Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

India, from the other side of the fence.

“The Grass Is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Fence” . Not just the grass, from the indian side everything looks green on the other side of the fence. Blame it on the fast paced Islamization of that country. But from their side , it looks like the only color they are seeing is saffron.

Dawn.com has an article on the plight of the muslims in Gujarat and am sure that there is a good chance that the article has been “Teestalized” (Dont bother to look for the meaning of the word. I am just using it to denote all reports that are fabricated during the gujarat riots to bring a bad name to Modi and also to show a bad image of the country in front of the world. Did I mention that the reports have to be fabricated and gruesome)

Below are a few excerpts from the article.

Since 2002, when the worst riots since India’s partition left an estimated 2,000 Muslims dead in the western state of Gujarat, thousands have been pushed off the map and have little faith in the world’s largest democracy.

2000 Muslims were killed?? Really? So the hindus who were killed during the riot converted their religion to Islam after death? Well it has to be so because the total number of death itself is around 2000 if not less, so where will you account the Hindu deaths?

‘How would you feel if you have to live below a mountain of litter and drink polluted water everyday?’ said Riana Bano, a Muslim widow and mother of four girls.

We are a poor country, and that is the fate of many other people, yes including hindus, at many places around the country. We are trying to improve the situation but it does take time. And yes we do agree that the corrupt politicians are not helping one bit, but we are trying. And No its not a situation of the muslims alone.

“How to cook a false riot story” by Teetsa Setalvad

After a revelation like this why should she be out of jail?? Why is this  not being reported in the media? If she is really guilty of cooking up such stories then she should be treated the same way a a rioter is …. after all such rumours are what creates animosity during an unrest.

Look at the stories that she an her group of rights activists(should be called the left activists) has cooked up.

* A pregnant Muslim woman Kausar Banu was gangraped by a mob, who then gouged out the foetus with sharp weapons
* Dumping of dead bodies into a well by rioteers at Naroda Patiya
* Police botching up investigation into the killing of British nationals, who were on a visit to Gujarat and unfortunately got caught in the riots

All of them are macabre to the core and probably the main stories that did the rounds to target the “saffron brigade”. With people like teetsa why do you need taliban.

NEW DELHI: The Special Investigation Team responsible for the arrests of those accused in Gujarat riots has severely censured NGOs and social
activist Teesta Setalvad who campaigned for the riot victims.

In a significant development, the SIT led by former CBI director R K Raghavan told the Supreme Court on Monday that the celebrated rights activist cooked up macabre tales of wanton killings.

Many incidents of killings and violence were cooked up, false charges were levelled against then police chief P C Pandey and false witnesses were tutored to give evidence about imaginary incidents, the SIT said in a report submitted before a Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat, P Sathasivam and Aftab Alam.

The SIT said it had been alleged in the Gulbarg Society case that Pandey, instead of taking measures to protect people facing the wrath of rioteers, was helping the mob. The truth was that he was helping with hospitalisation of riot victims and making arrangements for police bandobast, Gujarat counsel, senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi, said quoting from the SIT report.

Rohtagi also said that 22 witnesses, who had submitted identical affidavits before various courts relating to riot incidents, were questioned by the SIT which found that they had been tutored and handed over the affidavits by Setalvad and that they had not actually witnessed the riot incidents.

The SIT also found no truth in the following incidents widely publicised by the NGOs:

* A pregnant Muslim woman Kausar Banu was gangraped by a mob, who then gouged out the foetus with sharp weapons

* Dumping of dead bodies into a well by rioteers at Naroda Patiya

* Police botching up investigation into the killing of British nationals, who were on a visit to Gujarat and unfortunately got caught in the riots

Rohtagi said: “On a reading of the report, it is clear that horrendous allegations made by the NGOs were false. Stereotyped affidavits were supplied by a social activist and the allegations made in them were found untrue.”

Obviously happy with the fresh findings of the SIT which was responsible for the recent arrests of former Gujarat minister Maya Kodanani and VHP leader Jaideep Patel, Rohtagi tried to spruce up the image of the Modi administration, which was castigated in the Best Bakery case by the apex court as “modern day Neros”. He was swiftly told by the Bench that but for the SIT, many more accused, who are freshly added, would not have been brought to book.

The Bench said there was no room for allegations and counter-allegations at this late stage. “In riot cases, the more the delay, there is likelihood of falsity creeping in. So, there should be a designated court to fast track the trials. Riot cases should be given priority because feelings run high having a cascading effect,” it said and asked for suggestions from the Gujarat government, Centre, NGOs and amicus curiae Harish Salve, who said the time had come for the apex court to lift the stay on trials into several post-Godhra riot cases.

While additional solicitor general Gopal Subramaniam agreed with the court that public prosecutors should be selected in consultation with Raghavan, counsel Indira Jaising said there should be a complete regime for protection of witnesses as the same government, which was accused of engineering the riots, was in power now.

Salve said that he would consult Raghavan and let the court know about a witness protection system for post-Godhra riot cases. The court asked the parties to submit their suggestions within a week.
