New Delhi: Former Gujarat IPS Officer, RB Sreekumar’s book on 2002, Gujarat riots launched in Urdu and Hindi on Saturday here in which he exposed the complicity of the state government headed by the Chief Minister Narendra Modi in horrific riots.
Sreekumar wrote his eyewitness account of the 2002 riots in great detail in his book, “Gujarat : Behind the Curtain” which is the most authentic eyewitness account of those riots.
R B Sreekumar was the additional director general of police ( intelligence) during the Gujarat riots of 2002. He tried his level best to stop and contain the riots and later worked hard to get the criminals punished. He made a number of detailed submissions before the Nanavati Commission- charged to probe the riots.
As a result of his activities to uphold law and justice, Sreekumar was persecuted by the Modi regime which shunted him to ceremonial posts and denied him his due promotion which he later received through the order of a court.
Somehow the English edition was not allowed to gain currency in the media and public discussion. Now Delhi publisher, Pharos Media, has brought out the Urdu and Hindi translations of this book which far exceeds in importance any other published material on those riots so far. Soon Pharos Media will also bring out the Gujarati translation of this book so that this important document is read and discussed bringing as it chronicles the true story of those gory crimes and how the powers that be tried to shield the criminals during and after the riots. Both Urdu and Hindi editions are now out and each is reasonably priced at Rs 250. Pharos Media is planning to bring out a new edition of Sreekumar’s English book as well.
