Why did Modi take 5 days to go to riot-affected parts in Ahmedabad and a month to fulfill Muslim sufferers in a refugee camp? Why have been forensic specialists referred to as to determine the burnt Godhra trainer in simple terms after months, even though it were open to the general public all through that interval? What precisely did Modi have fun in his Gaurav Yatra, which he introduced inside six months of the carnage? Why did the Gujarat police sit down for 6 years at the name info files of the insurrection interval? Scrupulously researched, The Fiction of Fact-finding attracts telling parallels among Gujarat 2002 and the 1984 bloodbath of Sikhs in Delhi to underline an insidious development in Indian democracy: the subversion of the legal justice process, lower than a shroud of felony platitudes, by means of the ruling dispensation.
