February 28 - March 2, 2002, witnessed the murder of about 2,000 Muslims by militant Hindus in Gujarat, India. Women and children were victims of sexualized violence. Between 150,000-200,000 were internally displaced. Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his government, in command over the law enforcement machinery, were responsible for providing leadership and material support in the politically motivated and planned attacks.

Today, Narendra Modi continues as chief minister of Gujarat, as justice eludes the survivors.

In October 2007, the Tehelka newspaper released an investigative report based on a sting-operation, establishing the genocide to have been state sanctioned.

Tehelka editor TARUN TEJPAL speaks to the findings and their political and legal implications.

Introduced by Angana Chatterji for
The Social and Cultural Anthropology Program, California Institute of Integral Studies
