With his folded hands and a face etched with fear, Ansari became the iconic image of Gujarar riots. Armed with an iron stick and shouting anti-Muslim slogans, Mochi’s image has gone down in history as the symbolic figure of a perpetrator of the riot.
In October last year, the CPI (M) had brought Ansari to Kozhikode in Kerala for the launch of a magazine, Mukhyadhara, written by pro-Left Muslim writers.
