* The world will never forget that :
the penultimate step towards Adolf Hitler gaining complete control over the destiny of Germany were taken on the night of
27th February 1933 when the Reichstag (German Parliament) was destroyed by fire. The fire was almost certainly planned by the Nazis,
Goebbels and Goering in particular. A Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, was made scapegoat for the fire, but the main outcome was
that Hitler was given an excuse to have all the Communist deputies of the Reichstag arrested.
* The world will never forget that :
the coach S-6 of the Sabarmati Express Train was set on fire at Godhra Station on 27th February 2002, Till today, the truth of this fire which
killed 59 people, has not been established. That night, a high level meeting was held in Gandhinagar. People who have spoken against this
meeting have either been killed or been punished. The world wants to know what transpired at that meeting and why so many innocent people
were killed in Gujarat in the days and months that followed.
* The world will never forget that :
in the Social Science Textbooks of Gujarat State, Hitler is eulogized. The Holocaust is conveniently forgotten….it seems as though the
extermination of six millions of Jews just did not take place.

(An Austrian Court has convicted British historian David Irving for denying the Holocaust. He has been charged under law that defines
denial of the holocaust as a crime. Many European Democracies including France and Germany have similar laws that protect the
memory of the Holocaust from any kind of questioning. Such laws derive legitimacy from the understanding that denial of the Holocaust
is only the first step before justifying a crime unparallel in History - from THE TIMES OF INDIA editorial, 27th FEBRUARY 2006).
* The world will never forget that :
thousands of the victims of the Gujarat Carnage still wait for justice. The Best Bakery Case Judgment has come as a ray of hope….there are many
victims who eagerly wait more of such Judgments.
* The world will never forget 27th February 2002 and its aftermath

Just “not forgetting” does not help…… Act now and together, to ensure that such acts are never repeated in the History of Mankind – very specially that JUSTICE Triumphs and TRUTH is Vindicated in Gujarat !
