Chronicle of Communal Riots in India


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA             APRIL 28, 2011                  07.30 P.M.
To begin with , I must emphasize that this not an original blog written by me. I am just reproducing few relevant tweets from the twitter handle of Mr. Pawan Durani , who is a Kashmiri Pandit and is fighting for the Homeland of Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir valley.
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Gujarat riots, though an old story now, refuses to die a natural death, or is not being permitted to die by few interested parties and some vested interests , who claim to be liberal and secular. Communal riots are bad and no one in his senses will ever support it. But fact of the matter is that riots happened in every province of India and under every regime. Even during the time of Mahatma Gandhi there were many riots including the notorious riots of Noakhali. Mahatma Gandhi tried his best to bring harmony and peace but almost failed. If Mahatma Gandhi with the moral authority , which he commanded, failed to eliminate communal virus from India, what one expects from Narendra Modi or any other leader ? Instead of helping to heal the wounds and applying balm to the grieving families, these vested interests are hellbent on keeping this festering wound of Gujarat riots open.
Narendra Modi - Chief Minister of Gujarat

The day a junior police officer claimed that he was present in the meeting , which Narendra Modi held at his official home, and heard him saying that Hindus should be allowed to vent their anger so that Muslims should be taught a lesson. Media as usual went agog with glee and Modi bashing started. No one asked this police officer that why was he silent all these years and even if Modi ordered what is being claimed by this particular police officer, why he obeyed this illegal order? isn’t it dereliction of duty?
On that very day Mr. Pawan Durani started tweeting about many communal violences , which occurred from time to time. It was interesting data and I saved it for my future research and decided to chronicle it in the form of a blog so that posterity can use it if they find it relevent.

And who has faith in you ,Mr Bhatt ? “@ibnlive: IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt: No faith in SIT appointed to probe Gujarat riots”
It is unfortunate that all these years communal violence was not prevented and it occurred with impunity under all regimes in all tha provinces of India. It is shameful and we should strive for a riot free India. I don’t think keeping alive the unfortunate memory of a decade old Gujarat riots are going to serve any purpose. But unfortunately Gujarat riots have become the source of income for some people and also a convenient tool to proclaim their secular credentials .
Gujarat riots are unfortunate and milking it by some self – proclaimed secular people for their own agenda is criminal.
