Patiala: A seminar dedicated to the memory of those killed during Sikh genocide of November 1984 was organised by students of Punjabi University, Patiala. The topic of the seminar was “on the “Sikh Genocide 1984”.
Senior journalist and author of the book “Gujarat Files” Rana Ayub, Sikh historian Bhai Ajmer Singh, and Editor of Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) Parmjeet Singh were the main speakers during this event.
Calling herself as a daughter of 1993 Anti Muslim violence, investigative journalist Rana Ayub said she has personally experienced the pain and horror of the violence and that a Sikh family had sheltered her along with her sister during that fateful period.
Addressing a jam-packed hall Rana Ayyub further stressed that rise of Narinder Modi and Amit Shah, directly responsible for genocidal massacre of 2002, at the helms of political power in this country reflects the dead consciousness of our society.
She said that listening to lectures on Sikh Genocide 1984 or the Gujarat 2002 could not be of any avail unless we look into our own consciousness to find the truth and stand up for it.
She also spoke about her book Gujarat Files and informed that the Punjabi version of this book has already been published and it will be launched soon.
