PM Modi gets clean chit in 2002 Gujarat riots case
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi gets a clean chit in the 2002 Gujarat riots case. Modi was the chief minister of the state during that time. He was accused of instigating violence. This had led to murder of hundreds of Muslims across Gujarat. The Nanavati Commission stated that police were inefficient in handling violence. The report was tabled in the Gujarat assembly on Wednesday.
This is an injustice to the families of over 2000 lives who were killed under Modi‘s watch as CM in 2002. Under the Modi Shah led BJP government, human lives have become a joke in this nation. #GujaratRiots- Srinivas BV, Congress leader.
The Nanavati report had 1500 pages in nine volumes. It states that Modi was clearly not part of abating, instigating or inspiring for violence. It states that an enquiry must be put into why police officials were incompetent in controlling mob.
Former Supreme Court justice GT Nanavati and former Gujarat High Court justice Akshay Mehta had already submitted a report on the riots in 2014 to the then chief Minister Anandiben Patel. “Hope the painful episode in history of Gujarat and India will have an emotional closure now Prayers to all souls who departed, may our resolve to prevent any such tragedy in future be stronger 2002 Gujarat riots: Nanavati panel gives clean chit to Modi”, tweeted Rahul Easwar from Kerala.
