Q.

Gujarat CM Narendra Modi on Thursday said he had played no role in the 2002 riots in the state and was ready to be hanged in public if found otherwise. The Special Investigation Team's (SIT) decision to summon Narendra Modi marks the first time any judicial or quasi-judicial body has seen fit to ask the Gujarat Chief Minister what exactly he was doing when murderous mobs took charge of his state in 2002. Is Narendra Modi really guilty?

Even though we found necessary evidences against politicians in atrocities done, almost no politician is convicted for such crimes in the history of India. I do not think the SIT can unravel any concrete evidences against Modi ,like the accusation against Jagdish Tytler in the atrocities against sikhs in the aftermath of Killing Indira Gandhi.Whether Modi is guilty or not the SIT wont prove a thing for or against him in the end.

I have seen the transformation of Gujrat since Narendra Modi became CM of the state. I have noticed that he is amongst the best CMs any state can get. There are several independent inquires that has acquitted him of any charges except for some central sponsored inquires. There is hardly any state in India where communal riots never happened. Which CM has taken the responsibility. Why solely blame and question Gujrat CM, who has time and again got people verdict to rule the same owing to its development drive.
Remember a phase I recently read, Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy. Several political parties that championed the art of minority vote bank would never let this issue settled; otherwise, how could they exploit the fear psychosis of minority. Has Modis development plans exclusively benefitted the majority Hindu population? One can very well compare the condition of Muslims ...more

There has been a sustained compaign to wipe out the Hindus from the earth for more than 1000 years !It started withe the annexation of Kandhar the present day Afganistan then West, the present dayern n Eastern provinces of pre-partition India, the present day Pakistan n Bangladesh.There has been invasion of close to 2 crores Bangladeshis all over the India.Only Indias' military might is holding on Kashmir.Nobody has ever questioned killings of cores of Hindus since 1st AD, NOBODY EVER THOUGHT TO SEEK AND OFFER APOLOGIES FOR KILLING OF HINDUS.WHAT IS PARTICULARLY DISTURBING IS THAT HINDUS ARE IN THE FOREFRONT AND PART OF THIS SINISTER COMPAIGN. I have a question to ask........Had Gujrat riots were one sided n state sponsore, the how come 200 + Hindus got killed by Police bullets n another 100 + by the other community in retaliation ? I am sure a day will come when the people of India would leran to respect sentiments of majority community n live together in peace.

Sumati Ji,
Thank you. I ve gone through all the replies and all r right in their points but Let me only add a few incidences Head of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation was sacked because he described Narendra Modi as Best Chief Minister. The congress lobby in USA stopped his visa,..and many more. That scarier Muslimface (riot victim) who was given shelter in West Bengal and RJD, SP, Cooooongress made the picture as election poster , is now living in Gujrat. These , the sycophants of Modern east India companies can not stand. We should not forget the imported bahu (another is on the way)is an implantation of an ideology that wants to eliminate NATIONALISTS and tern all into subservient Loyalist to that very ideology.
Rest is well said by Josna and Umesh

But look it in different angle, only because of proactiness of Modi Muslims were saved unlike sikhs who perished in thousands during delhi riouts where congress was ruling, if the verdict of SIT is favouring then these secularists and communists say even SIT was brought. but if SITY gives verdict on the lines of which secularists(meaning:Muslim Lovers) wants it then they will clamour for Modi's head.

As a chief misister of Gujarat we cannot blame Modi for what happened and only because of Modi , innocents were saved

Only when the congress is able to punish the perpetrators of sikh riots of the 1980's can this question be asked forcefully.

Do u think or feel that Dr. Goebbels of Nazi Germany was innocent in WW2? Goebbels belonged to the group called SChulzstaffel (SS) which went around eradicating Jews and enslaving Slavs. But Dr. Goebbels didn't do any of the "extermination" himself and I doubt he has even seen a dead body in his full career.

But Dr. Goebbels was found guilty of association with the SS organization by the Nuremburg Trials. To be frank with you, Goebbels himself was a fan of the occult. He was more interested in finding a mythological race of 8 foot pure Aryans in Tibet more so than disposing w/ Jews, but yet he was found guilty by association.....

The same w/ GEnerals Koetl and Jodl. Those two Generals were ARmy Generals not politicals, yet they were found guilty of association by being on Hitler's bunker w/ him personally in WW2. The Generals Jodl and Koetl were keeping Hitler updated on German army progress and on GErman arms industry. Yet they were found guilty of association w/ Hitler, who ...more
