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. Read e-mail of Indian Mujahideens which they send five minutes before Ahmadabad serial Bomb Blasts on 26.07.2008. Read also Late Mr. B.Raman analysis dated 25.08.2008 after Ahmadabad Bomb Blasts.

    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.

    Wait only for 2014 results of Parliament elections. If the BJP get majority and make Modi to PM of India, it will be disaster for India. No one rule out war with stan. Read daily the Islamic stan ISI trained terrorists are giving threats to kill saffron Parivar members as they demolished the Babri Masjid in 1992 under the leadership of Mr. L.K.Advani.Now theIslamic terrorist gave threats to kill Modi if he will be BJP Prime Minister of India in 2014.What happened in Patna on 27.10.2013 in the rally of Mr. Narendra Modi? Six people died due to Bomb Blasts in Patna of which the responsibility are taken by the Islamic Mujahedin's in Patan to take revenge of 1992 / 2002 riots against the Muslims in India.What happened in Muzaffarnagar in September 2013, riots against Muslims on a very pity matter. There were no major riots in Western UP before 1947 and after 1947 parion of India.There wa very good harmony between Hindus - Jats and Muslims in western UP except some small riots those were controlled in a day.Now the saffron parivar 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished under Mr. L.K.Advani and BJP came in power under Mr. A.B.Vajpayee who was having collaboration Center government with NDA partners,Now Muslim youths are recruited by Islamic Jihadi's to do riots in India, which again the saffron Parivar want under Mr. Raj NathSingh a BJP president and Mr. Narendra Modi as convenor of 2014 Parliament elections. all powers are now with Modi to whom too give BJP tickets or to whom refused the BJP MP tickets in India.Mr. Narendra Modi has all the powers of BJP now with RSS backing to him.Wait only for few months. Now youth of India are with Modi to see him PM of India in 2014 to give a lesson to stan and to remove Islamic terrorists from India, which is not posible as Mr. A.B.Vajpayee also failed to have normal relations with stan from 1998 to 2004 with Kargil war in 1999 with stan. See how many Bomb Blasts in India from 1992 to 2o14? Killing more than 4000 innocent people in India from 2004 to 2014 only by Bomb Blasts of Islamic Jihadi's. Hope Modi will make India terrorist free as Indian youths are with him.All saying there will be disaster, ifMr. Narendra Modi will be BJP Prime Minister of India in 2014.Pray to God to maintain peace in India after 2014.

    Sandy, don't forget we are talking about innocent people who were macred. Please do not be little the truth / debate by such baseless comments. And let me tell you, these are retired honest people who have devoted their lives for providing justice and do not care about the few pennies raised by the book.
