A special panel probing the 2002 Gujarat riots has given a clean to Chief Minister Narendra Modi, absolving the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader of the accusation that he had a role in a case related to the communal carnage.


Metropolitan magistrate M.S. Bhatt, who received the closure report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in February, in his order said the investigators have found no evidence against any of the accused, including Modi, in the 2002 Gulberg Society massacre, one of the cases related to the widespread riots 10 years ago.

Zakia Jafri, wife of the slain Congress leader Ehsaan Jafri who was killed by a rioting mob, had accused Modi and other senior government officers of being conspirators in the riots.

The former Congress MP was among 69 people burnt alive by a rioting mob Feb 28, 2002 at the Gulberg Housing Society in Ahmedabad. 

"No offence" has been established against any of the persons listed in Zakia's complaint as per the SIT report, judge Bhatt said in his order. 

This is the first official confirmation about the SIT report on finding no proof against the chief minister. 

The court also asked the probe panel to give a copy of the report to Zakia Jafri within 30 days which is when the SIT report will become fully public.

"As per the Supreme Court's order and principle of natural justice the complainant has to be given copy of the report and related documents. Zakia will be given copies of the investigation report, statements of witnesses and all related documents within 30 days of this order," said the court. 

Zakia in her first reaction told Times Now channel that she was "disappointed" with the closure report and vowed to continue her fight for justice till she was alive.

""I am saddened but confident I will get justice. I will fight for the justice till I am alive," said Zakia, who claims that her husband had made frantic calls to police and the chief minister's office seeking help, but to no avail.

The probe panel had submitted its final findings on Zakia's plea to the court in February in a sealed cover and had left it to the court to take a decision on sharing it with the main petitioner.

It is a shame that some sections of the press especially a woman whose name sounds like Burqa is completely sold to the Congress pseudosecularis ts.

Let us now finally investigate Congress goons who killed our Sikh brothers and sisters in 1984.
The Congress plays dirty politics and follows exactly what the British Imperial power did in India.

1000+ people were killed on Modi's watch.No S(h) IT report can disprove this fact.Just because it happened 10 years back does not mean jusitce be denied. Those who are crowing about his popularity should know that another mass murderer called Hitler was also very popular in Germany.

No Indian nationalist has been subjected to this kind of media trial, false propaganda,char acter assssination than Mr Narendra Bhai Modi. Compare his agnipareeksha to all the people who are ruling India. The nation still has not punished any one for 1984 delhi riots. The Media supported by foreign funded NGO's will continue their tirade. Now is the time for the BJP and its alliance partners to take on the adversaries openly. enough is enough.

Yes, zakia should keep fighting in her husband's name because that is the only way left now for her to earn "bread & butter" & enjoy remaining life & also for some pervert females like teesta Jhootavad will also earn their bread... Now, to be fair to Modi, SC must order for an investigation against all those - some english reporters, NGOs especially this teesta, some self styled crooks & perverts, major news agencies who encashed on Modi & conspired & caused damage to Modi's reputation .... who will

History is full of ,unconvinced prejudiced motivated accusers ,of innocence.They will not be satisfied till their political ends are achieved ,even if it means the disregard for and death of justice.The anti national political forces want Modi's political ,moral and emotional death.nothing less.it has nothing to do with legality or evidences

Many thousands of lies, no matter whatever times repeated, cannot hid the truth! No cacophony of wrong accusations will ever diminish the strong persona of Mr. Modi to come down to those hollering at him for guilts he never committed!

The report of a sincere Hindu IAS officer who was present during 2002 in Gujarat riots. What is noteworthy is that there were other great Hindu officers like him who risked their careers to side with the truth. Please read up on these officers. They are really great. They have understood what is dharma as mentioned by Lord Krishna of doing their duty against all odds. Rahul Sharma, Vivek Srivastava, Sreekumar, M D Antani, Himanshu Bhat. Also VK Gupta (IPS).

Even when surrounded by Asuric forces which exhorted them to support violence against innocents in the name of political games, they remained steadfast and followed their true dharma and conscience.

The quality of justice is not universal.In the USA ,one player O.J.Simpson was given clean chit in the murder of his wife case.But the other court thought him guilty and punished him.In one court "Glove did not fit".In other court Mr Simpson could not deny the ownership of his shoes.In the same way some courts could be more afraid of CIVIL WAR between the pseudo-secularist and the Bigot Jokers.The objective should be equal peace and justice for all citizens.Zakia Jaffery can be compensated in many other ways.
