Remember and Never Forget Gujarat 2002

A propos your editorial “Missing Justice”, (EPW, 7 March 2009) which does well to highlight the travails and tribulations of those who suffered in the Gujarat pogroms. However, apart from the official apathy of the Narendra Modi administration, what hurts is the endorsement of “a model administration and high efficiency” by the captains of Indian industry. While they have done so for obvious reasons, it is baffling that supposedly liberal businesspersons have forgotten the state-sponsored drive towards “ethnic cleansing” in Gujarat. The Gujarat pogrom was state-sponsored. Liberal India, especially the intelligentsia, must never allow the people of this country to forget what happened in Gujarat, and the fact that the BJP’s current prime ministerial candidate stood by Modi, despite glaring evidence of the latter’s complicity and tacit support of the police-sponsored riots, must never be allowed to be forgotten.
