Rajiv Gandhi to Narendra Modi: Impunity in India for Mass Violence

PUJA Gallery, 729 Maxwell, Chicago, IL 60607

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.

After receiving the largest ever electoral mandate, Rajiv Gandhi was found to be blameless for the slaughter of 3,000 Sikhs on his watch in the Capital of India. A similar charade of subverting the criminal justice system under a shroud of legal platitudes laid the ground for Modi's elevation this year to prime minister despite the killing of over 1,000 Muslims on his watch in Gujarat.

Manoj Mitta is the only author to have written books on the two most egregious instances of mass violence and impunity in post-colonial India. In 2007, he co-authored a book on the violence targeting Sikhs, When a Tree Shook Delhi: The 1984 Carnage and its Aftermath. Earlier this year, Mitta came out with a book on the 2002 Gujarat violence targeting Muslims, titled The Fiction of Fact-Finding: Modi and Godhra. A senior editor with The Times of India, the largest circulated English newspaper in the country, Mitta writes on legal, human rights and public policy issues.
