Modi's clearance in the Gujarat riots case angers Indian Muslims
A special panel of the Indian Supreme Court probing the deadly 2002 Gujarat riots says there is no evidence that Gujarat's Chief Minister Narendra Modi had a role in the massacre.
Zakia Jafri, wife of the slain Indian minister Ehsaan Jafri, who was killed in the western Indian state of Gujarat over a decade ago, said she was shocked when the Metropolitan Magistrate M.S. Bhatt read out the findings of the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) report on the Gujarat bloodbath. The report gave Gujarat's Chief Minister Narendra Modi a clean chit, saying there was no evidence to implicate Modi and 61 others accused of playing a role in the riots.
On 27 February, 2002, a Muslim mob allegedly set fire to the Sabarmati Express train. The train had been carrying Hindu pilgrims returning from Ayodhya, where 10 years before Hindu nationalists had destroyed the centuries-old Babri Mosque. Then the whole state went up in flames as Hindu extremists allegedly took their revenge on Muslims, killing some 1,000 people, mainly Muslims, in retaliatory attacks. The killing only died down several days later when the army was called in.
Right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) leader Narendra Modi, who was also chief minister of Gujarat at the time, was accused of ordering the police not to intervene.
"I am heartbroken, but I am not going to give up. I will fight for justice as long as I am alive. In the court of the Lord, justice can be delayed but cannot be denied," Zakia told DW.
Muslims react in disbelief
The Indian Muslim community reacted to the SIT report with anger and disbelief.
"Modi is a terrorist. He unleashed state-sponsored terrorism in Gujarat. With an excuse to curb terrorism, innocent people have been arrested and harassed," Syed Ahmed Bukhari, chief cleric of Delhi's Jama Masjid (mosque) told DW.
"This is a travesty of justice. We have seen our loved ones killed and raped, and we are still waiting for justice. Everyone knows how Ehsaan Jafri was killed. The police did nothing and Modi orchestrated the riots," said Salim Sheikh of the Jan Sangharsh Manch (JSM), a non-government organization campaigning for the riot victims.
On the other hand, the BJP was pleased that one of their main leaders, and the possible BJP candidate for the post of prime minister in 2014 elections, had got a reprieve in the case.
"The riots cannot be used to tarnish the image of Narendra Modi," BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad told DW. "The state has witnessed immense development and growth (under Modi's leadership) and the world acknowledges it," he added.
"It's a big relief for us," Sushma Swaraj, leader of the opposition in parliament, tweeted.
