    Narendra Modi can't be blamed for 2002 Gujrat riots: Senior IPS Officer K P S Gill

    In his book, Gill has lavished praise on Modi saying he had "sincere" intentions to end the violence and accused other parties of trying to defame him.

    NEW DELHI: Former DGP of Punjab K P S Gill, who had served as security advisor to the Gujarat Chief Minister in 2002, said tonight that Narendra Modi cannot be blamed for post-Godhra riots as it is the job of the police leadership to respond to law and order situations.

    "In law and order situations, it is the police leadership which has to respond and not the political leadership," Gill said when asked by reporters about his assessment of Modi's handling of post-Godhra events.

    He was speaking at the launch of his biography - 'KPS Gill: The Paramount Cop' where the gathering included eminent personalities like Punjab Kesari Group Editor-in-Chief Vijay Kumar Chopra, Indian Express Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta, former CBI Director P C Sharma and others.

    In the book, Gill has lavished praise on Modi saying he had "sincere" intentions to end the violence and accused other parties of trying to defame him.

    "I realised that people of all political parties who were anti-Modi and anti-BJP were taking advantage of this mayhem and making all efforts to defame Modi one way or the other," he says.

    He charged the policemen and the administration had become communal after the incident in Godhra and Modi, who had just become the CM, did not have proper grip over the state machinery.

    Speaking to reporters, he said that after taking charge as the security advisor of the state, he had visited all places where violence had taken place and policemen from top to bottom refuted having received any direction of the type being mentioned.

    He also said a majority of the deaths in the riots had taken place in 5-6 incidents.

    Addressing the audience, Gill said some of his family members did not like his comments.

    He told reporters that while his family members had been reading newspapers, he had experienced the developments.

    Gill had been appointed in May, 2002, as the security advisor to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to bolster efforts to effectively check communal violence in the state.​

    #And the Congress Party should remember - Their senior politicians were literally overwhelmed at the appointment of Sh. KPS Gill as the Security Advisor to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi....

    Let me quote an old report published in TOI on May 3, 2002:-

    All the Congis and their fellow travelers would be happy if more Hindus than Muslims had died in the riots. The psychology of Congress and secularists are rooted in hatred of Hindus, they don't give a damn about Muslims or any other 'minorities'. What they really hate is any assertion of power by Hindus in any form. For them an ideal Hindu is one who makes self loathing statements about himself, his ancestors and his traditions and grovels before secular ideologues all the time.

    I always find it amusing, as well as sad to some extent, that the perpetrator(perceived or actual) is blamed for the crime.
