Increasing attacks on Hindus in India

The Shamli train incident which sent chilling reminders of Godhra The Shamli train incident which sent chilling reminders of Godhra
Written by                 

India is a Hindu majority nation but Hindus have come under attacks on several occasions in different states. This is a tragedy that the whole media covers only stories involving minorities.
In the news of attacks on minorities, Hindus are blamed. There is no coverage or analysis of attacks on the places of worship of Hinduism. Political parties take advantage of such incidents to garner support and votes from the minorities in elections. But no political party or media channel or news paper takes a stand for Hindus. The U.S. President Obama visited India and gave a sermon to protect minorities. So, the international image of our country is that minorities are not protected in India.
Hinduism faces attacks on temples, thefts, vandalism and land grab with respect to temples. How many times we come across news of attacks on temples? Or loot of temples? Or killings of Hindus? This is the time to introspect. This is the time to listen to the problems of majority community.
Let us look at the numbers:
According to a research, between 01 October 2014 and 31 March 2015, there were 145 incidents of attacks on temples in India. There has been a spread of attacks on Hindu temples across India. The states where maximum number of attacks took place are Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana and Karnataka. South India and West Bengal have witnessed the worst attacks on temples. Temples are targeted more frequently that Churches. There are so many attacks on the Hindu temples that it is not possible to cover all the news in one article.
Media coverage:
According to a research, On an average, the English media reported about 46.25 news articles per incident of attack on Christian places of worship whereas it reported a mere 2.02 news articles per incident of attack on Hindu places of worship. The given figures show that media is not religion- neutral. The same ratio also shows that the English media is unfair in its coverage.
  1. Attack on people celebrating swearing in of PM Modi:
After some BJP supporters celebrated Narendra Modi's oath-taking ceremony, they were attacked by Trinamool supporters in North 24- Parganas, West Bengal. This attack injured 22 BJP men. The Trinamool supporters had threatened them in advance not to celebrate. All the attackers were Muslims as the names suggest - Aklhtar Mollah, Majid Mollah, Karbullah etc.
  1. Killing by cow smugglers:
On 15.05.2014, in North 24 Parganas Bangladeshi cow smugglers attacked and killed Nirmal Ghosh, a constable of Rail Police. His elder brother Paran Ghosh was injured when he tried to save his brother.
  1. Communal Clash in Nadia Dist, West Bengal:
Under Kaliganj police station in Juranpur and Naoda villages, serious communal clash occurred on May 5, 2015. A Hindu religious procession was attacked in front of a mosque in Juranpur village. Reportedly 4 Hindus were killed. Villagers could not move injured Hindus to any hospital as all the roads are reportedly blocked by Muslims. This led to high number of causalities among Hindus. The incident took place after a Hindu convoy was on its way back from Dharmaraj Mela at Jamalpur in Purbasthali to their village. As they passed by a mosque in Juranpur village, they were attacked by a group of men, reportedly Muslims.
  1. Violence in Shamli:
Kandhla town in Shamli district witnessed communal tensions from May 2 to May 5, 2015. People resorted to violence in protest against the alleged assault of 5 Muslim men in a train. The crowds blocked road and rail transport and also roughed up policemen who tried to stop them. According to reports, almost 16 police personnel were injured by the Muslim mob. The Samajwadi Party MLA from Kairana, Nahid Hasan along with other locals, blocked rail and road transport to protest against the incident. The crowd even set a few vehicles parked in the station on fire. The social media and local Whatsapp groups were abuzz with messages claiming a Muslim conspiracy to perform “another Godhra” in Shamli. The crowd threw stones at trains at Kandhla after which the Railway Police had to resort to lathi charge. In past too there have been many incidents of attacking the Hindus:
Targeting Hindu women and rapes:
In many Muslim dominated cities like Bhopal and Meerut Hindu women are dragged into cars and are raped. They are returned after two three days when these poor females are totally worn out. In most of the cases people do not report to police to avoid more trouble. When a nun is raped the whole media stands out for covering such a news but when it comes to Hindu girls strangely, no media is interested even in reporting such an incident.
  1. On 28.05.2014, 11 year old Hindu girl was gang raped by Motahar Seikh, Bapan Seikh and Pande Seikh, all residents of Bahadidanga village.
  2. On 16.05.2014, one Hindu housewife aged 25 years was kidnapped and raped for 5 days by Sabid Ali, Usuf Ali and Pochu Mohammad in the house of Mir Mohammad.
  3. On 20.05.2014. in Dattapara village, North 24 Parganas a newlywed Hindu woman was raped by Baharuddin & Saiful. Her husband works in Dubai. Now he is reluctant to accept her back. The incident took place when she was at her widowed mother’s house.
  4. On 29.04.2014, in North 24 Parganas there was a gang rape of a 15 year old SC Hindu girl. The accused were Osman Mollah and his 5 other goons. Before raping her, the Muslim miscreants looted Rs.20,000 cash, gold ornaments, 2 water pumps and other expensive items.
  5. Hindus deprived of last rites in West Bengal:
In this Hindu majority nation, Hindu organizations are seen with deep rooted suspicions. They are some times called “Hindu militants”. In West Bengal the Hindus are denied their rights of cremation in a 200 yrs old Shamshan Ghat solely possessed and owned by the Hindus. Muslims of the state are trying to grab the land of Arjunpur Hindu cremation place step by step.
  1. Attack on Funeral Party:
On 10.05.2014 in Murshidabad local Muslims attacked a Funeral Party from Hajarpur village with bombs and gunfire. Bikash Pal and Kesto Pal were injured. The party had to flee abandoning the half-cremated body of late Biren Pal to save their lives. The Muslims want to encroach the Hindu burning ghat at the Arjunpur village. Muslims threw the half burnt body in the Ganges.
Police did not make even a single arrest in the case. Police issued an instruction to Hindus to give information about any death in the locality so that Police may accompany with the dead body for safe cremation at Arjunpur Shamshan ghat. In other incidents of cremations, Muslims pelted stones on Hindus and Police could do nothing. Now the Hindus cremate bodies in other far away places.
  1. Attack on Basanti Puja festival:
On 09.04.2014, in Dhalaghat village, South Dinajpur, Muslims attacked the Basanti Puja festival. They also broke the Basanti deity by kicking it. Muslims ransacked the Puja pandal, fractured Dilip Murmu’s head, injured many persons, and molested women. All victims were Hindus belonging to the ST. Notorious Anikul Islam, Sadikul Islam and Minarul Islam led the rampaging mob. There are hundreds of such cases to breaking the idols but all cases are not reported.
  1. On 29.03.2014 in Dist. South 24 Parganas, a renowned businessman and leading personality of Hindu society Kartick Methia was brutally murdered by Muslim goons of Md. Raja Seikh. Kartick Methia was leading local Hindus to resist the effort of illegal construction of a mosque on a Hindu ground named “Raasmath”.

  1. The issue of marrying Hindu girls:
A very serious problem all across the country is Muslims marrying Hindu girls. In many cases when the girls refused to marry, they were attacked with blades and acid attacks. In many cities girls are directly abducted and forced in to marriage. According to an estimate the TMC government has been paying more than 30,000 imams in the state Rs. 2500 per month and over 15,000 muezzins Rs. 1500. Burning crores of tax payers’ money mostly collected from Hindus.
  1. Durgapuja procession attack:
In 2013, in Dist – Birbhum of West Bengal, armed Muslims provoked by loudspeakers of the local mosque attacked Durgapuja immersion procession.

  1. Cow slaughter:
In 2013 in a provocative move, about 5-6 Muslim families slaughtered five cows for the first time in the presence of the BDO and Police. Hindus protested. In retaliation Shajahan Seikh’s goons ransacked Hindu shops at Rampur Bazar and beat up Hindus.
  1. Attack on temple in Agra:
In April this year, a 50-year-old temple was attacked by unknown youth. The temple was situated at Syedpara area in Lohamandi police station area of Agra. In this attack valuable ornaments of Goddess Durga and Parvati were stolen. The idols including the Shiv Ling were damaged. The damaged idols were taken into custody and replicas of them were ordered to be placed in the temple. The culprits are still to be nabbed.
  1. Attack on Shiv Ratri:
In another incident in March 2013, two Shiva temples were attacked on Shiv Ratri and the idols of the temples were damaged. This attack also took place in Agra. Again, in Sita Nagar, a Shiva temple was attacked, where the idols were broken and thrown into the Yamuna river. Even in this case no arrests were made.
  1. Attack on priests in Chennai:
This year two temple priests were attacked in Chennai. Their poonal (sacred thread) was cut. Police arrested six men in connection with the attacks. Some aged priests were beaten and thrown on roads for being associated with Hindu temples.
  1. Amarnath pilgrimage massacre:
In this massacre, around 30 -40 Hindu pilgrims were killed by Kashmiri separatist militants. The pilgrims were on their way to Amarnath cave temple on annual pilgrimage. Militants struck again killing 27 labourers hailing from UP, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh in two separate attacks at Mirbazar-Qazigund and Sandoo-Acchabal in Anantnag district. Another group of militants struck in Sandoo-Acchabal where they shot dead seven brick-kiln labourers after segregating them from women and children. Such selective killings of Hindus have not got their deserved space in media coverage.
  1. 2001 Kishtwar massacre:
2001 Kishtwar massacre was the killing of 17 Hindu villagers in village Ladder near Kishtwar in Doda District of Jammu and Kashmir by militants of Lashkar-e-Taiba on 3 August 2001. A group of 10 militants swooped on the village and dragged 20 males belonging to the Hindu community out of their houses. They were taken to the adjacent rocky mountain belt and shot dead. Similar treatment was awarded to Kashmiri Pandits in the valley. They were threatened from the loudspeakers of the local mosques. They were ordered to leave the valley or face the consequences. Selective killings of Hindus and slaughtering of cows belonging to Hindus forced Kashmiri Pandits to leave the valley. Issue of Kashmiri Pandits is such a big issue that it needs a separate article on this issue.
  1. 2013 Canning riots:
In 2013 Canning riots of West Bengal again Hindus were targeted. Muslim mobs burned down more than 200 Hindu houses in the villages of Naliakhali, Herobhanga, Gopalpur and Goladogra villages in Canning police station area. Around 24 Hindu-owned shops were looted after a Muslim cleric was killed by unidentified assailants.
  1. State sponsored riots against Hindus in West Bengal:
In Jan. 2015, Muslims vandalized Hindu areas and businesses in West Bengal with the help of a State Minister Giyasuddin Molla. Hindus were under attack from organized Muslim mobs in Usthi Bazar, Kuleshwar, Deyarak, Nainan, Deaula, Gholar more, Bholerhat, Mandir Bazar, Hatugunj,and other adjacent areas. Muslims were instigated to join the rioting through Masjid loudspeakers. Hindu shops were looted, ransacked, and gutted.
On many occasions, Hindu festivals and poojas are attacked by Muslims of the state. In 2013, a Durgapuja immersion procession was attacked by armed Muslims provoked by loudspeakers of the local mosque.
  1. Acid attacks on Hindus in M.P.:
In April this year, at least 25 people suffered heavy injuries including 10 of severe acid burns at Jawad town in Madhya Pradesh’s Neemuch district when some Jihadi miscreants pelted stones and threw acid bulbs at a Hindu religious procession being taken out on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti. The incident happened when the procession reached Khurra Chowk Mosque where Muslim miscreants targeted the Hindu people in procession from different sides. Heavy violence flared up, with Muslim mob setting fire to residential buildings, vehicles and the shops which left many people, including police personnel, injured.
  1. Cow stealing:
In an incident on 30.03.2014 in Dist. Malda a Muslim thief was caught red handed while stealing a cow from a Hindu house. But a Muslim mob of 200 led by local Congress leader Zakir Hossein attacked the village Sihipur inhabited by SC Hindus. More than 40 Hindus were injured, women were molested, money and valuables were looted by the Muslim mob. There are many such cases when Muslims steal cows and smuggle them to Bangladesh for slaughter.
  1. Clashes in Lucknow:
On May 30, 2015, tension prevailed in Lucknow after Hindus and Muslims clashed with each other. Heavy police force was deployed at the spot. Police said a function on bhajans was being held at a Hanuman temple in the area where the organisers also distributed sherbet to devotees. Initially, the quarrel started when local Muslims objected to the use of loudspeaker at the temple at the time of azaan for Friday prayers. Later there was a fight due to left over glasses. The two groups were soon joined by others from their communities and both sides reportedly opened fire.
  1. Looting of temples:
In Barabanki, in Feb. 2015, Hindu temple was looted. Three 'ashtdhatu' and five brass idols worth crores of rupees were stolen from a 200-year-old temple. Similarly, in 2014 the 17th century priceless idols of Lord Raghunath along with four other idols were stolen from a temple in Kullu. About 10 kg of silver ornaments and 1 kg gold ornaments were also missing.
In March this year, three people came in the grab of devotees and robbed 11 panchaloha idols from Papagni temple in Chikkaballapur.
In Jan. 2015, miscreants stole 'ashtadhatu' idols of Lord Ram and Sita worth Rupees one crore from a temple in Katihar district of Bihar. The idols were around 90 years old.
In 2014, two antique idols of Goddess Saraswati and Durga were stolen from Karnataka’s Nageswar Temple. The idols were stolen from the 800-year-old temple.
In April this year, six brass idols and a spear were stolen from the 1,000-year-old Adhi Ratneswarar temple at Tiruvadanai in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu. But no arrests have been made in this case.
There are thousands of such cases of loot in Hindu temples. But rarely, we have come across any concrete action taken by the police. When any church is attacked it makes front page headlines in all papers. Ask yourself about how many looted Hindu temples do you know? No body knows about any investigation in these cases. Such is the pathetic state of affairs when it comes to “Hindus of Hindustan.”

वैधानिक चेतावनी : ये पोस्ट आपका मानसिक संतुलन बिगाड़ सकती है
इसलिये इस न पढ़ेँ इसे पढ़कर पागल होने वाले किसी भी ठलुये के प्रति मेरी
की कोई जबावदेही नहीँ होगी !
यह सच हर हिंदू को पता होना चाहिए... एक बार इसे पढ़े जरुर.....
दरअसल ..... जहाँ देखो वहाँ गुजरात के दंगो के बारे में ही सुनने और देखने
को मिलता है... फिर चाहे वो गूगल हो या फेसबुक .. हो या फिर
टीवी...! रोज नए-नए खुलासे हो रहे हैं.....रोज गुजरात की सरकार को कटघरे
में खड़ा किया जाता है...!
असल में.....सबका निशाना केवल एक नरेन्द्र भाई मोदी.....क्योंकि, वे हम
हिन्दुओं के चहेते हैं... जिस कारण मुस्लिम तथा सेकुलर जी- जान से इस काम में
जुटे हैं...! जिसे देखो... वो अपने को जज दिखाता है.... हर कोई सेकुलरता के
नाम पर एक ही स्वर में गुजरात दंगो की भर्त्सना करते हैं.....
हालाँकि, मै भी दंगो को गलत मानता हूँ क्योंकि दंगे सिर्फ दर्द दे कर
जाते हैं ...!
लेकिन...... सबसे बड़ा सवाल यह है कि.....गुजरात दंगा हुआ क्यों..........? 27
फरवरी २००२ को साबरमती ट्रेन के S6 बोगी को गोधरा रेलवे स्टेशन से
करीब 826 मीटर की दुरी पर जला दिया गया था....जिसमे 57 मासूम,
निहत्थे और निर्दोष हिन्दू कारसेवकों की मौत हो गयी थी... ! प्रथम
द्रष्टा रहे वहाँ के 14 पुलिस के जवान जो उस समय स्टेशन पर मौजूद थे.. और
उनमे से 3 पुलिस वाले घटना स्थल पर पहुंचे और साथ ही पहुंचे अग्नि शमन दल के
एक जवान सुरेशगिरी गोसाई जी....! अगर हम इन चारो लोगों की मानें
"म्युनिसिपल काउंसिलर हाजी बिलाल" भीड़ को आदेश दे रहे थे.... ट्रेन के
इंजन को जलाने का......! साथ ही साथ.... जब ये जवान आगबुझाने
की कोशिश कर रहे थे..... तब भीड़ के द्वारा ट्रेन पर पत्थरबाजी चालू कर
दी गई ......!
अब इसके आगे बढ़ कर देखें तो....
जब गोधरा पुलिस स्टेशन की टीम पहुंची तब 2 लोग 10 ,000 की भीड़
को उकसा रहे थे.... ये थे म्युनिसिपल प्रेसिडेंट मोहम्मद कलोटा और
म्युनिसिपल काउंसिलर हाजी बिलाल.....!अब सवाल उठता है कि.....
मोहम्मद कलोटा और हाजी बिलाल को किसने उकसाया और ये ट्रेन
को जलाने क्यों गए......?????
सवालो के बाढ़ यही नहीं रुकते हैं..... बल्कि सवालो की लिस्ट
अभी काफी लम्बी है......
अब सवाल उठता है कि .... क्यों मारा गया ऐसे राम भक्तो को......???
कुछ मीडिया ने बताया की ये मुसलमानों को उकसाने वाले नारे
लगा रहे….अब क्या कोई बताएगा कि ..... क्या भगवान राम के भजन
मुसलमानों को उकसाने वाले लगते हैं......?????
लेकिन इसके पहले भी एक हादसा हुआ 27 फ़रवरी 2002 को सुबह 7 .43 मिनट 4
घंटे की देरी से जैसे ही साबरमती ट्रेन चली और प्लेटफ़ॉर्म छोड़ा तो...
प्लेटफ़ॉर्म से 100 मीटर की दुरी पर ही 1000 लोगो की भीड़ ने ट्रेन पर
पत्थर चलाने चालूकर दिए .....! पर, यहाँ रेलवे की पुलिस ने भीड़ को तितर-
बितर कर दिया और ट्रेन को आगे के लिए रवाना कर दिया.....!
लेकिन, जैसे ही ट्रेन मुश्किल से 800 मीटर चली...... अलग-अलग बोगियों से
कई बार चेन खींची गई....! बाकी की कहानी जिस पर
बीती उसकी जुबानी.......... उस समय मुश्किल से से
15-16 की बच्ची की जुबानी......... ये बच्ची थी कक्षा 11 में पढने
वाली गायत्री पंचाल जो कि उस समय अपने परिवार के साथ
अयोध्या से लौट रही थी .... उसकी मानें तो... ट्रेन में राम धुनचल
रहा था और ट्रेनजैसे ही गोधरा से आगे बढ़ी ..... एक दम से चेन खींच कर रोक
दिया गया ...! उसके बाद देखने में आया कि ... एक भीड़ हथियारों से लैस
हो कर ट्रेन की तरफ बढ़ रही है.....! हथियार भी कैसे....... लाठी-
डंडा नहीं बल्कि.... तलवार, गुप्ती, भाले, पेट्रोल बम्ब, एसिड बम और
पता नहीं क्या क्या.........! भीड़ को देख कर ट्रेन में सवार यात्रियों ने
खिड़की और दरवाजे बंद कर लिए.......! पर भीड़ में से जो अन्दर घुस आए
थे ...वो कार सेवको को मार रहे थे और उनके सामानों को लूट रहे थे और
साथ ही बाहर खड़ी भीड़ मारो -काटो के नारे लगा रही थी....! एक
लाउड स्पीकर जो कि पास के मस्जिद पर था.उससे बार बार ये आदेश
दिया जा रहा था कि ..... “मारो... काटो.. लादेन ना दुश्मनों ने
मारो” ! इसके साथ ही.... साथ ही बहार खड़ी भीड़ ने पेट्रोल डाल कर
आग लगाना चालू कर दिया... जिससे कोई जिन्दा ना बचे....! ट्रेन
की बोगी में चारो तरफ पेट्रोल भरा हुआ था....! दरवाजे बाहर से बंद कर
दिए गए थे , ताकि कोई बाहर ना निकल सके...! एस-6 और एस-7 के वैक्यूम
पाइप काट दिए गए थे ...... ताकि ट्रेन आगे बढ़ ही नहीं सके......! जो लोग
जलती ट्रेन से किसी प्रकार बाहर निकल भी गए तो.... उन्हें तेज
हथियारों से काट दिया गया .... कुछ गहरे घाव की वजह से वहीँ मारे गए
और कुछ बुरी तरह घायल हो गए....!
अब सवाल उठता है कि.... हिन्दुओं ने सुबह 8 बजे ही दंगा क्यों नहीं शुरू कर
किया बल्कि हिन्दू उस दिन दोपहर तक शांत बना रहा (ये बात आज तक
किसी को नहीं दिखी है)....????????
असल में..... हिन्दुओं ने जवाब देना तब चालू किया जब उनके घरों , गावों ,
मोहल्लो में वो जली और कटी फटी लाशें पहुंची......!
क्या ये लाशें हिन्दुओं को को मुसलमानों की तरफ से गिफ्ट
थी जो हिन्दुओं को शांत बैठना चाहिए था .....
सेकुलर बन कर ???????
हिन्दू सड़क पर उतरे 27 फ़रवरी 2002 की दोपहर से.....! पुरे एक दिन हिन्दू
शांति से घरो में बैठे रहे....| अगर वो दंगा हिन्दुओं ने या मोदी ने
करना था तो 27 फ़रवरी 2002 की सुबह 8 बजे से ही क्यों नहीं चालू
मोदी ने 28 फ़रवरी 2002 की शाम को ही आर्मी को सडको पर लाने
का आदेश दिया जो कि अगले ही दिन १ मार्च २००२ को हो गया और
सडको पर आर्मी उतर आयी ..... गुजरात को जलने से बचाने के लिए....! पर
भीड़ के आगे आर्मी भी कम पड़ रही थी तो १ मार्च २००२ को ही मोदी ने
अपने पडोसी राज्यों से सुरक्षा कर्मियों की मांग करी...!
ये पडोसी राज्य थे महाराष्ट्र (कांग्रेस शासित- विलास राव देशमुख -
मुख्य मंत्री), मध्य प्रदेश (कांग्रेस शासित- दिग्विजय सिंह -मुख्य मंत्री),
राजस्थान (कांग्रेस शासित- अशोक गहलोत- मुख्य मंत्री) और पंजाब
(कांग्रेस शासित- अमरिंदर सिंह मुख्य मंत्री) ...! क्या कभी किसी ने
भी.......... इन माननीय मुख्यमंत्रियों से एक बार भी पुछा है कि ........ अपने
सुरक्षाकर्मी क्यों नहीं भेजे गुजरात में जबकि गुजरात ने आपसे
सहायता मांगी थी..........??????? या ये एक सोची समझी गूढ़
राजनितिक विद्वेष का परिचायक था.... इन प्रदेशो के
मुख्यमंत्रियों का गुजरात को सुरक्षा कर्मियों का ना भेजना...????
उसी 1 मार्च 2002 को हमारे राष्ट्रीय मानवाधिकार (National Human
Rights) वालो ने मोदी को अल्टीमेटम दिया ३ दिन में पुरे घटनाक्रम
का रिपोर्ट पेश करने के लिए ...! लेकिन... कितने आश्चर्य की बात है कि...
यही राष्ट्रीय मानवाधिकार वाले २७ फ़रवरी २००२ और २८ फ़रवरी २००२
को गायब रहे ..... इन मानवाधिकार वालो ने तो पहले दिन के ट्रेन के फूंके
जाने पर ये रिपोर्ट भी नहीं माँगा कि क्या कदम उठाया गया गुजरात
सरकार के द्वारा...!
एक ऐसे ही सबसे बड़े घटना क्रम में दिखाए गए या कहे तो बेचे गए........
“गुलबर्ग सोसाइटी” के जलने की.......
इस गुलबर्ग सोसाइटी ने पुरे मीडिया का ध्यान अपने तरफ खींच लिया |
यहाँ एक पूर्व सांसद एहसान जाफरी साहब रहते थे......! इन महाशय
का ना तो एक भी बयान था २७ फरवरी २००२ को और ना ही ये डरे थे उस
समय तक.......! लेकिन...... जब २८ फरवरी २००२ की सुबह जब कुछ लोगो ने इनके
घर को घेरा जिसमे कुछ तथाकथित मुसलमान भी छुपे हुए थे..... तो एहसान
जाफरी जी ने भीड़ पर गोली चलवा दिया ........ अपने लोगो से जिसमे 2
हिन्दू मरे और 13 हिन्दू गंभीर रूप से घायल हो गए.....! जब इस घटनाक्रम के
बाद इनके घर पर भीड़ बढ़ने लगी तो ये अपने यार-दोस्तों को फ़ोन करने लगे
और तभी गैस सिलिंडर के फटने से कुल 42 लोगों की मौत हो गयी....!
यहाँ शायद भीड़ के आने पर ही एहसान साहब को पुलिस को फ़ोन
करना चाहिए था ना कि खुद के बन्दों के द्वारा गोली चलवाना चाहिए
था....! पर इन्होने गोली चलाने के बाद फ़ोन किया डाइरेक्टर जेनेरल ऑफ़
पुलिस (DGP ) को......!
यहाँ एक और झूठ सामने आया..... जब अरुंधती रॉय जैसी लेखिका तक ने
यहाँ तक लिख दिया कि ... एहसान जाफरी की बेटी को नंगा करके
बलात्कार के बाद मारा गया और साथ ही एहसान जाफरी को भी.....!
लेकिन.....यहाँ एहसान जाफरी के बड़े बेटे ने ही पोल खोल दी कि .... जिस
दिन उसके पिता की जान गई उस दिन उसकी बहन तो अमेरिका में थी और
अभी भी रहती है.....! तो यहाँ.......... कौन किसको झूठे केस में
फंसाना चाह रहा है ये साफ़ है....! अब यहाँ तक
तो सही था..............पर............. गोधरा में साबरमती को कैसे इस दंगे से
अलग किया जाता और हिन्दुओं को इसके लिए आरोपित
किया जाता ...! इसके लिए लोग गोधरा के दंगे को ऐसे तो संभाल
नहीं सकते थे ...अपने शब्दों से....
तो एक कहानी प्रकाश में आई.....! कहानी थी कि ....कारसेवक
गोधरा स्टेशन पर चाय पीने उतरे और चाय देने वाला जो कि एक मुसलमान
था उसको पैसे नहीं दिए… जबकि गुजराती अपनी ईमानदारी के लिए
ही जाने जाते हैं…! चलिए छोडिये ये धर्मान्धो की कहानी में
कभी दिखेगा ही नहीं....
आगे बढ़ते हैं...|
अब कारसेवको ने पैसा तो दिया नहीं बल्कि मुसलमान की दाढ़ी खींच
कर उसको मारने लगे तभी उस बूढ़े मुसलमान की बेटी जो की 16 साल
की बताई गई वो आई तो कारसेवको ने उसको बोगी में खींच कर
बोगी का दरवाजा अन्दर से बंद कर लिया ..! और इसीके के प्रतिफल
में.......मुसलमानों ने ट्रेन में आग लगा दी और 58 लोगो को मार दिया.....
जिन्दा जलाकर या काट कर.....!
अब अगर इस मनगढ़ंत कहानी को मान भी लें तो कई सवाल उठते हैं:-
क्या उस बूढ़े मुसलमान चाय वाले ने रेलवे पुलिस
को इत्तिला किया...??????? रेलवे पुलिस उस ट्रेन को वहाँ से जाने
नहीं देती या लड़की को उतार लिया जाता..... उस बूढ़े चाय वाले ने 27
फ़रवरी 2002 को कोई FIR क्यों नहीं दाखिल किया...????? 5 मिनट में
ही सैकड़ो लीटर पेट्रोल और इतनी बड़ी भीड़ आखिर जुटी कैसे....????????
सुबह 8 बजे सैकड़ो लीटर पेट्रोल आखिर आया कहाँ से...................?????????
एक भी केस 27 फ़रवरी २००२ की तारीख में मुसलमानों के
द्वारा क्यों नहीं दाखिल हुआ..........??????? अब रेलवे पुलिस कि जांच में
ये बात सामने आई कि ...... उस दिन गोधरा स्टेसन पर कोई ऐसी घटना हुई
ही नहीं थी...! ना तो चाय वाले के साथ कोई झगडा हुआ था और
ना ही किसी लड़की के साथ में कोई बदतमीजी या अपहरण
की घटना हुई.....!
इसके बाद आयी नानावती रिपोर्ट में कहा गया है कि .... जमीअत-
उलमा-इ-हिंद का हाथ था उन 58 लोगो के जलने में और ट्रेन के जलने में....!
उससे भी बड़ी बात कि.....दंगे में 720 मुसलमान मरे तो 250 हिन्दू भी मरे.....!
मुसलमानों के मरने का सभी शोक मनाते हैं........चाहे वो सेकुलर हिन्दू हो....
चाहे वो मुसलमान हो या चाहे वो राजनेता या मीडिया हो ! पर दंगे में
250 मरे हुए हिन्दुओं और साबरमती ट्रेन में मरे ५८ हिंदुवो को कोई
नहीं पूछता है....कोई बात तक नहीं करता है ..! सभी को केवल मरे हुए
मुसलमान ही दिखते हैं...!
एक और बात काबिले गौर है क्या किसी भी मुस्लिम लीडर का बयान
आया था साबरमती ट्रेन के जलने पर....??????? क्या किसी मुस्लिम लीडर
ने साबरमती ट्रेन को चिता बनाने के लिए खेद प्रकट किया.....?????????
इसीलिए सच को जानिए...... और जो भी गुजरात दंगे की बात करे
अथवा नरेन्द्र मोदी के बारे में बोले....... उसे उसी की भाषा में जबाब दें....!
गुजरात दंगा..... मुस्लिमों के द्वारा शुरू किया गया था..... और हम
हिन्दुओं को उनसे इस बात का जबाब मांगना चाहिए..... और उन्हें
जिम्मेदार ठहराना चाहिए....!
अथवा... क्या वे लाशें हिन्दुओं को को मुसलमानों की तरफ से गिफ्ट
थी जो हिन्दुओं को शांत बैठना चाहिए था .....?????? जय महाकाल...!!!
स्रोत: जय हिंद हिन्दू भारत का लेख... dated 2 may 2012 नोट: इस पोस्ट
को इतना शेयर करें कि..... मुस्लिमों और सेकुलरों की बोलती बंद
हो जाए..... तथा हिन्दुओं के बच्चे-बच्चे की जुबान पर ये सच आ जाये......
जय महाकाल

Godhra Junction

Nicole ElfiA study of the masterminds behind the Godhra riots

In May this year, the people of India chose their Prime Minister. Over twelve years, several inquiry commissions — the Tewatia Committee (2010), the Nanavati Commission (2008), the Special Investigation Team (2011) under the Supreme Court — cleared Narendra Modi of all charges of having masterminded or, at least, encouraged the Godhra riots.[1]
Still, his detractors — politicians and ideology-driven activists in India, the US and Europe — have continued to label him “merchant of death”, “butcher”, “Nazi”, “fascist”, “murderer”, etc. Let us examine the facts and see whether they can point to the riot’s real mastermind.

Haji BilalThe Role of Congress Members

On 27 February 2002, when a coach of Hindu pilgrims returning from Ayodhya went up in flames at Godhra railway station, a Congress member of the Godhra municipality, Haji Balal, led a mob and stopped the fire-fighting vehicle on its way to the station. The fire crew reported that “he had been visiting the fire station at night for the past few days on the pretext of watching films on television.” Haji Balal, a few days earlier, had the clutch plates of one of the main fire-fighting vehicles removed; in the second vehicle, the nut connecting the pipe to the water tank was spirited away.[2]
Haji Balal who, according to locals, proudly proclaimed himself the “Bin Laden of Godhra”, is among eleven people convicted for criminal conspiracy and murder and sentenced to death by a special fast track court in the high-security Sabarmati Central Jail in Ahmedabad on 22 February 2011.[3]
Other Congress members were also “booked for the carnage”.[4] The attack on the pilgrims was carried out “according to what was planned earlier under the directions of [the late] Maulvi Umarji”,[5] a religious leader of the Ghanchi Muslims of Godhra.[6] “All the acts like procuring petrol, circulating false rumour, stopping the train and entering in coach S/6 were in pursuance of the object of the conspiracy,” concluded the Nanavati Report. “The conspiracy hatched by these persons further appears to be a part of a larger conspiracy to create terror and destabilise the Administration.”[7]
“Destabilise the Administration”: Narendra Modi had assumed office as Gujarat Chief Minister on 7 October 2001, four months earlier. Incidentally, Maulvi Umarji got a ticket to campaign for the Congress in December 2002 state election in Gujarat.
In order to quickly gather a crowd of angry Muslims to the Godhra station and attack the train, so that no one would guess who was pouring petrol in the S6 and S7 coaches, rumours that a Ghanchi Muslim girl had been abducted by the Kar Sevaks were spread by the Jamiat-Ulema-E-Hind (JUH), a long-standing ally of the Congress.[8]
Narendra ModiFrom the start of the crisis, Narendra Modi appealed to the people to remain calm and exert self-control. On five occasions between 27 and 28 February, “CM addressed Media, Assembly and General public and everywhere the genesis and intention was one and the same, to punish the culprits responsible for the Godhra incident in an exemplary manner, so that it did not recur ever again.”[9] He announced an ex-gratia payment of 200,000 rupees to the next of kin of those killed in the Godhra incident and ordered a high-level inquiry into the incident.[10]
On 1st March, less than two days after the tragedy and while riots were raging, Modi requested the chief secretaries of neighbouring states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan to send ten companies of armed police from each state to assist the government in “handling law and order situation”. As the sociologist and author Madhu Kishwar points out,[11] all three states then had Congress governments, and all three turned down the request.

Teesta Sitalwad & Javed AnandThe Campaign

Let us recall that the BJP-led NDA alliance had been in power at the Centre since 1998, confirmed by fresh elections in 1999. A 15-million-rupee campaign by journalist-activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand, funded by the Congress Party and Communists to “politically isolate the BJP”,[12] failed to convince the Indian people, who voted the BJP to power. And the crusaders had to swallow the obvious — that the streets of India remained peaceful during the NDA regime.[13]
They however found a fertile ground in the US, especially with the evangelical lobbies.[14] On 1st April 2002 Teesta Setalvad created “Citizens for Justice and Peace” (CJP), an NGO “outsourced by the Congress to the job of attacking Modi”, as Madhu Kishwar put it.[15] The activists approached the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a U.S. government-funded body, with known roots in the evangelical movement, whose “original intention was to protect Christians around the world … to review facts and circumstances of violations of religious freedom internationally — and to make policy recommendations to the President, Secretary of State, and the Congress”.[16] Testifying before the USCIRF, Teesta Setalvad alleged that the BJP had conducted: 
successful pogroms and attacks against the countries religious minorities, … recent state-sponsored Genocide of the Muslim Community in Gujarat … Brutal destruction of life, through rape, quartering of bodies, urinating on them and incarcerating [sic] them so that there is no trace or evidence of their remains … desecrating over 270 religious and cultural shrines belonging to the community … through systematic planning and targeted action by armed militias ideologically driven by the vision of a supreme and exclusive Hindu rashtra (state). … Over 2,000 lost their lives, 500 are missing and 250-300 girls and women were gang-raped before being quartered, burned and killed.[17]
This “testimony” from India is what fed countless self-styled human rights organizations and intellectuals in India and in the West. They drank in Setalvad’s words and regurgitated them as articles and “reports” with a plethora of gory details.
As regards the number of riot victims, invariably quoted in thousands, the then Police Commissioner P.C. Pande, in a statement to the Special Investigating Team, declared, 
… it was incorrect to say that 1000 people lost their lives in Ahmedabad City during the riots of 2002, whereas the actual number of deaths between February 28th 2002 and April 30th 2002 was 442, of whom 113 were Hindus and 329 Muslims. … All offences committed were duly and properly registered including by sending police officers to relief camps and therefore, no important crime remained unregistered.[18]
According to the Congress-led UPA government’s statement in Parliament on 11 May 2005, the final figures of those killed in the Godhra riots are 790 Muslims and 254 Hindus.[19] In any case, the endlessly repeated figure of “2000 Muslim victims” has no basis in actual fact.

Sanjiv Bhatt IPSThe SIT and Sanjeev Bhatt

Facts cannot so easily be wished away. And they were nailed by the Nanavati Report and the Supreme Court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT), headed by former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chief R.K. Raghavan in response to a petition filed by Jakia Nasim, Ehsan Jafri’s[20] widow, and Teesta Setalvad, which alleged criminal conspiracy by Narendra Modi’s government.[21] Jakia Nasim’s testimony before the Nanavati Commission and Supreme Court in 2002 and 2003 was that “the mob would have lynched all of them but for the
timely action by the police”. Four years later, her praise turned into complaint — except that the poor lady was not even aware of what she complained or petitioned about: “She has no personal knowledge of the allegations mentioned in the affidavits filed by R.B. Sreekumar during the years 2002, 2004 and 2005 on his own”, said the SIT.[22]
Let us explain: The SIT, appointed on 23 March 2008, investigated two retired Indian Police Service (IPS) officers, one of them being R.B. Sreekumar just mentioned, to whom we will shortly return. The second one, Sanjeev Bhatt, then Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence in the Gujarat government, claimed after years of silence that he was present at a law and order meeting convened
by the Chief Minister on 27 February night at his residence. At this meeting, which lasted 15-20 minutes, Sanjeev Bhatt claims that the Chief Minister said that “for too long the Gujarat police had been following the approach of balancing the action against Hindus and Muslims … that the situation warranted that the Muslims be taught a lesson, … it was imperative that Hindus
be allowed to vent out their anger….”[23]
As it turned out, none of the officials present even remembered the presence of Sanjeev Bhatt. Interrogated independently later, they denied any such talk by the Chief Minister, who, they asserted, said instead that the Godhra flare-up was very unfortunate and should be handled with a firm hand. The discussions centred around maintenance of law and order in view of the call for a bandh on the next day and the availability of forces. Ahmedabad Police Commissioner P.C. Pandey categorically stated that no instructions to allow any freedom to law-breakers were given by the Chief Minister. According to Prakash S. Shah, then Additional Secretary (Law & Order), the Chief Minister instructed all the officers that “communal peace and harmony be maintained at all costs and all possible steps be taken to control the possible communal flare-up.”[24] 
As for Sanjeev Bhatt’s testimony, the SIT called fax messages produced by him “not genuine”, “forged document, fabricated subsequently by someone with a vested interest.”[25] “This conduct of Shri Sanjiv [sic] Bhatt in arranging, prompting and controlling the witness [a witness produced by him] to corroborate his statement is highly suspicious and undesirable.”[26] And from the location of his mobile phone, his claim of being present at the said meeting at the Chief Minister’s residence proved to be false. “Shri Sanjiv Bhatt is a tainted witness and therefore, cannot be relied upon keeping in view his background in the police department as he was involved in criminal cases of serious nature and departmental inquiries are also in progress against him.”[27] Cases against him included inflicting torture in custody leading to death, abduction, extortion and unprovoked firing, killings and planting narcotics with a view to blackmail. SIT head R.K. Raghavan concluded that Bhatt had lied and brought in tutored witnesses to falsely implicate Modi.[28] The Gujarat Vigilance Commission recommended his suspension twice (on 15-07-2002 and 19-10-2006) for professional misconduct, but each time he managed to evade prosecution.[29] 
A last brush stroke on Sanjeev Bhatt’s erratic comportment is given by senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani in a Sunday Guardian article. The man “handed over charge and his official computer, leaving all his emails in an unprotected mode for all to read”… The state government forwarded the material to the SIT for investigations, and thanks to this irresponsible gesture, authorities harvested details of his “hobnobbing with the Opposition Congress party in a thoroughly illegal and almost seditious manner to concoct evidence against the Chief Minister and the state of Gujarat”. To this end Bhatt was in constant touch with top Congress party leaders, from whom he received not only guidance, but “packages” and “materials”, as per his own statement.[30]

Teesta SetalvadAn Activist’s Career

Activist Teesta Setalvad built a successful career on the Godhra issue and on demonizing Narendra Modi, for which she has been covered with national and international awards. Let us mention just a few: 
• In August 2002, the Rajiv Gandhi National Sadbhavana [Communal Harmony] Award instituted by the Congress (I), jointly with Harsh Mander (former IAS officer and NAC board member),[31] “for their outstanding contribution towards communal harmony and national integration”. 
• In 2003, the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award (jointly with Ibn Abdur Rehman, a Pakistani “peace and human-rights advocate and veteran communist from Pakistan”).[32] 
• The New York-based Parliamentarians for Global Action’s 2004 Defenders’ of Democracy Award, for her efforts “to ensure justice for the victims of the genocide in Gujarat. 
• In 2006, the Nani Palkhivala Award. In her acceptance speech, Setalvad was all praise for an IPS officer to whom she dedicates her award, someone “who stood mighty in the face of a murderous and vindictive Gujarat administration.”[33] 
• In 2007, the Padma Shri Award from the Government of India, which since May 2004 had been run by a Congress-led coalition. – Scribd, 2014
