Godhra Verdict, another tomfoolery.

Meghnad Desai's article on Godhra verdict calls it half and half, comparing it to the Babari Masjid verdict.

I had presented my views on Ayodhya verdict here. The members of the Congress party, the Left (and possibly many in the BJP as well) want Narendra Modi to be indicted in the Godhra case. For them it is one more opportunity to appease their Jihadi friends.

In a country like India, where justice comes, if at all, after so long a time, that one wonders if there is any law-enforcement institution in India at all! Under such circumstances, how are the near and dear ones of the kar-sevak victims, who were burnt alive in the coach of Sabarmati Express, to react?

The Left is busy defending Binayak Sen who is an ideologue of a movement, the Maoist movement, which regularly kidnaps and kills people including police-men. The Left justifies this defense as a revolt against the state-atrocities. Never mind the atrocities that the Left committed on the people of West Bengal for over more than three decades.

Now, the question is how can the Left accuse the relatives and sympathizers of the victims of the carnage (the Kar-sevaks) if they too revolt against the apathy of the same state, against whom their Mao friends are revolting?

The Left and the Congress has mastered the art of doubles-speak, and the BJP (Mr. Advani, Mr. Jaitley, Ms Swaraj, Mr. Jaswant) are not far behind. Indians will do well to recall that after the massacre of Sikhs by the evil hooligans of the Congress in 1984, the late husband of the current queen of Congress Ms. Sonia Gandhi, Mr. Rajiv Gandhi had said: “Some riots took place in the country following the murder of Indiraji. We know the people were very angry and for a few days it seemed that India had been shaken. But, when a mighty tree falls, it is only natural that the earth around it does shake a little.” And this exemplifies the attitude of Congress towards killing of innocent Sikh-people.

So if tens of Kar Sevaks were burnt alive, was that not the same as the falling of a mighty tree? In my opinion, the sole culprit of the riots in Gujarat are those who committed the carnage. The court has done a great disservice to the cause of justice, the cause of peace in society, by letting the prime accused off the hook.

And O stupid politicians, don't rely on the media sycophants, when your moment to depart arrives, they will cheer your downfall in as vociferous a manner as they are cheering you now. But of course, in India the term stupid-politician suffers from the error of redundancy. Aren't they all (well almost all) DFs?

    Very Well said.

    This also reminds me of what I heard long ago: Some things are so serious that we can only joke about them!
