    What is truth behind alleged 3 days given to Hindus to vent their anger? Where is the "smoking gun"?

    S-6 was torched in 27 Feb, 2002. On 28 Feb riots broke out. These are the two established facts.

    What are signs of giving free hand of rioters? Were the ploice in the barracks on orders of Modi? Were the TV crews restrained from reporting? Cardinal question: What were media reporting at that point of time?

    Fact: This much-repeated nonsensical allegation is baseless. Narendra Modi frantically called the Army units to Ahmedabad on February 28- as per the report of The Hindu the next day. India Today weekly’s report ‘Chronology of a Crisis’ on this topic in its issue dated 18 March 2002 also proves this beyond doubt.

    The full details of the steps taken by the Gujarat Government to control violence can be read in this article:

    Role of the Government in controlling violence | Gujarat Riots: The True Story

    Verified facts:

    827 preventive arrests on February 27 itself- and given shoot-at-sight at Godhra on February 27 itself at 9:45 AM- only 2 hours after the Godhra carnage. The entire police force was deployed in Gujarat in view of apprehension that riots might break out on February 27 itself. The Rapid Action Force was deployed in Ahmedabad and other sensitive areas and the Centre sent in CRPF personnel-on February 27 itself! All this was reported by various English newspapers-like The Indian Express, The Times of India, The Tribune, The Hindustan Times etc the next day- i.e. 28 February.

    Where was ehe time famously given for venting the ire???


    On Feb 27 itself- Rediff.com - India, Business, Stock, Sports, Cricket, Entertainment, Bollywood, Music, Video and Breaking news, Rediffmail NG reported- “The situation became tense as news of the incident spread to other parts of the state prompting the state government to initiate precautionary security measures. Security has been tightened in Godhra and other parts of Gujarat.â€

    Rediff.com also reported quoting PTI on Feb 28 evening that-“The army has been asked to stand by and the Rapid Action Force and the Central Industrial Security Force have been deployed in Ahmedabad and other places.â€
    The link for this report is-
    rediff.com: 30 persons burnt alive in Ahmedabad

    Rediff.com reported on Feb 27 itself- after Godhra that- “Two companies of the Rapid Action Force and one company of the State Reserve Police were deployed at Godhra to guard against further outbreak of violence.â€
    The link for the report: rediff.com: Thirty-five arrested for attack on Sabarmati Express

    Again, where was the time given for venting the ire?


    “Indefinite curfew was imposed in the city from 0800 hours following the stabbing incidents, a senior police official said.

    Curfew had been imposed in the six police station areas of the walled city (i.e. Ahmedabad) and RAF and CISF companies have been deployed in sensitive areas, Police Commissioner Deen Dayal Tuteja said.

    Indefinite curfew has also been imposed in Lunawada town of Panchmahal district after 0200 hours on Wednesday night following incidents of arson and looting, he said.

    Meanwhile, indefinite curfew, imposed in Godhra town after the attack on the train on Wednesday, continued on Thursday without any relaxation.

    No untoward incident was reported during the curfew so far, police said.

    The situation had remained peaceful and under control in other parts of the state during the night, police said.â€

    Sorry, no time seems to be made available for giving vent.


    When was the Army in position?

    Army was being deployed in Ahemedabad as of mid night of 28 Feb. By March 1, it was staging flag marches. **

    Talk of liars and yellow jounalists.
