I am upset, disappointed: Zakia Jafri

Gulberg Verdict: BJP claims victory; A huge step forward, says Setalvad

Ahmedabad: Suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt has written an open letter to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, saying that he has "completely misconstrued" the Supreme Court order on the complaint of Zakia Jafri and there was nothing in the order to give him reason to celebrate.

Zakia is the widow of former MP Ehsan Jafri killed in the Gulberg Housing Society carnage in 2002.

"It seems you have completely misconstrued the judgement and the order passed by the Honourable Supreme Court of India in Criminal Appeal No 1765 of 2011 arising out of SLP (CRL) No 1088 of 2008 that is Jakia Nasim Ahesan Versus State of Gujarat," Bhatt wrote in a letter to Modi.

"Let me clarify that even by a long shot, the order of the Supreme Court has nowhere, even remotely, suggested that the allegations contained in the complaint filed by Mrs Jakia Jafri were unfounded or false," he said.

"The order of the Honourable Supreme Court is, in fact, a very major leap in the direction of delivering justice to the hapless victims of the Gujarat pogrom."

"The order over which some are gloating in feigned glee is, in fact, a very cleverly worded order that takes the perpetrators and facilitators of the 2002 carnage a few leaps closer to their day of reckoning," Bhatt said.

"The false bravado comes across as a very smart attempt to mislead the gullible people of Gujarat and instill a false sense of confidence in the political rank and file", Bhatt said.

On Sep 12, the apex court left it to the trial court concerned to decide the course of action against Modi on the basis of court-appointed Special Investigation Team report.

Jafri had filed a complaint in the apex court, seeking action against Modi and other government officials for the riots,

Terming Modi's plans for a three-day fast for peace, harmony and unity in Gujarat as "completely misleading", the suspended police officer said: "It seems you (Modi) have completely misconstrued the judgement and order passed by the honourable Supreme Court of India and it is very likely that your chosen advisors have once again misled you and have in turn, made you mislead the 'six crore Gujaratis' who look up to you as their elected leader."

Bhatt had earlier accused Modi of wanting to teach Muslims a "lesson" after the Godhra train-burning incident in 2002. Bhatt was suspended by the Modi government in August this year for not reporting to work for nearly 10 months.
