 Crime Against Humanity - report of the Concerned Citizens Tribunal
Gujarat and indeed the whole country was on red alert due to the aggressive mobilisation by the VHP for building the temple at Ayodhya (March 15).
In the attacks all over Gujarat, as recorded before the Tribunal, areas were besieged for 7-8 hours, by mobs of over a few thousand (this varied in different cases but the marked similarity was the scale of the attackers).
In a situation such as post-Godhra Gujarat, when huge, organised mobs of the majority community were attacking the minorities, when the state government and the administration sided with the majority, it was a clear case of a breakdown of the constitutional machinery in the state.

 India: Justice, the victim - Gujarat state fails to protect women from violence - Amnesty International   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
The Indian state of Gujarat has a history of communal violence whereby violence was perpetrated by both Hindus and Muslims.(1) While the violence in 2002 followed a fire in a train which killed 59 Hindus, it cannot be likened to earlier patterns of communal violence.
Trial courts in Gujarat failed to ensure justice for victims in a variety of ways, including by their mechanical approach to evidence, failure to use available remedial procedures and failure to ensure a peaceful atmosphere in the court.
Police in Gujarat in 2002 did not ensure that victims recorded their statements before magistrates; such statements are signed and can be used as evidence in court and are hence more difficult to withdraw when witnesses come under pressure.

The Centre’s role in ignoring the Gujarat carnage and concentrating on Gujarat is both apparent and condemnable.
For the rest, he did tell them he had come to share their sorrow but he said not a word about his constitutional obligation to ensure that the persons responsible for their acute trauma and grief would be subjected to the due process of law and punished.
When asked by journalists, Advani said he agreed with the PM in condemning the ‘communal violence’ in Gujarat: "It was definitely a blot on the nation." The communal flare-up in Gujarat spoilt the good track record of the coalition government at the Centre, he said.
