Lest We Forget: Gujarat 2002

Prashun Bhaumik (Editor) Amrita Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis The genocide and the economic pogrom of Gujarat, was not without a context. The popularity of the BJP led government had plummeted everywhere. Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Manipur, Punjab, two assembly segments in the BJP’s stronghold, Gujarat, had all given saffron nationalism a drubbing in the state elections. The election results were announced on February 26. On February 27, first Godhra, then the rest of Gujarat were ablaze. To what extent did the war against terrorism, after the September 11 attacks in New York and Washington, contribute towards the targeting of Muslims? Who was responsible for the Godhra outrage? Did the state government encourage the carnage? Was Gujarat custom-made for Pakistani propaganda that Indian secularism was dead? This collection of articles, by leading writers and journalists, sheds light on the carnage which far exceeded anything India had ever witnessed before.
