The Complete Picture: What Followed the 1993 Mumbai Bomb Blasts?

Following the execution of Yakub Memon  questions are being asked why justice has been denied to the victims of Mumbai riots 1992-93  and why no action has been taken against the culprits named in the Srikrishna Commission Report? 

What had happened during those fateful riots had been covered by the media then and was also finally  established by this Srikrishna Commission's Report. Similarly what happened in the following bomb blasts, described as the response to the preceding riots, had also been widely reported. 

What has, however, remained hidden from public knowledge and the watchful media eyes are the revolting stories of torture and humiliation of those who were arrested for their alleged involvement in these blasts.

In 2001 London based Indian Muslim Federation (IMF) distributed a detailed report, Prevention of Terrorism Or Religious Intolerance, Stories of Torture and Terror as Told by the Victims at at United Nations’ Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance (WCAR), held in Durban, South Africa 27 August – 1st September 2001.

However, thanks to 9/11, like all other reports presented and distributed in this Conference IMF’s report has also gone into oblivion. Since following the execution of Yakub Memon, Mumbai riots 1992-93 and Srikrishna Commission are in the news, to give a full picture and impact of the crimes committed against Muslims we are reproducing this report.
