New Delhi: In a written statement issued here on May 09, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) took on the Aam Aadmi Party led Delhi Government and the Bhartiya Janta Party led Central government on the issue of justice and compensation to the victims of November 1984 Sikh genocide.

DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK said that BJP and AAP government should stop politics over compensation and SIT probe related to November 1984 Sikh massacre related cases.

The DSGMC chief said: “If the matter was delayed further, the DSGMC would expose all political parties behind the delay…”.

It is notable that BJP and AAP government in the Centre and the Delhi respectively, exchange allegations over delay in payment of extended compensation to the victims of November 1984 and inaction of SIT formed to probe Nov. 1984 related cases.

Effectiveness of SIT remains under question:

The newly-appointed SIT is 12th such panel formed by the Indian state to “re-investigate” the brutal massacres of the Sikhs carried out in Delhi during first week of November 1984.

Notably, Sikhs were subjected to genocidal violance in India during November 1984. Thousands of Sikhs were massacred in a series of organised massacred through India. Past commissions and inquiry panels have failed to punish the guilty and impart justice to the victims. As the genocide was planned and carried by High-ups in Indian state and the then government of India, the inquiry panels proved merely eyewash. Given the past experience there are little expectations of justice form the SIT as it’s effectiveness remains under question.
