Newsclick Production, April 29, 2013
Newsclick discusses with Sukumar Muralidharan, senior journalist, the closure report submitted by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that was appointed by the Supreme Court to look into Chief Minister Narendra Modi's role in the Gujarat Pogrom of 2002. The Report gave a clean chit to Modi. Muralidharan says there was clear evidence of incitement from high levels of political hierarchy, but the SIT chose not to take it into consideration. Post Godhra, Narendra Modi swore revenge. But the SIT went soft on him and did not consider his remarks as an act of incitement. There is substantial circumstantial evidence to nail the culprits, but it has not been considered. It has to be ensured that acts of incitement get no political dividends, he says.
