One of the most significant events of this week was the commemoration of 10th anniversary of Godhra train carnage, which left 59 karsevaks dead and triggered one of worst communal riots in Gujarat that claimed the lives of over 1200 Muslims. 27th February was marked by a slew of events with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad taking out a rally and Non-Governmental Organisations coming together to demand justice for the riot victims.
Here's a video of some of the riot victims singing "Hum Honge Kamayab' in the hope for justice.
