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.
