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 2: Muslims were ‘butchered’ in Gujarat

Posted on October 8, 2012 - Filed Under 12-Concocted Lies and Myths by the media | 9 Comments

Fact: Undoubtedly, Muslims were killed in one-sided attacks in many places in the state in the 2002 riots, like in Naroda Patiya, Gulbarg Society, Naroda Gram, Sadarpura, Ode, Pandarwada and other places, but by and large, the riots were not one-sided, and Muslims were hardly the cattle hiding from the slaughter house. As we have seen in a couple of earlier chapters, Muslims were equally on the offensive, at least after the first three days.

Muslims killed Hindus brutally in Himmatnagar near Ahmedabad, Danilimda, and Sindhi Market and other areas of Ahmedabad, as reported by weekly India Today.

To read the full story of India Today-

See paragraphs 8,9,10,11 and 15 of this story in India Today.

The Hindu dated 2 March 2002 reported: “Unlike Thursday (28 February) when one community was entirely at the receiving end, the minority backlash caused further worsening of the situation.”

   See last line of 9th paragraph from the top.

    The Indian Express reported on 2 March 2002: “(On 1st March) Tension escalated in the walled city areas just before the Friday prayers. There were violent clashes between mobs in Jamalpur, Bapunagar and Rakhial (all Muslim concentrated areas of Ahmedabad).Clearly, Muslims were on the offensive.

   And The Times of India also reported the same day: “(On 1st March) There were signs of retaliation in areas like Juhapura, Kalupur, Dariapur and Shahpur (all Muslim-dominated areas).” This clears all possible doubts.  

   Reports of The Hindu on this subject throughout the months of March and April 2002 make it clear that Muslims were on the offensive, called the shots in many areas, drove out Hindus from their houses, started the riots in many cases. India Today’s report on this subject in its issue dated 15 April 2002 also points out this same thing. To read the full story of Attacks on Hindus, read the book. What the Gujarati media reported about attacks on Hindus by Muslims was absolutely true, this was reported by none other than The Times of India, The Hindu, The Indian Express, India Today, Outlook, The Tribune, The Telegraph etc on other occasions.

Around 40,000 Hindus were forced to take shelter in refugee camps. The Dalits suffered heavily in the riots, only at the hands of the Muslims. On 21 March 2002, 50 Hindu shops were burnt in Ahmedabad’s Revdi Bazaar that caused a loss of 15 crore rupees.

See link:

The Muslims attacked the Hindus on 1st and 2nd March 2002 as well. They are on record starting as many as 157 riots in Gujarat after 3rd March 2002. They did not allow the police and the Army to search for criminals in their areas. They pelted the police and even the Army with bullets and stones, when they arrived to conduct search operations in Muslim areas. The Muslims formed human chains and cut off power at night so that the criminals could flee with weapons (from the Army).

Link:  Paragraph 15 from top.

Several judgments of different courts in Gujarat have sentenced 80 Muslims for rioting after post Godhra. On one occasion, 7 Muslims and on another occasion, 9 Muslims were convicted and punished for rioting and killing after Godhra. The full details of these convictions can be seen in the Chapter “Some court Judgments” given in the book but not in this website and in “Myth 21″ which is given in the website.

The conviction of Muslims proves that Muslims were equally on the offensive-and not the cattle hiding from the slaughter house that the media makes them out to be.

    The chapter starts with ‘Muslims were butchered in gujrat’ and nowhere gives the answer.

    It is the title of the Myth, not of the chapter. The chapter blasts this Myth by showing that Muslims were equally on the offensive.
