In 2002, a man's picture went viral, his hands folded, pleading for mercy. He lived to tell the tale. In 2017, another man's picture is viral. His hands folded and bloody. He didn't live to tell the tale. The 2002 picture shook many people's conscience. In 2017, it doesn't any more. That is what happens when mob lynching becomes a regular thing. It doesn't prick people's conscience any more[Pratik Sinha, Alt News] --- “intolerance” is the wrong word to use for the lynching, shooting, burning and mass murder of fellow human beings. Second, we had plenty of advance notice of what lay in store for us – so I cannot claim to be shocked by what has happened after this government was enthusiastically voted into office with an overwhelming majority. Third, these horrific murders are only a symptom of a deeper malaise. Life is hell for the living too. Whole populations – millions of Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims and Christians are being forced to live in terror, unsure of when and from where the assault will come.Today we live in a country in which, when the thugs & apparatchiks of the New Order talk of “illegal slaughter” they mean the imaginary cow that was killed – not the real man that was murdered. When they talk of taking “evidence for forensic examination” from the scene of the crime, they mean the food in the fridge, not the body of the lynched man. We say we've “progressed” – but when Dalits are butchered and their children burned alive, which writer today can freely say, like Babasaheb Ambedkar once did that “To the Untouchables, Hinduism is a veritable chamber of horrors,” without getting attacked, lynched, shot or jailed? Which writer can write what Saadat Hassan Manto wrote in his “Letter to Uncle Sam”? It doesn’t matter whether we agree or disagree with what is being said,we will turn into a nation of fools. Across the subcontinent it has become a race to the bottom – one that the New India has enthusiastically joined[#arundhatiroy via Scroll.in http://buff.ly/2qL2APB] --- #india #india2017 #indian #gujaratriots #intolerance #gujarat2002 #jharkhand #delhi #mumbai #bangalore #chennai #calcutta #guwahati #goa #hyderabad #newdelhi #bombay #truth

CW: rape, murder

However the cops and doctors convicted of lying and tampering with the evidence will not be facing any jail time. 😡

વાત ગુજરાત!! ગુજરાતી સમાચાર ...સાથે ફાફડા, મરચા, જલેબી અને જોડે ગરમ ચા.
જોઈ લો, એક માંખી પણ આનંદ માણવા આવી ગઈ! એ પણ ગુજરાતી હશે.

24 are convicted for atrocities committed on 28 February 2002, when a Hindu mob attacked the Gulbarg Society during the Gujarat riots. The Gulbarg Society massacre saw at least 35 Muslim people burnt alive and a further 31 left missing after the incident. #GujaratRiots #GulbargSociety #India

I can imagine such discussions in thousands of houses... Finally watching "Firaaq" (2008) by Nandita Das. The 2002 Gujarat violence is still fresh in my memory.

Burning faith. Something I chanced upon while going through a 2012 issue of outlook magazine. #bilkis #gujaratriots #remembering

I spent a week at various #rehabilitation colonies across #ahmedabad, spending time with those displaced by the #gujaratriots, and this is what I saw. For #Scroll.

On this 15th anniversary of Gujarat Riots, a well celebrated and discussed violence in India so far as for and against, I believe remembrance of the day itself counts in protests against State Sponsored Terrorism...! According to official figures, the riots resulted in the deaths of 2,500+ people and more were injured non-fatally, some were reported missing.There were instances of rape, children being burned alive, and widespread looting and destruction of property. The Chief Minister of Gujarat at that time, Narendra Modi, unluckily he is our PM now, has been accused of initiating and condoning the violence, as have police and government officials who allegedly directed the rioters and gave lists of Muslim-owned properties to them.!! Moreover, the Vishwa Hindu Parishath (VHP), RSS as well as many politicians, including Modi, made inflammatory remarks and endorsed strikes, further stoking tensions. Media described these attacks as state terrorism, and that they were not riots but "organized political massacres"

Even The United States Departments of States ultimately banned Narendra Modi from traveling to the United States due to his alleged role in the attacks.
.
As matured citizens of India rather than double faced politicians, lets take sincere attitude and action against Communal Violence and Intolerance in a way of what our Father Of Nation taught us.. This shall not be a cliche pledge but should be a way of life, an instance of character..!!

Part3: On 2 June 2016, the Supreme Court convicted 24 of the accused. Jafri'd wife Zakia who has been following the case says, complete justice hasn't been done. The victims of 2002 riots continue to maintain the chief minister's complicity in one of the biggest genocides in the history of modern India.

Part2: Among those killed in cold blood was Ehsan Jafri, a former MP. A burning tyre was put around him and his hands were chopped off before he was murdered. Jaldi had apparently called Narendra Modi before the mob went on a rampage. Eye witnesses say Modi abused Jafri and wished he were dead earlier.
