modi and the Godhra incident

narendra modi, the current prime minister of India, is held by many as responsible for the Carnage at Godhra. Since the courts, after their own fashion, have not passed any judgement on him, Many, particularly of the bjp and related parties, hold that he is guiltless.

My comments, via Twitter, on modi‬ and Godhra:

King HenryII‬‘s very Raj-Tantric (politically clever) words: “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest” brought about the death of ‪‎ThomasBecket‬.

‪‎Hitler‬ did not PERSONALLY kill 60 Lakh people. It was his teaching and organization that did it.

modi giving the Free Hand to the Rioters, the Transfer of officials, the Disappearance of Witnesses, etc, show who is guilty.

BOTH communities might be to blame. But here We are talking of modi.

*******

modi is just the biggest example at this moment of politicos being responsible for even communal carnage. But he is not alone in this.

mamata in WB saying ‘We will Protest,’ when she means Communal violence will take place is another very good example.

jayalalitha having given a free rein to the rogue elements who had brought her to power is another example of this.
