19 Jan|Mon|6PM|The Fiction of Fact Finding
ALF will host a Talk by Manoj Mitta on his book on the Gujarat 2002 carnage titled “The Fiction of Fact Finding: Modi & Godhra”
Monday, the 19th of January, at 6.30 PM
The book sifts through the wealth of official material to contend that the fact-finding around the incident – riddled as it was with ambiguities and deceptions, gaps and contradictions – glossed over crucial pieces of evidence and thereby shielded the powers that be.
