Implement Justice Srikrishna Panel Report on 1992-93 Bombay Riots

The perpetrators of the Deadly Bombay Riots 1992-93 are Still Roaming Free. They divided us before and they're doing it once again. By signing this petition you support the Implementation of Justice Srikrishna Panel Report on the Bombay Riots 1992-93. Unless these killers are not Punished for murdering over 2000 (official 900) innocent Mumbaikars, how will the Victims and their families get Justice.

Bellur Narayanaswamy Srikrishna (born 21 May 1941) is an Indian jurist and a retired Judge of the Supreme Court of India. From 1993–98, he headed the well-known Commission of Inquiry, the "Srikrishna Commission" as it became known, which investigated causes and apportioned blame for the Bombay Riots of 1992–93. 

In 1993, he assumed charge of the Commission of Inquiry into the riots that took place in Bombay in 1992–93. The "Srikrishna Commission", submitted its report in 1998, and generated widespread interest in India and abroad. In September 2001, Justice Srikrishna was appointed as the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court and on 3 October 2002, was appointed as a Judge of the Supreme Court of India. On 21 May 2006, as per rules, on reaching the age of superannuation of sixty-five years, Justice Srikrishna retired from the Supreme Court of India.

In 1992–93, the city of Mumbai was rocked by communal riots between the Hindu and Muslim communities after the demolition of the Babri Masjidin Ayodhya by thousands of Hindu Karsevaks. While communal riots are not unusual in modern Indian history, these riots were particularly startling in light of Mumbai's largely peaceful past. Above all the Bombay Riots appeared to compromise the much-vaunted image of the city as cosmopolitan, secular and tolerant. Further, the riots appeared to solidify the image of Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray who scathingly criticised the judiciary.

He, then a relatively junior Judge of the Bombay High Court, accepted the task of investigating the causes of the riots, something that many of his colleagues had turned down. For five years, until 1998, he examined victims, witnesses and alleged perpetrators. Detractors came initially from left-secular quarters who were wary of a judge who was a devout and practising Hindu. The Commission was disbanded by the Shiv Sena-led government in January 1996. To this date, the recommendations of the Commission have neither been accepted nor acted upon by the Maharashtra Government.

SriKrishna Panel report on 1992-93 Bombay Riots is something that the Youth of India needs to acknowledge. It becomes almost compulsory for us Young Citizens of India to know what really happened and was Justice done with over 2000 deaths (900 officially)? We often ask each other, Why are we so divided as Indians? Why does Communal Politics play almost the Entire Role during Elections? 

My Personal Experience - Before 1992-93 Bombay Riots, as a society, Bombay was not so deeply divided. I was merely 10 years old but i very clearly remember my Father arriving in our Gulf Hotel (colaba) owned mini bus which use to offer Airport Transfer services to guests. But this time it was loaded with injured, bloody, hand & legs cut off, howling, burnt, inncoent victims of the riot from both Hindu & Muslim community from the Dharavi - South Central area of Mumbai. The bus had bullet holes fired from Police weapons as well as rioters. Those holes unfortunately still feature in the Present society and will continue to do so in the Future if we Do Not Act Now!!

It is perceived by many that only Muslims shout out to implement this report commissioned by then Govt. of Maharashtra but it is absolutely not the case. This report very clearly names most or all the people responsible for the deadly Bombay Riots that left thousands displaced and dead. I urge each one of you to please read the entire SriKrishna panel report on 1992-93 Bombay Riots. The purpose of this petition is to bring to light the Truth reveled by this report to the current generation of India which does not believe in Communal Politics and Demands Equal Justice for All.

Please sign this petition as a Mumbaikar, as a Maharashtrian, an Indian or last but not the least a Human. We call for Justice to thousands of Victims irrespective of their Religion or backgrounds. Until then we cannot expect True Peace in our Society. 

Jai Maharashtra, Jai Hind!!
