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.


Supreme Court on Conversion 

It is undisputed that there is no justification for interfering in someone’s belief by way of use of force, provocation, conversion, incitement or upon a flawed premise that one religion is better than the other.

Is the RSS overreacting after the verdict on the Ayodhya title suit has been delayed by Supreme Court. Is there some ulterior motive that compelled the Supreme Court? Are our courts beyond corruption and manipulation?

Here are two very recent news items:

Majority of government officials are corrupt, says the Delhi High Court.

Eight of 16 Chief Justice of India were ‘corrupt’: says Ex-law minister.

One shudders at the possibility that the legal system and the courts, the last bastion of democracy in the country, may be encroached upon by the manipulating shadows of the ruling government. But this is hardly of any concern for the shameless Congress lead UPA government. They have mastered the art of hiding lies under the carpets or shoving them in the closets. They have been doing it for decades, manipulating greedy and corrupted personnels and institutions and off course the media. The list is unendending: CBI, Anti Terrorist squad,  Election Commission, EVM fraud, Navin Chawla, Bofors, Quattrocchi, Bhopal, Anderson, Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler – just to name a few.

The fiasco of Commonwealth games is a new addition, where even the image of the country to foreigners is sacrificed. And then there are reports that India bribed 72 nations to get Delhi CWG.


Parivar sniffs govt hand


New Delhi, Sept. 23: The Sangh “parivar” has decried the Supreme Court’s stay order on the Ayodhya title suit verdict and called it a “massive blow to the country”.

The VHP rejected the suggestion of negotiations and asked, “Who will talk to whom?”

The RSS described the order as “surprising” and wondered what prompted the deferment when the Supreme Court had all along directed Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow bench to speed up hearings for an expeditious ruling.

Ashok Singhal, the VHP’s international president, alleged that “forces with malafide intentions” were behind the move.

“The order is a cause of worry. After the verdict, one side would have felt aggrieved and the other would have felt good. But why stop the verdict? Even today, none of the litigants, including the Sunni Central Wakf Board, wanted to negotiate. So what is the thinking? All this is the handiwork of the government,” Singhal said.

“There is a conspiracy that is steadily unravelling,” he added.

The BJP refused to comment. “We will speak when the verdict comes,” said spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman.
