Gujarat Riots (2002): The untold story of attacks on Hindus by Muslim mobs
Posted by jagoindia on November 3, 2007
According to the official estimates, the death toll for the Hindus during the Gujarat riots of 2002, stood at 254.
Much like the under-reporting of Hindu suffering elsewhere, in this case also the Hindu baiting media has provided virtually no coverage nor sympathy for the Hindu victims of virulent Muslim attacks, nor have there have been any calls for justice for these Hindu victims of Muslim terror from human rights organizations, Teesta Setalvad, or any other mainstream secular institution. It is almost as if Hindu lives do not matter, only Muslim lives do.
This post, taken from wikipedia is meant to highlight the atrocities on Hindu victims at the hands of Muslims.
Attacks on Hindus
Attacks on Hindus by Muslim mobs in Danilimda, Modasa, Himmatnagar, Bharuch, Sindhi Market, Bhanderi Pole, and other localities in the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat were perpetrated by Muslim mobs . The attacks have been described as “retaliatory” by Human Rights Watch. There was significant loss of life and property  . and many Hindu Dalits were rendered homeless.The attacks on the Dalit community were particularly severe. Among the more significant attacks was the one in Khariwadi of Shahpura slum. The Muslim manager of a nearby hotel rallied a group of Muslim youths and set the houses of the Dalits on fire, first taking care to remove all inhabitants of the Muslim houses to a safe place 35 Hindu families had their houses burnt down, and two girls were burnt alive. Asylum was provided to the Hindus by a Sindhi hotelier. Similar attacks were recorded against Dalits by Muslim mobs armed with swords in Behrampura. The attacks on Dalits have largely been ignored by the “secular” politicians, and several Hindu Nationalist organizations such as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bajrang Dal came to their aid.A BJP member and municipal corporator testified before the Nanavati-Shah commission that Muslims in the Amraiwadi area unfurled the Pakistani flag and raised pro-Pakistan slogans ten days after the Godhra riots, accompanied by cries demanding that “Kaffirs” be killed and their houses emptied. He said that attacks on Hindus were continuing in the area and claimed that riots were triggered after Muslims instigated them “with an intention of spreading fear”.In September 2002, at least 29 people were killed when suspected Islamic fundamentalist gunmen engaged in the Akshardham Temple attack in the city of Gandhinagar in Gujarat. The Pakistani ISI and Islamic terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba were accused of supporting the terrorists , but they have denied this accusation  .Over ten thousand Hindus were made homeless as a result of the Gujarat violence.  In several residential areas, including Mahajan No Vando, Hindus were targeted following calls for retaliation. After looting the Hindu homes, the threw kerosene on the roofs and ignited their houses. According to one Hindu who lived through the violence.In the morning the mosques began announcing that Islam was in danger, that there was poison in the milk. This is their code word. We are the only Hindus here, poison here means us. The rioting lasted between 2:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.Many Hindus fortified their residential areas and did not leave them to go to work, following a young man being killed on the way to work by Muslim mobs.
