this is why one has a certain respect for the american criminal justice system: even after forty years, they do convict the murderers. goodman, cheney and schwerner -- two jews and a black -- were killed by white racists in 1964 (see 'mississippi burning'), and in 2005 at least one person is convicted.
will the godhra murderers ever face justice? of course not. india's criminal justice system, once considered incorruptible, is not any longer. it has become an instrument of the predatory, fascist, stalinist state.
will the murderers of rajan during the emergency ever be brought to justice? of course not. see the heartbreaking malayalam film 'piravi' (the birth) about the aged father searching in vain for his son who 'disappeared'.
