Justice Hosbet Suresh, former Judge of Bombay High Court Monday said that CM Narendra Modi was the main conspirator of the 2002 Gujarat riots and was not a suitable candidate as Prime Minister of India.

Justice Suresh, one of the members of Concerned Citizens’ Tribunal that probed into the 2002 Gujarat riots and prepared a report, was speaking at the launch of a book in the city. Justice Suresh added that it would be dangerous for the country to have Modi as PM. Turning down the clean chit given to Modi by a magisterial court, Justice Suresh also said that there were many evidences against Modi and the issue was still to be adjudicated by the High Court and Supreme Court. “Supreme Court has not given him a clean chit,” he said.

Justice Suresh, who was in the city for the release of Sachchai Gujarat Ki, written by professor of an arts college in Ahmedabad, Hemantkumar Shah. The author terms the campaign of Gujarat’s development as “fiction” in the book. Justice Suresh said that as a member of the Concerned Citizens’ Tribunal, he — along with former Supreme Court judges V Krishna Iyer and P B Sawant — had toured Gujarat extensively for 15 days after 2002 riots. Justice Iyer, who chaired the tribunal, has given testimonials to Modi.

“Modi was the main conspirator of Gujarat riots,” Justice Suresh said.

“What happened in Best Bakery case? All the accused were acquitted by the trial court. But the same case got transferred to Maharashtra and the accused got convicted,” Justice Suresh said. “He is like Hitler. What happened after Hitler came to power? World War broke out. I do not rule out the possibility of (something) similar if he becomes the PM.”

Referring to the conviction of Maya Kodnani in the 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre and Modi’s complicity in the riots, he said, “Whose person is Kodnani? Modi’s.”

    To attack the Saffron Parivar from 2002 after Gujarat riots, the SIMI converted to Indian Mujaheddin to attack in different cities of India.

        What prof.Hemantkumar has written is true ,and what Justice Suresh has said during releasing the book is also true, but after some time ,I shudder to think ,of what will happen to both of them!! In Madhya Pradesh 65 people who were witnesses and / or whistle blowers against the "Vyapam case" have lost their lives and no action has been initiated against any murderer or no case has started to be investigated.like Thangadh Dalit macre of 2012 in which no FIR has still been registered,these two satya shodhaks are aught to perish at the alter if HINDUTTVA.
