Surat: Families, which were victimised during the communal riots of 2002 in Gujarat, have expressed their happiness at the Gujarat High Court''s green signal to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to interrogate state Chief Minister Narenda Modi for his role in the riots.


Zakia Jaffrey, whose husband Ehsan Jaffrey, ex-Congress MP was killed during the Gulburg society riots along with 39 others, hailed the decision.


"I am happy with the High Court decision. Now, the hidden facts will be known to the world. I am happy that the team will investigate Modi's role," said Jaffrey.


The court directive came in response to a petition filed by Zakia Jaffrey.


In her complaint Jaffrey alleged that Modi, his cabinet colleagues, police officials and senior bureaucrats aided and abetted the riots.


Meanwhile, the Congress Party welcomed the High Court's decision and also shared Jaffrey's views.


"I don't want to make any comment on the decision since it is sub-judice. The Supreme Court is looking into it. I think it is the beginning of justice in Gujarat," said Shaktisinh Gohil, Leader of Opposition.


The Supreme Court had earlier ordered the SIT to probe the complaint within three months and submit its report. Maliwad, who was acquitted, has said that the Supreme Court had directed the SIT to look into Jaffrey's complaint.

This action on Modi is the best news for the wheels of justice has been opened on the tragedy in Gujarat 2002. It shows no political person can get away from our Justice system. I also hope the blocked case of Sikh genocide by Rajiv Gandhi will also open. This will restore our freedom which was violated by influent Indians. Those who played a roll in blocking too , need to be questioned in our Supreme Court. Once these issues are solved our nation will shine even brighter.
