  • Description
    No instance of communal violence has provoked as much controversy as the Gujarat 2002 carnage, in which over 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, were killed. And none has been subjected to as much fact-finding. Yet, as this book demonstrates, the fact-finding - riddled with ambiguities and deceptions, gaps and contradictions - glossed over crucial pieces of evidence. While the Nanavati Commission shirked from examining Modi, the special investigation team (SIT) left unasked a range of questions on the anti-Muslim violence that followed the burning of a train in Godhra carrying Hindutva activists. How could Modi, for instance, claim to have been unaware, for nearly five hours, of the first post-Godhra massacre that took place at Ahmedabad's Gulberg Society? How does this claim square with his admission that he was tracking the violence as it unfolded? Scrupulously researched and now updated to factor in the national elections of 2014, The Fiction of Fact-finding draws telling parallels between Gujarat 2002 and the 1984 massacre of Sikhs in Delhi to underline an insidious pattern in Indian democracy: the subversion of the criminal justice system under a shroud of legal platitudes.

    Don't miss this one!

    Manoj Mitta has done a very thorough research on the SIT's and commissions that have handled the Godhra and post Godhra related fact-findings. Hats off to him for all the work he has done. He has gone through the evidence available and the hearings of the appointed fact-finding commissions and exposed the opaque, shoddy investigations conducted by the respective commissions. Extremely well written, with some strong parallels to the shoddy investigations of 1984 riots and the handling of the r...

    Stunning in its revelations

    While I read this book, I was saddened that I only heard of it so late and not before the 2014 elections. Why it didn't receive more publicity I don't know, maybe it was a result of the pro-Modi media glut that took place in the beginning of the year. This book goes through the details of the SIT and Justice Nanavati Commission investigations into the Godhra incident and the Gujarat riots that follows, and shows the many failures of the investigative bodies. While the Modi supporters reading ...

    A THROUGHLY WELL RESEARCHED BOOK WITH AMAZING TRUTHS

    This book has many dimensions , how things happened?,how the events were camouflaged? &,the judicial system apathy and controversial SIT , It seems the state government machinery worked hard to erase everything from the horrific events, Sadly , they were successful. that no any clinching evidence is available.Kudos to Manoj Mitta for such painstaking efforts, Alas!such an analytic book is not going to be popular in the era of the viral [pathological ] media reaction.

    Great book!!

    This book is not for blind followers (be they of Modi or any other political outfit). Read this book only if you have an open mind about Modi and the BJP. The author has probably put in a lot of research into this book. Although there are some places, where the content is based purely on the author's perception, most of the book is based on hard facts.

    I am not convinced

    The book is well written with lot of research and hard work. However from the way book is written it seems that there was already a view author held before he/she started doing research and hence all the research and hard work was intended to prove inefficiency of SIT and complicity of Modi government. It seems heavily biased and do not give much idea about what really happened in Modi's mind and his government when riots took place. Their previous book about 1984 riots was comparatively much...
