God is great, tweets Modi after Supreme Court verdict

New Delhi, Sep 12 (IANS) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi Monday thanked god after the Supreme Court verdict directing a trial court to hear a petition against him in the killing of former MP Ehsan Jafri in the 2002 riots.

“God is great,” Modi tweeted on the microblogging site Twitter.

The apex court order came after a petition filed by Zakia Jafri, the widow of Ehasan Jafri, urging a probe into Modi’s role in the Gulberg society carnage and the trial of the case by a special court outside the state.

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj congratulated Modi, saying truth has won.

“Narendrabhai has passed Agnipareeksha today. My heartiest congraulations to him. Satyameva jayate. Varshon baad aaj satya ki vijay hui,” she tweeted.
