New Delhi: Former Delhi High Court Chief Justice Rajinder Sachar on Thursday described a Gujarat court verdict in Gulbarg Housing Society case as a “stain” on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, considering that he was the Chief Minister in Gujarat when the killings took place.



In a statement, the former President of Peoples Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) also deplored “communal approach” by “Hindu Chauvinists” who were resisting shifting of displaced Muslim families to a locality following demolition of their homes.

According to a report in a national daily, residents of Kapurai —a neighbourhood in Vadodara where about 300 displaced families, mostly Muslims, are supposed to be relocated following the demolition of their homes in Suleiman Chawl —have written to the Vadodara Municipal Corporation protesting against the move.

The letter states that allowing Muslims to move into the locality will “hamper the peace-loving nature here” as their “daily activity involves assaulting and abusing”, the report said.
