Gujarat Riots 2002 and Bihar Riots 1946-47 – Gandhi as Teesta Setalvad

A five member team headed by Justice Tewatia comprising media professionals, Supreme Court advocates and reputed academicians travelled to Gujarat in the wake of the Gujarat riots in 2002 and compiled their findings in a report. According to this report –

On the 22nd of February, this year, the Sabarmati express started from Faizabad 225 minutes late. On that fateful day, 2300 pilgrims were traveling by the train. Most of them were returning from Ayodhya after the Purna Ahuti yagna. Most of the Muslim passengers got down at Dahod railway station and the rest of them at Godhra and it appears that when the train was torched there were no Muslim passengers in the train except those who were to stop the train by pulling the chain as part of the conspiracy to burn the pilgrims alive.

Congress belittles Modi because Gandhi belittled Tilak

Gandhi wrote Hind Swaraj in a tearing hurry because as he confessed in the Preface to the first edition of Hind Swaraj –

Had I not known there was a danger of methods of violence becoming popular, even in South Africa, had I not been called upon by hundreds of my countrymen, and not a few English friends, to express my opinion on the Nationalist movement in India, I would have refrained for the sake of the struggle, from reducing my views to writing. But, occupying the position that I do, it would have been cowardice on my part to postpone publication under the circumstances just referred to. (Preface to Hind Swaraj, March 20, 1910)
