Hindu peoples.Hindu religion was always ready to accept new things from other religion.AHIMSA PARMO DHARMA is the main guidline of Hindu religion.
    But since past nearly 1000 years Hindu religion faced a horrible attacked on the Hindu people and Hindu culture.Muslim and Christian religions were tried hard to destroyed this beautiful religion.But fortunately,there were some Avtar of Prabhu Krishna like Veer Maha Rana Pratap,Maha Rana Sang,Guru Govindsingh,Shree ShivajiMaharaj,Shree Sambhaji Maharaj who were tried to save Hindu religion and its culture.
    Hindu religion is always tolerated the aggressive activities of Muslim and Christian religion.Due to this,Hindu religion is losing his strength and culture.
    Sangh Parivar is just wanted to Hindus own Akhand Hindu Rashtra.For that purpose they have creat sub organisation like VHP,BJD etc.Hinduon ki Raksha karna ye hi to Sangh Parivar ka kam hain,ham Khun ka badla khun se hi lenge.Secularism is real enemy of Hindu rashtra.Ham iss ko ukhad kar hi fek denge.Jo bhi samne ayega wo gaya…..suf Fus!
    Karma karo! jago hindu logo jago! microwave anewali hain! fus fus ha ha ha!
    Jai ShreeRam! Long live Hinduism and Hindustan! Jai Shivaji Maharaj!

    I need not try to harm you.Hindu Rastra wo bhi Akhand ho raha hain ye dekhkar,tum apne aap Teesta setalwaad ke saath Atlantic ocean me kud jayega! Kya kare frustration aisi hi chij hoti hain!
    If i am not wrong,when Sangh Parivar stopped all highways of kashmir valley,that time congress was ruler party of the J&K state.What happened? Kya ukhada RSS ka? In Maharastra,at the time of Miraj riots,Sangh Parivar burned out many houses and Mastjids?Kya kiya congress ne? keep praising congress.HA HA HA!

    To,Deepak(Hindu but not fanatics),
    Agar Hindu religion ke liye hame Narak mile tobhi gam nahi,we are ready for it.atleast ham Teesta setlewad ke chamche to nahi kahelaenge tumhare jaise!
    Where is your Teesta Setlewad now? Kahi moov chupake baithi hogi!
    Only using rubbish and meaningless lauguage does not proved that you are most sensible secularist! Atleast T.Setalwad was showed her dare by raise voice against Mr.N.Modiji.But what are you doing for Secularism? nothing.go go in the Papistan and Afganistan,You have a lot of scope for your so called secular business.
    Human values? Teach them who were responsible for Godhra train burned incident,Rabodi riots,Baroda riots.Teach them who were responsible for murder of VHP leader and Yogi swami Laxmanand in the Orrisa,teach them who were responsible for the painful life of our Kashmiri Hindu Pandit and theire children.Many Hindu kashmiri women were raped in the Kashmir valley.they are not human?they are not innocent?is there difference between Hindu women and Muslim women? Ask them who are still suffering from handicapness since they were child in the riots of partition of Hindustan! If it is just history for you then for me Gujarat riots are History too.
    Ja Teesta setalwad ke bacche ja,Tu sirf USA me baithke bate kar! Watch the film ‘Swades’.learn something from it.and then try to teach us.Christmus gaya bhad mai!
    Karma karo! HI HI HI ! Human values! Nice word! Microwave! Fu Fu Fu!

    To,all ‘ real’ Hindus(not just like half mad secularist)on this site,
    SHREEMAD BHAGWADGEETA teaches us one powerful line.This line show what exactly Prabhu Shree Krishana wanted to say about our religion
    So wake my all real Hindu guys,the exact meaning of above line is Bhagwan will save our religion by weapon.not by Ahimsa(non vilonce) or Secularism.It means to save our Hindu religion,Hindu people can use weapons.So save our religion from Muslim and Christian religions.It is easy for psuedo secularist,to barking against Sangh Parivar and other Hindu organisation by sitting in the USA but working in Adivasi sector is much harder and harder.
    If some religion are acting against Hindu religion,then I assure to you all Hindu guys,Sangh Parivar will strike back for saving our religion.Agar secularist bichme aye to unko bhi jala denge.
    KARMA KARO! HA HA HA ! Wo bhi US main baithkar! Fu fu fu! Microwave ! HI HI HI!
    Jai shree Ram! Long live Hinduism!

    i feel like crying when i read about anti sikh riots not because sikhs were killed but because of the people who killed them(hindus),history says u people could not save honour of ur sisters and mothers u people would abandon even ur mothers to save your life and at the end we sikhs saved your sisters and mothers

    Glad you do understand our NOBLE HINDU CULTURE, but I don’t think you can say the same for your fellow partners in india, who hate minorities to a level that they are willing to kill them in most brutal forms, rape their women and even rape their children who are nuthing but children :(
