Welcoming the verdict in the 2002 Naroda-Patiya riots case in Gujarat, Law Minister Salman Khurshid today said the judgement enhances faith of the people in the legal system.

“For all of us, it is a matter of comfort that faith in the legal system gets enhanced and strengthened. Every time this kind of inhuman act is made accountable, people who are responsible should feel a sense of reprimand,” he told reporters in New Delhi.

He said though there are a number of cases pending in the courts, they are disposed off in a good time.

“Those who wait for justice want to hear that the scales of justice have finally shown rule of law prevails in the country,” Mr Khurshid said.

A special court in Gujarat today convicted 32 people including BJP MLA and former minister in the Narendra Modi government Maya Kodnani and a Bajrang Dal leader in the Naroda-Patiya riots case in which more than 90 people belonging to the minority community were killed.

It is indeed great at least now Salman Kurshid certified faith in judiciary system. Such certification was not found on Afsal Guru and other judgements
