In a press release issued on Thursday, Tehelka magazine claimed that fresh evidence about the 2002 Gujarat carnage had confirmed that the killings of Muslims in the state was strategised and executed by top functionaries of the RSS, VHP and the Bajrang Dal, with the knowledge and sanction of the state authorities and Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

“A six-month Tehelka investigation brings forward irrefutable evidence of many horrific incidents that have remained contested in the last five years,” Tehelka said in the release.

Tehelka said that it had a first hand account from “the men who conducted” the brutal murder of Congress MP Ehsan Jafri by hacking him. Also on record are confessions of rape, besides graphic details about incidents including the one in Naroda Patiya where dozens of Muslims hiding in a pit were doused with kerosene and burnt alive, the statement said.

…It added that an accused in the Naroda Patiya massacre — in which 200 Muslims were killed —has been captured on camera as saying that Modi came to Patiya that evening and thanked them saying, “aap dhanya ho” (you are great!).

The six-month long “investigation brings confirmation that the Gujarat murder of Muslims was not a spontaneous swell of anger, but a planned genocide strategised and executed by top functionaries of the RSS, the VHP, the Bajrang Dal and the state authorities, with the knowledge and sanction of Chief Minister Narendra Modi,” Tehelka claimed. The magazine quoted a BJP MLA, who said that he was present in the meeting in which Modi gave them “three days’ time to do whatever they wanted.

“He had given us three days time…to do whatever we could. He said he would not give us time after that…He said this openly,” the news magazine quoted the MLA as saying. After three days “he (Modi) asked us to stop and everything came to a halt,” Haresh Bhatt, the then national co-coordinator of the Bajrang Dal was quoted, as saying.

…The news magazine also claims that elaborate legal subversion was done to save those accused for their role in the genocide. To help the foot soldiers, who actually raped, killed and looted, the strategists had constituted a panel of lawyers sympathetic to Hindu cause, claims Tehelka.”To get me out on bail, Narendrabhai changed judges thrice,” Tehelka quoted abu Bajrangi, as saying.
