The report squarely places responsibility for the 1980 riots on a prominent leader within the Muslim League and his supporters. Tragically, these riots resulted in the loss of 83 lives, with numerous others sustaining injuries. The findings, as submitted by Justice Saxena of the Allahabad High Court, uphold the police actions as acts of self-defense. It clarifies that the police fired in response to immediate threats.

Notably, the report implicates a Muslim League leader and select supporters for their roles in instigating the riots.

Absolving RSS And Hindu Organizations:

A key takeaway from the report is the explicit exoneration of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and other Hindu organizations from any culpability in the 1980 Muradabad riots. The report firmly underscores that neither the RSS nor the Bharatiya Janata Party orchestrated secret meetings. They did not incite retaliatory actions against Muslims. The report emphasizes that an extensive analysis of facts conclusively indicates the non-involvement of these organizations. It is evident that each instance was primarily influenced by the actions of Muslim League leader Dr. Shamim Ahmad Khan and his supporters, driven by their political aspirations and willingness to challenge authorities.

Crucial Role Of Muslim League Leader:

The commission’s findings underscore the pivotal role Dr. Shamim Ahmad Khan, his supporters, and affiliated members of the Muslim League played. Furthermore, the report sheds light on the measured response of law enforcement officers during Eid prayers. They resorted to firing only when imminent danger to lives was evident. This was not a result of aggression but a necessary measure for self-defence. The situation escalated due to rioter actions.

Recommendations And Conclusion:

The report doesn’t merely uncover past events; it also provides valuable insights for the future. It proposes strategies to manage and mitigate similar situations in the future, advocating for the use of loudspeakers to counter misinformation during times of crisis. The 1980 Muradabad riots are a chapter of history that the state and its people are reckoning with today, as the findings illuminate the complexity of the events that transpired.
