An Offence to Democracy 2

It’s really distressing that the people of Gujarat have once again brought the BJP to power. This after the recent Tehelka expose, in which we saw many within the party and their supporters bragging about the heinous crimes they committed during the riots which will cause even Slobodan Milosevic to shudder.

It’s really distressing that the people of Gujarat have once again brought the BJP to power. This after the recent Tehelka expose, in which we saw many within the party and their supporters bragging about the heinous crimes they committed during the riots which will cause even Slobodan Milosevic to shudder. The remote prospect of justice for the Gujarat riot victims will now vanish into thin air. The citizens of Gujarat should have realised that progress and development is not possible on the bodies and graves of the innocents. This victory is indeed an hour of shame and grief for all those who are devoted to the principles of justice and peaceful coexistence. In this otherwise sorrowful hour, let’s pray against all odds that Modi and his goons are brought to justice and are handed exemplary punishments, a fitting trial for the crimes of genocide that they committed.
