Sound Vision Staff Writer The Godhra train incident is what most reports about the violence in Gujurat, India point to as the starting point for the barbarism and massacre of Muslims that followed. This is why it is critical to understand exactly what happened there. About 60 people died in the train attack. Most of them were Hindu. Later on Hindu militants burned and looted Muslim properties for several days, resulting in about 5, deaths, according to Muslim sources. Initial reports on February 27 presented the incident as a pre-planned Muslim mob attack on the Sabarmati Express train against "innocent" Hindu activists who had begun traveling from the city of Ayodhya.

However, as the facts began to trickle out, a different picture has emerged. While it is true that many of the passengers were women and children, others were militant Hindu activists who were involved in various forms of hooliganism.

From the time these activists boarded the train on February 25 in Ayodhya until they reached Godhra on February 27, they unleashed a wave of mischief, terror and fear on their passengers, some of whom were also Muslim.

Rajiv Chandrasekaran, reporting in the March 6, edition of the Washington Post, details some of the "hooliganism" that took place: the militant activists exposed themselves to other passengers, pulled headscarves off Muslim women on the train, evicted a family of four in the middle of the night for refusing to join in chants glorifying the Hindu god Ram and refused to pay for tea and snacks they consumed at each train station.

These details are corroborated by eyewitness accounts. One of these comes from a group led by a few members of the Indian parliament who are trying to get the facts straight about the issue. It is headed by Dr. Amar Singh, a member of parliament from Samajwadi Party, who spoke with two of the Hindu victims of the train-burning incident in Godhra.

They revealed that, "all along the journey these Ramsevaks the Hindu militants were behaving like Gundas thugs. On stations they would chant anti-Muslim rhymes and slogans, insulting Muslim Holy places. There was teasing as well of both fellow passengers and women on the platforms. Samajwadi , Shabana Azmi M. They visited the hospital and there they found these two victims from a Hindu family of the Godhra incident. Events played out as expected. They refused to pay one tea vendor and even after beating him up, they threw him off the train," noted the Hindu eyewitnesses.

But in response to this behavior, the Hindu militants did not find passive tolerance. The fight began with rock throwing from both sides.

The compartment carrying the militants was found stockpiled with stones. While the stone-throwing was going on, apparently some Muslims threw a burning mattress below the compartment of these militants.

But the fire spread quickly, not allowing the passengers to run since the compartment was filled with kerosene and cooking gas carried by the passengers. The above description is based upon several reports in the Indian press. However, Muslims in the area add another point to this sad story. They say things got out of hand when the daughter of an old Muslim man with a small tea stall at the train station was kidnapped.

The Hindu militants argued with this old man, beat him up and pulled his beard. The year-old daughter who was also present at the station came forward as her father was being beaten and tried to save him from the Hindu militants. She kept pleading and begging to them to stop beating her father and leave him alone. But instead of listening to her woes, the Hindu militants lifted the young girl, took her inside their compartment and closed its door.

By the time the train halted completely, it was about one kilometer away from the railway station. These two men then came to the bogey in which the girl was and started to bang at the door asking the militants to release the girl.

Hearing the chaos, people in the vicinity near the tracks started to gather near the train. The boys and the mob which included women that had now gathered near the compartment requested the Hindu militants to return the girl. But instead of doing this, they started closing their windows. This infuriated the mob and they retaliated by pelting stones at the compartment. The sections beside compartment S-6 on both sides contained VHP militants.

They started attacking the mob which had gathered to save the girl, with long bamboo sticks attached to them. This is when the anger became uncontrollable and some people in the crowd started using diesel and petrol from trucks and rickshaws standing nearby and burned down the compartment. Even the government-owned All India Radio reported that the whole incident was provoked by the traveling Hindu militants.

The Radio staff however was reprimanded by the BJP government. But no one had imagined all this would turn into such a big tragedy. It remains to be seen how the BJP will handle the fallout of this horrific violence.
