The darkest period of India’s history post 1947 was endured for 21 months beginning this day in 1975. The fascist tendencies in the @INCIndia led by the then PM Smt. Indira Gandhi unleashed rule of terror by putting the entire opposition in prison. #Emergency1975
2/The fascist tendencies of the @INCIndia continued into 21 century.

Instead of working to get justice for karsevaks burnt alive (women & children, in particular)in #Godhra, these tendencies supported non-state actors to file concocted cases against the then Guj CM @narendramodi
3/ Multiple cases in various courts were filed. For over 16 years relentlessly pursued with the zeal of well funded #NGOs

#SupremeCourt on this matter in a related case y’day observed,“a coalesced effort of the disgruntled officials of the State of Gujarat along with others…”

It was a Hindu-Muslim love story that leapt out of the flames of the #GujaratRiots of 2002 in #Ahmedabad's Naroda Patiya. It then went through the usual tortuous turns, so typically Indian, and the next two years saw the couple fight tough battles and go through waves of pain.
2. The police in Ahmedabad had turned matters worse for the lovelorn couple. @rajkamaljha
3. Even as the Muslim girl was illegally held at a home for the destitute despite turning 18, the authorities and police in #Ahmedabad had remained undecided about who should start her release procedure. #Gujarat #GujaratRiots #2002riots

On April 23, SC in a detailed decision, described the tragedy of Ms. Bano’s past. The court had noted how her infant daughter was “smashed” against the wall in their house before her very own eyes. Ms. Bilkis was herself pregnant when she was gangraped by the mob. #GujaratRiots
Seven members of her family were also killed by the mob at Randhikpur village near Ahmedabad on March 3, 2002. In April, SC ordered the Gujarat government to pay her the compensation, provide a job and a house in two weeks. But nothing had come out of it.
The court had also ordered the Gujarat government to withdraw the pension benefits of three police officers involved in the Bilkis Bano case probe. The Bombay High Court had upheld the life imprisonment sentence of 11 accused in the gangrape case.
