The perpetrators of the Deadly Bombay Riots 1992-93 are Still Roaming Free. They divided us before and they're doing it once again.
In 1992–93, the city of Mumbai was rocked by communal riots between the Hindu and Muslim communities after the demolition of the Babri Masjidin Ayodhya by thousands of Hindu Karsevaks. While communal riots are not unusual in modern Indian history, these riots were particularly startling in light of Mumbai's largely peaceful past. Above all the Bombay Riots appeared to compromise the much-vaunted image of the city as cosmopolitan, secular and tolerant. Further, the riots appeared to solidify the image of Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray who scathingly criticised the judiciary.
Justice Srikrishna, then a relatively junior Judge of the Bombay High Court, accepted the task of investigating the causes of the riots, something that many of his colleagues had turned down. For five years, until 1998, he examined victims, witnesses and alleged perpetrators. Detractors came initially from left-secular quarters who were wary of a judge who was a devout and practising Hindu. The Commission was disbanded by the Shiv Sena-led government in January 1996. To this date, the recommendations of the Commission have neither been accepted nor acted upon by the Maharashtra Government.
SriKrishna Panel report on 1992-93 Bombay Riots is something that the Youth of India needs to acknowledge. It becomes almost compulsory for us Young Citizens of India to know what really happened and was Justice done with over 2000 deaths (900 officially)? We often ask each other, Why are we so divided as Indians? Why does Communal Politics play almost the Entire Role during Elections?. Unless these killers are not Punished for murdering over 2000 (official 900) innocent Mumbaikars, how will the Victims and their families get Justice?
My Personal Experience - Before 1992-93 Bombay Riots, as a society, Bombay was not so deeply divided. I was merely 10 years old but I very clearly remember my Father arriving in our Gulf Hotel (Colaba) owned mini bus which use to offer Airport Transfer services to guests. But this time it was loaded with injured, bloody, hand & legs cut off, howling, burnt, inncoent victims of the riot from both Hindu & Muslim community from the Dharavi - South Central area of Mumbai. The bus had bullet holes fired from Police weapons as well as rioters. Those holes unfortunately still feature in the Present society and will continue to do so in the Future if we Do Not Act Now!!
It is perceived by many that only Muslims shout out to implement this report commissioned by then Govt. of Maharashtra but it is absolutely not the case. This report very clearly names most or all the people responsible for the deadly Bombay Riots that left thousands displaced and dead. I urge each one of you to please read the entire SriKrishna panel report on 1992-93 Bombay Riots. The purpose of this petition is to bring to light the Truth reveled by this report to the current generation of India which does not believe in Communal Politics and Demands Equal Justice for All.
Please sign this petition as a Mumbaikar, as a Maharashtrian, an Indian or last but not the least a Human. We call for Justice to thousands of Victims irrespective of their Religion or backgrounds. Until then we cannot expect True Peace in our Society.
By signing this petition you can support the Implementation of Justice Srikrishna Panel Report on the Bombay Riots 1992-93.
Jai Maharashtra, Jai Hind!!
The youngest amongst all, Farhan Azmi, is the president of SP Youth Cell, Mumbai, Maharashtra, Samajwadi party. He is also the son of a seasoned politician Abu Asim Azmi, ex Rajya Sabha Member, current MLA from Mumbai.
Having travelled to many countries like the U.K., U.S., France, Thailand, U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, etc. and having seen exceptional management and developmental work, I would like to take this opportunity to implement and bring about the same kind of infrastructure and civic amenities in our constituency.
I am extremely familiar with Mumbai's North Central constituency as my wife, in-laws, paternal uncles and aunts are from this area. I also have my restaurant, Café Basilico at Pali Hill and Citywalk Shoes showroom at Linking Road which have been running successfully for the past decade and more in this constituency.
As I go campaigning I see a gap between the elected representative (Priya Dutt) and the voters, who are looking for another option. Accessibility and credibility will be my mantra as a M.P from this constituency. Holistic development of this constituency is my motto.
A Chemist from Kurla (W)
"There is a high amount of anger among all of us. We held Sunil Dutt saab in high opinion, but we feel sad being let down by Priya. This youth is bright and is earnest I would rather vote for him."
A Teacher from Chandivali
"People formed a human chain and turned away Dutt as she has come here for the first time since over five years. Till now she has never bothered to step in our area and not even bothered to address our issues."
A Businessmen from Khar
"Farhan is young, dynamic, successful entrepreneur and has social connections in Bandra. I like to visit his place, café Bascilico in Bandra. He should be given a chance to be the representative this constituency for good."
"The condition of chawl is pathetic, the infrastructure development in and around our area is moving with snail speed. I wonder what our representatives are doing. Simply devise strategy on paper is not sufficient."
Mass Media student, Vile Parle
"Most of the redevelopment projects in Koli village in Bandra have been stuck for a long time because of flimsy reasons. It includes the coastal regulation zone (CRZ) and airport authority's obstructing approval methods."
A Retired officer, Hill Road
"Works with NGO, is not happy with his MP's track record. He said that while making any law in parliament, Dutt did not bother to seek opinion from her constituency's residents."
Activist from Kalina
"He is very approachable and does not have the airs of a politician. Whenever we had citizens' meetings, he made it a point to attend them to understand the local issues and subsequently resolve them," said Kulkarni."
