India has an intense nationalism, is a greatest country on earth! India is multi cultural, pluralistic Nation. She has to arrive in economic, agriculture, social, educational, health and hygiene next to China. But, in reality corruption, religious chauvinism, pseudo politics, ignored minorities, industries employing not even one percent of the population is disturbing. Amity India strives to expose India’s anti secularist force , being detrimental to India’s progress and to the social justice.
of the Indian Constitution
Memorandum to the Governor
17.8.2011, a delegation of eminent citizens of Gujarat and
Mumbai met the Governor of Gujarat and apprised her of the
cynical subversion of the Constitutional Machinery and
Constitutional Mandate within the State.
Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP),a citizens'
group committed to
rule of law,
formed in Mumbai
the terrible communal carnage in Gujarat.
Calendar Of Achievements
(April 2002-February 2006)
CJP’s activities in the last 4 years have been focussed on legal
interventions to ensure justice for the victims and punishment for the
perpetrators of the Gujarat genocide.
Success Stories So Far:
1. Reluctant CM made to spend extra crores on relief
Gujarat High Court
(April 2002) to make the state
government provide and pay for adequate relief to the 1.7 lakh people
rendered homeless and destitute; petitions against government officials
coercing relief camp managers into closing their camps even when victims
have nowhere to go.
Result: High Court orders ensure that many relief camps stay
open until September-October 2002; a highly reluctant state government
made to spend several additional crores on relief measures.
2. ‘Modi chief author and architect of genocide’: Tribunal
a Concerned Citizens Tribunal headed by three retired SC and
Mumbai High Court judges for a citizens’ probe into the carnage (May 2002).
Result: The Tribunal’s 3-volume report, ‘Crime Against
2002) that remains the most incisive
document on the genocidal violence in Gujarat. Its recommendations have
triggered a national campaign for institutional reform to prevent mass
crimes in future.
3. SC Orders Transfer And Retrial Of Best Bakery Case
Action: CJP petitions the
SC along with Zahira Sheikh, asking for a retrial of the Best Bakery
massacre case outside Gujarat (August 2003).
Results:SC decides to monitor the progress of ALL the
carnage related cases, appoints an amicus curiae(October 2003).
q In a historic and
unprecedented judgement (April 2004),
SC orders retrial of the Best Bakery case outside Gujarat (in
q The DGP of Gujarat is directed
to reopen and review the over 2,000 incidents of violence that had
been closed by the state police.
4. No votes over dead bodies
Action: CJP submits a
detailed and a well-documented memorandum and leads delegation of
victims to the Chief Election Commissioner, Lyngdoh, challenging the
Gujarat government’s claim that the situation in Gujarat was normal to
ensure a free and fair trial. (August 2002).
Result: CEC rejects the Gujarat government’s claim of
normalcy and orders postponement of polls. Subsequently, when the CEC's
decision was challenged in the SC, CJP filed written arguments before
the Constitutional bench opposing snap polls in Gujarat.
5. Godhra victims’ kin, too, repose faith in CJP
families from Ahmedabad, each of whom had lost one or more family member
in coach S-6 of the Sabarmati Express train tragedy at Godhra, approach
CJP for legal assistance. CJP files an application in SC (October 2003)
for a retrial of the Godhra arson case outside Gujarat as the affected
families did not expect to get justice in the state.
Result:The Godhra trial is stayed by the SC. The plea for
re-investigation and transfer is pending.
6. Guilty cop Pandey shunted out of CBI
Action: CJP petitions SC
challenging the NDA government’s malafide promotion and transfer of
former Ahmedabad Police Commissioner, PC Pandey (whose own role during
the carnage needs investigation), as Deputy Director, CBI.
Result: The Union government moves PC Pandey out of the CBI
7. Compensation to victims of terrorism in J&K
Action: On the request of
the families concerned, CJP pursues the J&K government asking for
expeditious payment of compensation to the Mumbai-based Chandrakant Shah

in the bomb blast in a hotel in Pahalgam, Kashmir (June 2004).
