"The Narod Patiya judgement was one of the most crucial judgements in the history of the Gujarat genocide. And now finally we have the conspirators Maya Kodnani, Babu Bajrangi and Sohan, who have been convicted and 32 others. I think it is a great verdict. We would like many more to be convicted but let us hope that truth and justice will finally prevail in the state of Gujarat," said Rev. Fr. Cedric Prakash, a social activist.
Meanwhile, social activist and advocate Teesta Setalvad, who has actively crusaded for justice in the 2002 riots cases said that she would file a revision appeal in the judgement if they feel certain guilty persons have been let scot-free.
