The special show on 10th anniversary of Gujarat riots to be telecast on Feb 25 at 8pm February 24, 2012:
In February 2002, India witnessed one of the bloodiest and most painful episodes of communal violence unfold in Gujarat. Over 1,000 Hindus and Muslims were killed and hundreds went missing, even as the state looked on. Ten years on, have the wounds healed? Have the guilty been punished? Has Gujarat moved on? As the 10th anniversary of Gujarat riots approaches, CNN-IBN presents ‘Ground Zero Gujarat’, a special show that takes viewers back to the places and people affected by the 2002 riots. Editor-in-Chief Rajdeep Sardesai, who witnessed and reported the carnage from dangerously close quarters, returns to the state to find out if Gujarat truly has moved on. Rajdeep undertakes a personal journey to meet those affected directly by the violence and the new generation of Gujaratis. He shares their pain, their hopes, their dreams, and tries to find out if and how reconciliation can be achieved. To know more tune into CNN-IBN on 25th February, Saturday @ 8:00 PM with a repeat telecast on 26th February, Sunday @12:00 PM & 9:30 PM.
