The Supreme Court of India's decision to overturn the Gujarat government's remission order for 11 Hindutva men in Bilkis Bano gangrape case and murder of seven of her family members during the 2002 Gujarat Muslim genocide is met with acclaim from opposition leaders, while members of the ruling party stay silent.
Bilkis Bano, the survivor of one of the most horrific crimes during the 2002 Gujarat Muslim genocide, said today is "truly the New Year" for her as the 11 Hindutva men responsible for killing her family and gangraping her will soon be back behind the bars.
Bilkis Bano's petition challenging the early release of 11 convicts who raped her and killed her family during the 2002 Gujarat genocide is valid, the Supreme Court said today.
The Supreme Court on Thursday observed that in the Bilkis Bano case, the convicts had the privilege of getting parole for many days, unlike several other convicts.
