FDCA condemns Godhra and Gujarat riots

New Delhi: The Forum for Democracy and Communal Amity (FDCA) has voiced its concern over the continuing violence in Gujarat and has vociferously condemned the Godhra train carnage and Gujarat massacre. In a press release issued here recently, the FDCA has also demanded severe punishment of the culprits and immediate restoration of peace and communal harmony.

According to the press release, the Forum organised a meeting at Gandhi Peace Foundation in which several important decisions were taken. In accordance with its key decisions, the Forum has decided that a national level delegation would be soon visiting Gujarat to take stock of the situation. As per decision, priorities would be immediately accorded to immediate rehabilitation of the victims, de-escalation of communal tension and promotion of communal harmony. The delegation would also be demanding immediate rehabilitation of more than one lakh affected people huddled in different relief camps. During the course of its visit the delegation would be meeting the government officials with a charter of demands and would make them see reason for urgently providing essential facilities to the NGOs so that they may complete the work of rehabilitation of the victims.

Besides visiting Gujarat, the Forum has decided to organise a National Conference either at New Delhi or Bangalore. State level and district level programmes would also be organised for the purpose of enlisting the support of common people in promotion of peace and harmony.

The Forum for Democracy and Communal Amity, according to the press release, has decided to submit a charter of demands to the distinguished members of Parliament for discussion in the Indian parliament. In its charter of demands, the FDCA has called for an independent inquiry by a sitting Supreme Court judge to be conducted into the incidents and all those found guilty must be punished as per the existing provisions of the law. The FDCA has demanded that investigation into the Godhra carnage and the riots which followed should be entrusted to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Besides the CBI investigating their role in the riots, criminal charges should be framed against all those police officials, the politicians and the bureaucrats who have either shown inaction or participated in the riots. The FDCA has asked the authorities to see to it that the destroyed shrines and the religious places be rebuilt and their status quo maintained as on 26 February 2002.

Shafi Moonis, general secretary FDCA, Kuldip Nayyar, a noted columnist, N. D. Pancholi, Abdul Moid Khan, M. A. Qayyum, Dr. Syed Farooq, Ejaz Ahmed Aslam, Dr. Gouri Bazaz Malick, and S. S. Hussaini, participated in the meeting.
