MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA JULY 19, 2015 09.00 P.M.
Few days back I read this post by Mr. Tapas Ranjan Baral. He posted it on the timeline of his facebook. Since Gujarat Riots of 2002 refuse to fade away from the minds of some secular, Left-Liberal intellectuals of our nation, I found Mr. Baral’s observation very interesting. Therefore I am reproducing his post verbatim on my blog.
I thank Mr. Tapas Ranjan Baral for his endeavour and express my profound gratitude for reproducing his writing without his prior permission.
Mr. Salim Khan ( father of the actor Salman Khan ) had said to a senior journalist in an interview:
“Does anyone remember who the chief minister of Maharashtra was during the Mumbai riots which were no less deadly than the Gujarat riots of 2002?
Does anyone recall the name of the chief minister of UP during
Malliana and Meerut riots or name of the Bihar CM when the Bhagalpur or Jamshedpur riots under Congress regimes took place?
Do we hear names of earlier chief ministers of Gujarat under whose
charge, hundreds of riots took place in post-Independence India?
Does anyone remember who was in-charge of Delhi’s security when the 1984 massacre of Sikhs took place in the capital of India?
How come Narendra Modi has been singled out as the Devil Incarnate as if he personally carried out all the killings during the riots of 2002?”
No speck of doubt about what Salim Khan has said.
When one says Gujarat’s agriculture growth is 10-11% since last decade, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says he made the Asia’s biggest solar plant, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says Gujarat is the only state in the whole of India to
provide 24×7 and 365 days electricity to almost all of its 18,000
villages, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says the world bank’s statement of 2011 said Gujarat roads are equivalent to international standards, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says Gujarat is the first State in country to have “high
speed wireless Broadband service in it’s all 18,000 villages,” the
other says 2002 Riots!
When one says Forbes Magazine rated Ahmadabad as the fastest growing city in India and 3rd in the world, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says Gujarat Tourism is growing faster than ever before, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says according to central govt’s Labour Bureau’s report,
Gujarat has the lowest unemployment rate in country, the other says 2002 Riots!
When Narendra Modi is being chosen as the best current Indian leader in almost all surveys polls again and again, the other says 2002 Riots!
When one says 2003-2013 are the only 10 straight years in Gujarat
history which are totally riot-free, The other STILL says 2002 Riots!
But when we remind them about riots which occurred during Congress and in Communist Party rule :
1947 Bengal …5,000 to 10,000 dead …CONGRESS RULE.
1967 Ranchi …200 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE.
1969 Ahmedabad…512 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE.
1970 Bhiwandi…80 DEAD …CONGRESS RULE.
1979 Jamshedpur…125 DEAD…CPIM RULE (COMMUNIST PARTY)
1980 Moradabad…2,000 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE.
1983 Nellie Assam …5,000 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE.
1984 anti-Sikh Delhi…2,733 DEAD …CONGRESS RULE
1984 Bhiwandi…146 DEAD …CONGRESS RULE
1985 Gujarat …300 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE
1986 Ahmedabad…59 DEAD…CONGRESS RULE
1987 Meerut …81 DEAD …CONGRESS RULE
1989 Bhagalpur…1,070 DEAD …CONGRESS RULE

they become totally deaf…because they have no answers.
Congress is a government of hypocrites. The youth of India says:
“We are NOT interested in 2002, we are interested in 2022”
I had written one more blog on April 28, 2011, where I had collected data of all the communal riots of India after independence. I am posting the link of that blog :
This is the second one.
On behalf of all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I denounce all the secular and Left-Liberal intellectuals of India. They have become restless and more strident because they know that under Narendra Modi dispensation they will be decimation in the very near future. They are fighting for their survival. So let it be.
