Photo: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi addresses a rally in Kalol, 26 km (16 miles) north of the state's main city Ahmedabad in this September 9, 2002 file photo. Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) officials have dodged questions about the political fallout from the recent case where a sitting lawmaker for BJP was sentenced to jail for a 2002 massacre, limiting their comments to praise for Gujarat's criminal justice system. Maya Kodnani, a former Indian state minister, was sentenced to 28 years in jail on August 31, 2012 for murder during one of the country's worst religious riots, when up to 2,500 people, most of them Muslim, were hunted down and hacked, beaten or burnt to death in 2002. Kodnani and 30 others were jailed for their role in the so-called Naroda Patiya massacre, the single bloodiest episode of the three-day riots.
