We are the well-wishers of humanity. And our only aim is to bring out the TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH-however disagreeable it may be. Learn the TRUTH of the Gujarat riots of 2002 by reading this site.
After persistent demands from readers, we have finally given in to their wishes and opened a twitter account in March 2012. You can follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/#!/Gujaratriotscom
After numerous requests from readers, we have opened a Facebook page as well, on 17 Feb 2014. You can ‘like’ our Facebook page here:
The author is a man who ran the site single-handedly from 2008 to 2011 with the help of someone in US who got the domain registered for him. He wrote the book first in 2007 and for 1 year tried to convince anyone who would listen that a website is needed to bring out the truth of the 2002 riots. It all went on deaf ears, and it is only by the efforts of an individual volunteer that they got the site registered in May 2008.
In Aug 2011 he got the help of a social media activist who was a not-too-old youngster. In 2012 they revamped it with help of some individuals- the design was changed and hence the site was down for a few months. But the only thing changed was the design-the content was absolutely the same before and after the revamp.
But even today the entire site is run by the author almost single-handedly. It has absolutely nothing to do with any other individual, group, or organisation. The author is keen to have the website and the book available in Hindi, along with English. We welcome all those willing to translate the website and / or the whole book in Hindi or any regional Indian language. The book was written in May 2007 but was not published till December 2014.
Some opponents have lied about our website. Our answers to those lies are here We have made it clear that we are open for correction if proven wrong. Since some opponents could not do that, could not refute the solid arguments on merit, they tried to reduce the credibility of the website by claiming that it was a part of PR work of some politicians. Far from it, the author got no support from anyone for 1 whole year in even registering the site. The book written in May 2007 was unpublished for 7 and a half years and has still not been translated in Hindi or any other language including Gujarati. If the site had anything to do with a politician of a level of Chief Minister, the least he would have done is ensure the book is published and translated in Hindi, to reach a far wider audience. We in fact accuse the Gujarat Government, and the Sangh Parivar of having the biggest-ever public relations disaster in human history (without exaggeration) as they did absolutely nothing from 2003 onwards to bring out the truth of the riots. At the risk of sounding boastful, we wonder what would have been the situation at least on the internet, had it not been for our site, and the efforts of the author to bring out the truth.
For argument’s sake, even if the website was ‘propaganda work’, how is that a refutation of the website’s arguments? Arguments have to be refuted on merit, not by saying they are work of Mr XYZ. We are open for correction if proven wrong. Till now, no opponent has ever refuted the arguments on merit.
THE STORY OF WWW.GUJARATRIOTS.COM
In 2007 the author finished the book, and urged many people to make a site on the issue of the 2002 riots. All his suggestions did not meet with any concrete action for more than 1 year. Then, just as he was about to give up, in May 2008 he read a report on the creation of a new website in some paper. He visited that website, and out of curiosity thought of contacting the people with a suggestion to make a site on the 2002 Gujarat riots. His first mail with a mere suggestion was quickly responded to, and in full agreement. The respondents and the author were in different continents, had no personal acquaintance at all, and yet gave a positive response. The author then sent them his book on email, which they liked and got the site www.gujaratriots.com registered in May 2008. From 22 May 2008, it is on. Since then, it was once revamped in 2012 with the help of some volunteers. It has been growing strong and hopes to one day bring out the truth in front of the whole world.
