Godhra incident premeditated: Pak.

By B. Muralidhar Reddy

ISLAMABAD July 6. Pakistan tonight expressed the hope that India will now, ``instead of offering justification for the massacre of Muslims in Gujarat, take action against all those who planned, carried out or connived with the massacres."

Reacting to the report by the Indian Forensic Science Laboratory on the February 27 burning of a train coach in Godhra, Gujarat, the Foreign Office spokesperson here said the findings lead to the inescapable conclusion that the Godhra incident was a "premeditated act of savagery by Hindu fanatics to trigger a systematic massacre of Muslims in Gujarat.''

``This establishes the culpability of the State administration, especially its Chief Minister in one of the worst anti-Muslim riots in India,'' the spokesperson said in a statement.
