The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petition filed against Prime Minister Modi. The petition was filed against the SIT report which gave a clear key to then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots. The Supreme Court, while ruling the verdict, said the petition Zakia has no merit. This petition was filed by Zakia Jafri. On this issue, the Union’s Minister of the Interior, Amit Shah, said in a special interview with the ANI news agency that those who accused Narendra Modi should apologize. He said the main cause of the riot was the burning of the train. He said I saw the girl burning on her mother’s lap. I myself was in the hospital after the riots. There were corpses around. Amit Shah said the main cause of the riots was the burning of the Godhra train. I saw a 16 day old girl, 60 people burning. I did the last rites with my own hands. The riots that followed were politically motivated.
Shah said the Supreme Court ruling showed that all the allegations filed against the then Gujarat government had political motivations. Those who had filed complaints against Modi ji should apologize to BJP and Modi ji. In a 40-minute interview, he said Prime Minister Modi has always believed in the judiciary.
Question: The court has given Modi ji and all the defendants, how are you feeling? Are you a deputy then?
answer: First of all I will talk about clean chit. The Supreme Court has dismissed all allegations. And even on why the allegations were framed, the Supreme Court ruling has shown that these allegations had political motivations. In the battle of 18-19, such a great leader of the country continued to fight without saying a word, putting all the pains in his neck like the poison of Lord Shankar. I have seen Modi ji facing this pain up close. Only a strong-minded man can take this position.
Question: Could the police and bureaucracy not be able to do much during the riots in Gujarat because of the political vision?
answer: Opposition political parties in the BJP, some journalists who came to politics out of ideology and some NGOs together made these allegations so popular and their ecosystem was so strong that little by little everyone began to accept the lie. as a truth.
Question: Did you mention some NGOs, what were these NGOs and what did they do?
answer: The Supreme Court also said Zakia Jafri used to act on the instructions of another person. Many NGOs have signed the sworn statements of many victims and do not even know it. Everyone knows that Teesta Setalvad’s NGO was doing all this and the UPA government of that time had helped these NGOs a lot. Everyone knows this was done just to slander the image of Modi ji.
Question: If the government was right, what was the need for the ITS
answer: The SIT order was not from the court. An NGO had requested an SIT. Our government said we have no problem with the ITS. Today, when the verdict came, it was decided that a police officer, an NGO and a political party had spread lies to make a sensation. False tests were fabricated. False answers were given before the ITS. The court’s decision showed that the government did everything possible to stop the riots.
Question: At that time, your government was in both Delhi and Gujarat, how strong was the network of those people?
answer: Our government has never had the attitude to interfere in the work of the media. But the ecosystem that formed at that time, made such an arrogant lie and presented it to the public that everyone began to accept the lie as true.

Question: But weren’t there just reports of riots? There were also riots …
answer: The accusation was that the riots were motivated, the state government was involved in the riots. There were also complaints from the hand of the CM in the riots. Who denies the riots? The riots took place in many parts of the country. As for the riots, compare any 5 years of Congressional rule and any 5 years of BJP rule. How many hours was the curfew, how many people died, how many days were closed and how many days the riots lasted, comparing these things, it will be known in the reign of who were the most riots. The main cause of the riot was the burning of the Gujarati train. I saw 60 people and a 16-day-old girl sitting on her mother’s lap burning alive and I did the last rites with my own hands. This caused riots and the latter had political motivations. The bark operation against the government, which was rejected by the court, was also politically motivated.
Question: The army was not called for 3 days, if you were the Minister of the Interior at that time, would you not have called the army before?
answer: The day the Gujarat band was announced, we had called the army the same afternoon. The army takes a while to arrive. As for the Gujarat government, there was not a single day of delay. This point has also been accepted and assessed by the court. But the headquarters of the army is in Delhi. When so many Sikh brothers were killed, nothing happened for 3 days. How many SITs were done? SIT was formed after the arrival of our government. There were no arrests in the Sikh genocide for so many years during opposition governments. Are these people accusing us?
In fact, community violence erupted in Gujarat in 2002 after the Godhra incident. The criminals had attacked the ‘Gulberg Society’, a minority community settlement east of Ahmedabad. In it, 69 people, including Zakia Jafri’s husband, former Congressman Ehsan Jafri, were killed. Of these, the bodies of 38 people were recovered, while 31 people, including Jafri, were missing.
