ALL INDIA MUSLIM
Revocation/Refusal of US Visa to Modi No Humiliation for Nation
Only an Indication that World has not Forgotten Gujarat Genocide
: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim
Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) expresses its satisfaction at the refusal of diplomatic visa and the revocation of the tourist visa by the Government of the USA to Shri Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of Gujarat, as requested by several NGO’s in the USA and some members of the US Congress.
The refusal of visa shows that the world at large has not forgotten the Gujarat Genocide.
The secular and liberal forces in India and abroad hold Shri Modi personally guilty of complicity in the carnage organized by the forces close to his party with the direct support of his Government, its bureaucracy and police.
Shri Modi escaped dismissal in 2002, primarily because the then Union Government was led by his own party. Having ignited communal fire, he went on to win the Assembly election but his electoral victory did not absolve him from the charge of abetment of genocide in the eyes of the world and of a vast majority of the people of our country under international law.
The Government of India has no reason to be apologetic or unhappy about the revocation/refusal of visa. This was not an official visit by a Chief Minister on official business. It was an unofficial visit at the invitation of a private body close to those who had financed Gujarat carnage. Perhaps the Government of India was unmindful of the repercussions in requesting the USA for a diplomatic visa.
The refusal of the visa does not constitute any insult to the Government or to the people of India; it is an assertion by a State of its unquestionable right to decide who will enter the country and on what terms.
The refusal does not make Modi a martyr to India’s honour but shows how grievously he has tarnished the world image of our country.
The AIMMM is of the view that after recent disclosures before the Nanavati Commission and by the Indian Express, the Government of India should consider dismissal of the Modi Government unless he steps down on his own or is replaced by his legislature
