Ishaq G. Seth - e-mail <email@example.com> Reporter Card No. D-37707 Government of Gujarat All Muslim property has been systematically been erased by the Hindus. We were living in our community therefore we have managed to defend ourselves but those whose number in the surrounding villages was small their property was looted and they were hunted like dogs.There was and still no law enforcement agency in sight. Still the situation is tense an uneasy calm prevails. Those who saved their lives now think what will happen next. Two days ago we were surrounded by Hindu mobs armed with pipes machetes swords supported by police. When the Hindu mobs attacked thrice the police guns were only pointed at Muslims. We put a SOS for help and I believe the uneasy calm that exists is due to the international pressure. Till now no media has come to cover the plight of Muslims here. In the town of Atarsumba two of our Muslim brother of our community were dragged back into their shop locked and then burnt alive. We were so far could not even hear their screams but we did get to see the burnt and charred remains of what was their bodies in a decomposed manner more than 30 hours later. Yesterday in 4 days we got milk and water. We are fortunate that in the community we were having food to eat. Others have been less fortunate. We are divided into four community parts in four different areas each to fend for its self. We total about 20,000 in all, divided in four parts minus the women & children the population of men reduces to half or less. Smaller communities and individuals phoned for help. We were helpless. It was a situation where, either we defend ourselves and our wife and children or go on a suicide mission to rescue others. Those who fell in 5 days of violence number over 300-400 in our area alone. The situation was no different in the big cities of Ahmedabad and surat Baroda etc. Parts of Gujarat still burn as I write to you. Yet the chief Minister and the Home Minister say there is no law and order problem. There is a relaxation in curfew today for 5 hours. Curfew..., which was all along only for Muslims and not for the arsonist and murdering Hindu mobs. If things don?t change soon, we can?t envisage the outcome and consequences of the ongoing situation. Today each city and each town has divided in to two parts. The Muslim part and the Hindu part. What this will eventually do is tear the fabric of the Indian soiety; those Hindus and even friends who did this have now sowed a seed of hatred in every heart. The question of terrorism that the India talks about is this. What will they do now to the terrorist Hindus? What happened in Godhra as Muslims we condemn such act, but also on the other hand there no justification of the massacre that is being carried out by Hindu terrorists in the name of retaliation. The Government of India has so far been unsuccessful in controlling Hindu fanatic Terrorists arsonist and Murderers. Hindu terrorists has crossed all limits of human rights. Today we turn to the muslim community world wide for assistance and Dua for the the plight of Muslims in Gujarat and our town of Himmatnagar.
