It is notable that thousands of innocent Sikhs were massacred in Delhi and elsewhere in India during first week of November 1984. The massacres that took place during initial days of November 1984 were part of a coordinated and wider plan of Sikh genocide. Many Indian politicians belonging to Congress (I) party face allegations of orchestrating the genocide. These culprits are being protected and patronages by the Indian state for last three decades.
