Amritsar (April 24, 2011): Citing Gujarat’s chief minister’s comments that Muslims need to be taught a lesson in the wake of Godhra killings, the Dal Khalsa drew parallel of Narendra Modi with late Rajiv Gandhi who too allowed Hindus to vent their anger to teach a lesson to Sikhs in the aftermath of assassination of his mother Indira Gandhi by two Sikh police officers.
Stating that Narendra Modi is carbon copy of Rajiv Gandhi vis-a-vis minorities, Dal Khalsa leaders Satnam Singh, Sarbjit Singh and Kanwar Pal Singh said the admission by IPS Sanjiv Rajendra Bhatt before the apex court was a vindication of what the Indian civil society has been crying from the day first.
Stating that “what Gujarat has witnessed was not riots, as being reported in the media, they said it’s a pogrom; organized violence perpetrated by the brute majority against minority community. Scores of innocent people were killed, roasted alive just only because they were followers of Islam. Gujarat government’s complicity in the violence was evident because the authorities did little to prevent the inferno not because of incompetence but they share the prejudices of the Hindu gangs who have been busy pulping their Muslim neighbors”.
In 2002, the BJP joined the club of Congress: perpetrating the mass murder of minorities. What Modi led BJP did in Gujarat was same what Rajiv led Congress did with Sikhs in 1984. “The politics of genocide has become the permanent feature of the Indian psyche; ‘revenge’ has become an instrument of state policy. The politics of genocide has a tacit approval of a section of Hindus irrespective of their political affiliation with Congress or BJP.
When Indian leadership spoke of doublespeak of World Powers on “terrorism”, we understood India’s concern. But who will understand our concern on India’s double standards on “terrorism”. Do the killings of innocent persons in mob violence not an act of terrorism? Is retaliation justified?
Appreciating the recent landmark decisions of the apex court in which it ruled that ‘sympathy with (Maoist) cause is not sedition’ and ‘members of banned groups could not be treated as criminals till they indulge in violence’, they said we pin hope that the apex court would deliver justice to aggrieved Muslims of Gujarat in the light of revelations made by IPS officer Bhatt.
