The Supreme Court on Thursday granted bail to Bajrang Dal terrorist, Babu Bajrangi who was convicted in the 2002 massacre in the Naroda Patiya area of Ahmedabad, in which 97 Muslims were killed in broad daylight. Bajrangi had been serving a life sentence in the case, which occurred during the 2002 anti-Muslim genocide in Gujarat.…
Bajrangi, the then state convenor of Bajrang Dal had led a mob of Hindutva terrorists, who burnt alive local Muslims and raped women in the Naroda Patiya. Bajrangi himself had hit a pregnant Muslim woman, Kausar Banu, with a sword, and boasted later in a sting operation that he had taken out her fetus on the tip of his weapon, and then burnt her body. Although the court dismissed Bajrangi’s own admission of removing her fetus, it found him guilty of the cold-blooded murder of Kausar Banu.
His bail by the Supreme Court today received sharp criticism from people, who believe it is unjust to let loose a convicted terrorist, who massacred Muslims in one of the worst riots in India.…
