Massacre of Muslims in Gujarat had sanctions of Modi: Tehelka

The six-month long “investigation brings confirmation that the Gujarat murder of Muslims was not a spontaneous swell of anger, but a planned genocide strategised and executed by top functionaries of the RSS, the VHP, the Bajrang Dal and the state authorities, with the knowledge and sanction of Chief Minister Narendra Modi,” Tehelka claimed.

The magazine quoted a BJP MLA, who said that he was present in the meeting in which Modi gave them “three days’ time to do whatever they wanted.

“He had given us three days time…to do whatever we could. He said he would not give us time after that…He said this openly,” the news magazine quoted the MLA as saying.

After three days “he (Modi) asked us to stop and everything came to a halt,” Haresh Bhatt, the then national co-coordinator of the Bajrang Dal was quoted, as saying.

“It appears that bombs were manufactured in factories owned by senior Bajrang Dal and VHP activists. Arms were smuggled from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Punjab, and then distributed to execution squads led by MLAs and senior members of the Sangh Parivar. Consignments of arms were not just smuggled in once, but ‘there were tens and tens of them,” Tehelka wrote.

The news magazine also claims that elaborate legal subversion was done to save those accused for their role in the genocide. To help the foot soldiers, who actually raped, killed and looted, the strategists had constituted a panel of lawyers sympathetic to Hindu cause, claims Tehelka.

“To get me out on bail, Narendrabhai changed judges thrice,” Tehelka quoted abu Bajrangi, as saying. (ANI)
