Narendra Modi might have scored many resounding victories as Gujarat CM over the last ten years post Godra riots in the state. He led his party BJP to power crushing all his opponents in the recently held general elections across the county to become Prime Minister. This might have forced the adamant and stubborn US to change its policy of refusing visa to according red carpet welcome to Modi. However Godra riots are haunting PM in US.
According to the latest a US court issued summons to Narendra Modi a day before his landmark visit to the nation. American Justice Centre (AJC), New York based organisation obtained summons from the US Federal Court for the Southern District of New York in a suit filed with two survivors. Filed under the Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA) and the Torture Victim Protection Act (TVPA), the 28-page complaint charges Modi for committing committing crimes against humanity, extra-judicial killings, torture and inflicting mental and physical trauma on the victims, mostly from the Muslim community.
The group obtained summons earlier against other Indian leaders like former PM Manmohan Singh and Congress Party President Sonia Gandhi. Another group Alliance for Justice and Accountability (AJA) is getting ready to show black flags to Modi at his Madison Square Garden public reception on Sep 28.
