Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)
The Final Solution is a 2003 documentary directed by Rakesh Sharma about the 2002 communal Gujarat Riots that arose as a response to the Godhra Train Burning incident on February 27, 2002, where 58 Hindus were burnt alive on a train carriage. An official estimate states that 254 Hindus and 790 Muslims were killed during the riots, with 223 more missing. The documentary consists mostly of interviews, with both Muslims and Hindus, of multiple generations, and both sexes, with different views regarding the causes, justifications, and the actual events of the violence that occurred, as well as their prospects for the future. The government of Gujurat at the time, led by Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was highly criticised throughout the documentary and was accused of inciting much of the rioting and not doing enough to halt it.
One of the interviewees was a small boy who claimed to have seen his relatives being killed in the riots. He said that he wanted to become a “fauji” (soldier) who would kill Hindus when he grew up. When asked why, he replied in Hindi, “Because they did the same.”

Screenings and Censoring: The movie was initially banned in India for about a year, till early 2005 for fears that massive communalism and radicalism would be ignited by its extremely inflammatory content. The Mumbai International Film Festival (MIFF), had denied the movie from being screened. A pilot movement to copy-and-redistribute the movie was held, briefly to protest the censoring of the movie screenings. The BBC has screened the movie. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Solution_(2003_film))

A no-nonsense, well-researched documentary containing footage the Indian media will never show. It does not exposition or proselytize, just shows the fact about what happened in Gujarat and its consequences.

Even though the film is banned in India, definitely try to get hold of a copy especially if you are Indian. The documentary clearly shows the insidious ways used by the RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal and BJP to spread their doctrine of hate and poison Hindu minds against Muslims just for the purposes of getting votes. See what is being done in the name of Hinduism.

    All lies, Muslims started this by killing Hindus and then cry and lie as they always do.
    Islam is not a religion of peace.

    • Peace

      If Islam isn’t the religion of peace then what is it? Do you have anything better to offer…

      • Human

        So much violence in 90% muslim countries so how can the religion claim to be peaceful. If Budism made the claim to be a peaceful way of life it will make 110% more sense. This is not prejudice but a simple fact everyone but extreme muslims accept. Please do not respond with ‘ the muslims are violent not the religion’ as the world no longer accepts this as a valid argument.

          Give me a break. Most of the world’s cocaine comes from Columbia, does that mean Catholicism is connected to drugs? No.

          Muslim countries are generally poorer than others, which leads to crime and violence. Not because of religion. And your statistics are shoddy, do you see lots of crime in Muslim countries like Malaysia? Senegal? Mauritania? No.

      Actually the Muslims did not start it, it was Hindu extremism. This all
      did not just happen over night, just like the so called al-qaeda grpup.
      They dont just wake up one day and massacre people. India was peaceful
      amongst themselves, 50Muslim, 50% Hindu, until about the End of
      Ghandi’s heavy influence. The British are to blame (of course), for
      tearing apart Indias way of life and dealings with each other. This
      documentary was not meant to tell all that. It was mean t to profile
      the violence. Not to dig into their history.

        Hey Fatima

        Your comment if India being peaceful before Gandhi betrays a profound lack of understanding of Indian history. There’s actually multiple instances of horrendous muslim atrocities on Hindus during the Islamic invasion and at various times throughout the Mughal period too. The celebrated historian Will Durant sums it up as – “The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in
        history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that
        civilization is a precious good, whose delicate complex of order and
        freedom, culture and peace, can at any moment be overthrown by
        barbarians invading from without or multiplying within.”

        Please let us not try and portray the factual incorrect image of “innocent” Muslims being prayed upon by the “demonic” Hindus.

      Try Pakistan for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Foolish Muslim minds ruled by Islam but no humanity, no wonder the Muslim world is burning.

    its noticable that all of this was going on around the same time as the kurd starvation in iraq, the invasion of kuwait, and the Bosniak Genocide.

    there is good documentary for society , to learn whats the bad result on our country when we are miss our huminty and give big preference to our religion. all of the man first think we are a human then we have any religion . all politicians stop doing bad politics. 
     

  • A. Singh

    Any killing of a innocent person regardless of their religion can never EVER be justified. The danger in India is that these types of incidents can flare up at any time as a result of actions by extreme elements within certain sections of society. I can not and will not understand the mob violence from Hindus that follows acts of terrorism like the train burning resulting in the mindless killing, rape, destruction and looting. Similar atrocities unfolded against the Sikhs following the assassination of indra gandhi. Pakistan is responsible for creating much of this Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Jain etc tension and must be stopped by the civilised world. Interesting and informative documentary.

    Hmmmm…. wonder why they wouldn’t want muslims in their country?

  • jagga

    ITS SAD TO SEE THE HATE BETWEEN TWO RELIGIONS AND COMMENTS FULL OF HATE BETWEEN TWO RELIGIONS, ALL I THINK WE NEED TO CREATE A NATIONAL STATE AND HAVE TO CRUSH THE RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS IN ORDER TO LIVE PEACEFULLY, PEOPLE ARE KILLING EACH OTHER OVER RELIGIONS, POLITICIANS WANTS TO ACT SMART AND SOMEWHERE I FEEL LIKE INDIA IS NOT THE BIGGEST DEMOCRACY, THERE IS A SIGH OF DICTATORSHIP, WE DO HAVE A LABEL OF DEMOCRACY HOWEVER THE ESSENCE OF DEMOCRACY IS STILL MISSING, PEOPLE WAKE UP TRY TO BUILD YOURSELF ECONOMICALLY RATHER THEN HATING OTHER PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF THEIR CASTE AND RELIGION, NARENDRA MODI IS DEFIANTLY not a good leader.

  • fred bazzeeda

    death to all religions!
    they all incite hate, exclusiveness, arrogance, ignorance, de-evolution, hypocrisy and holier-than-though portrayals.
    free thinking, logic, common sense will be the true saviour of man….not any of the beliefs of invisible men in the skies…
    peace,

  • Ignorant

    Uhh yeah, solution to something better is the belief in self, loving self, turning to self when problems arise rather than some mythical man playing in the clouds… Time to grow up and face reality, sorry children.
