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 13: Narendra Modi said-“Every action has equal and opposite reaction”

Posted on October 8, 2012 - Filed Under 12-Concocted Lies and Myths by the media | 14 Comments

FACT: Balbir Punj writes-“Blatant myths and fiction have lacerated the facts on Gujarat. The Times of India (March 3) reported Modi’s much-publicised misquote of Newton’s third law—”Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. In fact, the CM had never said such a thing and no other paper except for Times of India had carried the misquote in its original reportage. But later on, numerous editorials were penned on the basis of this canard. All his denials were thrown in the dustbin…”

Virendra Kapoor wrote in Cybernoon on 19 March 2002-

  “An angry Modi wrote to the English daily, which had first put the quote in his mouth, protesting that he had never met its correspondent nor had he an occasion to say what he had been quoted as having said and that it was only fair that the paper made amends for its wholly ‘inventive reportage.’ The newspaper editors, however, refused to do so and two weeks later were still sitting on Modi’s letter. Left to himself perhaps the paper’s senior-most editor may well have published Modi’s letter but since his writ does not run and the place is teeming with new-fangled journalists who openly talk of blacking out all news about the Sangh Parivar, and the paper’s management is only obsessed with packing nothing other than revenue-earning advertisement in its columns, Modi’s letter has not been published. Modi, therefore, is not entirely wrong in complaining of the bias of the media and the attempt to tar his image. For, the quote in the said paper was immediately recycled and rehashed by the rest of the print and audio visual media.

Inquiries reveal that no one from the paper had met the Gujarat Chief Minister on the day he is supposed to have quoted Newton’s law to its correspondent to justify the revenge killings of the minority community in Ahmedabad and other places in the state. The paper’s editors too have concluded that the said quote was ‘invented’ by the correspondent to indicate ‘the attitude of the Modi government.’ Indeed, it was all a cooked up job to justify what the paper’s deputy bureau chief in New Delhi said at a gathering of secularist scribes to ‘fight the fascist forces and not to give them any space in ‘our’ papers.’

Time the owners woke up to this little upstart who seeks to usurp the ownership of their paper for his own brand of fascism.

Meanwhile, Modi is contemplating taking his complaint to the Press Council of India.”

Even the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigating Team (SIT) said in its report submitted to the court that there is no evidence at all of Narendra Modi saying “Every action has equal and opposite reaction” and his statements were quoted out-of-context and twisted.

When anyone makes an allegation, he has to prove it. No one has ever been able to prove that Modi ever uttered these words. And these people- far from apologizing- have not even published Modi’s denials.

Some more details of this issue are given in the book but not in this website.

    Hello, I completely agree that every action has equal and opposite reaction. First let me explain the points one by one.
    1. Firstly, Pakistan was created as a part of larger conspiracy by the West. The West (Britain, USA) could never accept that their sun would set in the east. So they needed a formidable platform by which they can interfere in political affairs in this region. The Jews in America, then formidably supported the World War II for Allied Powers against the Axis powers. USA and Britain, had to create Israel because there were no Jewish states and it was carved by taking an formidable piece from Palestine. But there were oil issues involved and Arab states were to be given something (in terms of their religious beliefs and ideologies) by USA and Britain, so they created West and East Pakistan(now Bangladesh). These two countries were the largest populated Islamic states then.

    2. Secondly, India was always a Hindu state from centuries. The Muslims, Sakhs, Huns, Mughals, Afghans whoever invaded, they always uttered it as “Hindustan”. At the time of the implementation of the Preamble in 1950 we were not considered as Secular or socialist. During the 42th constitutional amendment in 1976 by Congress better to say Indira Gandhi, Secular and Socialist were introduced to please then USSR (now Russia) because at that point of time we only had Russia as only permanent member of UN Security Council who supported India’s stand on Kashmir.

    3. There had been repeated cases of Muslim atrocities on majority Hindus in India in free India even after 1950, when the constitution was implemented. Nobody will ever speak of :-
    a. 1998 Chamba massacre
    b. 1998 Wandhama massacre .
    c. 1998 Chapnari massacre
    d. 2000 Amarnath pilgrimage massacre
    e. 2002 Raghunath Temple attacks refers to two fidayeen attacks in 2002 on the Raghunath Temple
    f. The 2002 Kaluchak Massacre
    g. 2013 Canning riots in West Bengal in which Muslim mobs burned down over 200 Hindu homes in the villages of Naliakhali, Herobhanga, Gopalpur and Goladogra villages in the Canning police station area.
    h. The Marad massacre was the killing of eight Hindus by a Muslim mob on 2 May 2003 at the Marad beach of the Kozhikode district, Kerala, India.
    i. Above all the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits from Jammu and Kashmir, and till date they are forced to live in relief camps.
    j. I am leaving out, the bomb blasts in Bangalore IIST, Mumbai Massacare in 1993 and 2008, Hyderbad blasts, Benaras blasts etc. because these were either broadcasted on Indian news channels or printed on newspapers.

    4. Finally, I will like to end this discussion by finalizing that if India is truly a Secular nation, then fulfilling that, is both the responsibilities of Hindus as well as Muslims. Muslim leaders like Bukhari cannot go all along and give hate speeches against Hindus and comment on Love Jihad. Also it’s high time for our national and regional leaders to determine whether they want to bow their heads in front of Muslims, for mere vote bank, who are sponsoring atrocities against Hindus or do they really want that the Law of the Land should prevail. Secularism does not mean bowing ones head in front of others religious beliefs, it means respecting one another’s religious beliefs and giving one another the required chance to practice and follow that religious beliefs.

    It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence.

    The writer has tried his best to paint modi in white colors.but failed to do so.let’s hope modi performs much better as PM.
    All power to him may he treat all citizens equally and control the hate speeches of sangh parivar rogues like togadia and singhal and his rabid MPs

    Y so many questions are asked about wat happened in Gujarat? If u intend to change this feeling u wud have to change history , which sadly none of us can every book we study in the history class in every board talks of Muslim atrocities, so from very beginning we learn Muslim are bad. Which might not be wrong or right. But wat has it got to do with Gujarat? Right? May be nothing. May be everything. Wat we r taught from the very beginning is that u accept all the atrocities coz u have been under that for more than 500 years. So today if we retaliate then it becomes an issue. That’s y bloody Pakistani can keep on attacking us.that’s y a terrorist group can grow up as IM. Bhai app Hindustani ho, haatho or chudiyan pahen ke bethe raho. ….

    This is wat is expected of us…
    Bloody nobody talks about German bakery, Mumbai attack, gaya attacks,
    Everybody is shouting against modi.why?coz he had the balls unlike others…..
    Har har modi……..
