Narendra Modi has written a blog post about the 2002 riots. While this could be seen as another attempt to dislodge LK Advani, who was the original blogger of BJP, Congress has decided to go beyond it and attack Modi on the content apart from the intent.
Faking News took a print out of Modi’s blog post and showed it to Congress leaders Manish Tewari and Digvijay Singh. They left the following notes (in italics and bold):
Dear sisters and brothers, (What an obscurantist regressive outlook to compartmentalize the compatriots in only two clusters of relationships: Manish Tewari)
The law of nature is that Truth alone triumphs – Satyameva Jayate. Our judiciary having spoken, I felt it important to share my inner thoughts and feelings with the nation at large.
The end brings back memories of the beginning. The devastating earthquake of 2001 had plunged Gujarat into the gloom of death, destruction and sheer helplessness. Hundreds of lives were lost (Official figure says its 20,000. Shows Modi’s insensitivity towards human life and facts: Digvijay Singh). Lakhs were rendered homeless. Entire livelihoods were destroyed. In such traumatic times of unimaginable suffering, I was given the responsibility to soothe and rebuild.
And we had whole heartedly plunged ourselves into the challenge at hand.
Within a mere five months however, the mindless violence of 2002 had dealt us another unexpected blow. (Blow to Modi) Innocents were killed. (Innocent minorities were killed: Digvijay Singh) Families rendered helpless. Property built through years of toil destroyed. Still struggling to get back on its feet from the natural devastation, this was a crippling blow to an already shattered and hurting Gujarat.
I was shaken to the core. ‘Grief’, ‘Sadness’, ‘Misery’, ‘Pain’, ‘Anguish’, ‘Agony’ (Not impressed with the range of the vocabulary: Manish Tewari) – mere words could not capture the absolute emptiness one felt on witnessing such inhumanity.
On one side was the pain of the victims of the earthquake, and on the other the pain of the victims of the riots. In decisively confronting this great turmoil, I had to single-mindedly focus all the strength given to me by the almighty (Is he talking about almighty of the majority or the minority community?: Digvijay Singh), on the task of peace, justice and rehabilitation; burying the pain and agony I was personally wracked with.
During those challenging times, I often recollected the wisdom in our scriptures; (I am sure he is talking about Hindu scriptures: Digvijay Singh) explaining how those seating in positions of power did not have the right to share their own pain and anguish. They had to suffer it in solitude. I lived through the same,experiencing this anguish in searingly sharp intensity. In fact, whenever I remember those agonizing days, I have only one earnest prayer to God. That never again should such cruelly unfortunate days come in the lives of any other person, society, state or nation. (Lie! That is not his prayer. He prays about more riots. I’ve photocopy of his prayers: Digvijay Singh)
This is the first time I am sharing the harrowing ordeal I had gone through in those days at a personal level.
However, it was from these very built up emotions that I had appealed to the people of Gujarat on the day of the Godhra train burning (It was an accident, we proved it.) itself; fervently urging for peace and restraint to ensure lives of innocents were not put at risk. I had repeatedly reiterated the same principles in my daily interactions with the media in those fateful days of February-March 2002 as well; (media never reported and repeated that. LOL!) publicly underlining the political will as well as moral responsibility of the government to ensure peace, deliver justice and punish all guilty of violence.
You will also find these deep emotions in my recent words at my Sadbhavanafasts where I had emphasized how such deplorable incidents did not behove a civilized society and had pained me deeply. (Lie!)
In fact, my emphasis has always been on developing and emphasizing a spirit of unity; with the now widely used concept of ‘my 5 crore Gujarati brothers and sisters’ having crystallised right at the beginning of my tenure as CM itself from this very space. (Sanctimonious!)
However, as if all the suffering was not enough, I was also accused of the death and misery of my own loved ones, my Gujarati brothers and sisters. Can you imagine the inner turmoil and shock of being blamed for the very events that have shattered you! (Fascist!)
For so many years, they incessantly kept up their attack, leaving no stone unturned. What pained even more was that in their overzealousness to hit at me for their narrow personal and political ends, they ended up maligning my entire state and country. This heartlessly kept reopening the wounds that we were sincerely trying to heal. (Wounds! What a lie. There were deaths. Not just wounds!: Digvijay Singh) It ironically also delayed the very justice that these people claimed to be fighting for. Maybe they did not realize how much suffering they were adding to an already pained people.
Gujarat however had decided its own path. We chose peace over violence. We chose unity over divisiveness. We chose goodwill over hatred. (Proves that Modi is a polarizing figure; people are choosing either of the extremes) This was not easy, but we were determined to commit for the long haul. From a life of daily uncertainty and fear; my Gujarat transformed into one of Shanti, Ekta, and Sadbhavana. I stand a satisfied and reassured man today. And for this, I credit each and every Gujarati. (Rajiv Gandhi ji’s vision has to be credited first.)
The Gujarat Government had responded to the violence more swiftly and decisively than ever done before in any previous riots in the country. (There were no riots in the country prior to 2002 or after 2002.) Yesterday’s judgement culminated a process of unprecedented scrutiny closely monitored by the highest court of the land, the Honourable Supreme Court of India. Gujarat’s 12 years of trial by the fire have finally drawn to an end. I feel liberated and at peace. (LOL! Saheb, snoopgatge probe is on!)
I am truly grateful to all those who stood by me in these trying times; seeing through the facade of lies and deceit. With this cloud of misinformation firmly dispelled, I will now also hope that the many others out there trying to understand and connect with the real Narendra Modiwould feel more empowered to do so. (So all the time there was fake Narendra Modi? Feku!)
Those who derive satisfaction by perpetuating pain in others will probably not stop their tirade against me. (Shit! he knows it) I do not expect them to. But, I pray in all humility, that they at least now stop irresponsibly maligning the 6 crore (Earlier he said 5 crores, now 6 crores. Such a liar!) people of Gujarat.
Emerging from this journey of pain and agony; I pray to God that (Look how this communal person is not revealing the religion of the God which he wants to impose on others) no bitterness seeps into my heart. I sincerely do not see this judgement as a personal victory or defeat, and urge all – my friends and especially my opponents – to not do so as well. I was driven by this same principle at the time of the Honourable Supreme Court’s 2011 judgement on this matter. I fasted 37 days for Sadbhavana, choosing to translate the positive judgement into constructive action, reinforcing Unity and Sadbhavana in society at large.
I am deeply convinced that the future of any society, state or country lies in harmony. (Yes, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi ji) This is the only foundation on which progress and prosperity can be built. Therefore, I urge one and all to join hands in working towards the same, ensuring smiles on each and every face.
Once again, Satyameva Jayate! Vande Mataram! (RSS agenda forcing Muslim readers to read and say this: Digvijay Singh)
