2002 Gujarat riot survivors denied permission to protest by police

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Survivors from Naroda Patiya massacre of the infamous Gujarat riots of 2002 were denied permission to stage a protest by the state police. Naroda witnessed the butchering of around 50 Muslim residents by the rioters.

The survivors had sought permission from Naroda authorities to protest in front of the Gujarat High Court, against the bail granted to former minister Maya Kodnani and her assistant in the riots case.

“First we sought permission to hold a demonstration in front of Gujarat High Court, but we were told to get permission from the High Court registrar. Then we demanded to hold our demonstration at the Naroda Patiya state transport workshop, but we were denied permission,” Salim Sheikh one of the survivor told a news agency.

The authorities said the permission was denied as the venue of the protest was on the national highway and the time sought was during the peak traffic hours. It further claimed that the venue was under the authority of Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation from where the permission had to be sought, but wasn’t.

The protesters were planning to hold the protest on 2nd April from 4PM to 7PM.
