"It is the victory of truth. I am glad that justice was served. Bhagwan ke ghar mein der hai andher nahi (There is a delay in God's home, but not despair)," Kodnani told ANI.
In 2012, a local court found her guilty of the crime and she was sentenced 28 years in jail.
"When I was convicted I thought that this was God's examination, but I always had faith in God that I would come out of this, because I knew I was innocent," said Kodnani, who thrice has been elected from Naroda legislative constituency in 1998, 2002 and 2007.
"I don't know who framed me and with what motive but till this day, I pray to God to give wisdom to those people," she said.
On being asked if she would re-enter the political arena, Kodnani replied, "I am a BJP worker and a party worker is never active or inactive. I am of the belief that through BJP, I am working for my country."
On Friday, Gujarat High Court acquitted 17 accused, including Kodnani, in the case.
In all, officially, 1,044 people had died during the riots.
