'God is great'- tweets a relieved Modi

The apex court today refused to pass any order on Modi's alleged inaction to contain the state-wide riots triggered by the Godhra train carnage and referred the matter to the concerned magistrate here for a decision.

The reaction of the 60-year-old BJP leader reflected his relief over the order as he was being accused time and again by opposition Congress and activists of culpability in 2002 riots.

Zakia, widow of former Congress MP Eshan Jaffery had filed a complaint in Supreme Court against Modi and 63 others for death of his husband and others in the 2002 Gulburg Society riots case.

Supreme Court had told the Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by former CBI chief R K Raghavan to look into the complaint of Jaffery. SIT submitted its report in which they had concluded that no direct evidence of involvement of Modi could be found.

The Supreme Court-monitored investigation culminated into a situation where the court said the SIT report has to be placed before the trial court for decision. This has come as a great relief for the Gujarat CM who was being accused time and again by Opposition Congress of culpability in 2002 riots.
