US Congressmen demand denial of visa to Modi
Date: 16 Mar 2005

Ahead of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the United States, demands have been made for denial of visa to him for the visit.

Two American Congressmen also said they are introducing a resolution condemning policies and actions of his state administration and urging the US government to do the same.

"The US has to decide whether or not a visa should be granted to Mr Modi to travel to the US this week," Democratic Congressman John Conyers and Republican Joe Pitts said in a press release faxed to correspondents.

"The resolution (by Conyers and Pitts) cites repeated attacks against Christian, Muslim and tribal populations in Gujarat," the release said.

Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and the Dean of the Congressional Black Caucus, representing all the Black members in Congress, charged: "Mr Modi has not been shy about proudly professing his anti-Christian, anti-Muslim and anti-tribal stances."

Pitts, a member of the India Caucus and the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, said, "Our Government should speak with one voice in condemning these policies and the actions of the Modi administration that have led to the death, torture and imprisonment of thousands in Gujarat."

Final Solution


  Final Solution is a study of the politics of hate. Set in Gujarat during the period February/March 2002 - July 2003, the film examines the genocidal violence of the Hindutva right-wing by exploiting the Godhra train incident and then goes on to document the various acts of brutality that marked the violence that followed. It travels with the election campaign during the Assembly elections in Gujarat in late 2002, and documents the spread of hate and fascism that accompanied it.
