Moments after CBI submitted its report giving clear chit to former Union Minister Jagdish Tytler, the surfers of logged on to express their opinion.

In response to a question asked by, "Is there politics behind the clean chit given to Tytler", the surfers have responded candidly.

Surfer Himanshu Gaur from Aligarh blame the Congress party for its double standards. "This is what is called secular? Varun Gandhi is communal and Jagdish Tytler is secular," he asks.

Preet Kamal Singh from Australia says, "It is another insult to the several wounds the 1984 Sikh riots have left on the people's hearts. India cannot prosper unless people like Tytler (even after killing so many) still have the guts to ask for Sikh votes."

Surfers feel that giving clean chit smells off dirty communal politics on the part of the government. They are not comfortable that the perpetrators of 1984 riots should be left unpunished.

Surfer Sidharth Iyer from Delhi blames the CBI. "That is why CBI is known as Congress Bureau of Investigation," he said. Ranita Ray from Anantpur even demands for the dismantling of CBI, as it is nothing but "a tool in the hands of the Congress."

Some surfers even warn the Congress of unpleasant consequences in Lok Sabha elections for lending a deaf ear to the riot victims.

Anjum Samel from Nasik opines, "The elections are round the corner and stakes are very high. Can Congress afford having its image sullied at this stage? This is another CBI sham like in the Quottrochhi case."

Surfer Satnam Singh from Amritsar blames the government for hurting the feelings of the Sikhs. "By purposefully allowing such mass murderers go free, the government is inviting the injured and insulted to rise up and take there own revenge. It is time that all right thinking citizens, condemn it vociferously to make a positive start," he says.

Undoubtedly, the reaction to the CBI report on Tytler has been prompt and full of sharp criticism.
