Ajitgarh/ Mohali (November 05, 2013): According to information sent by All India Sikh Studetns Federation (Peer Mohammad) to the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) – a demonstration was jointly held by various Sikh organizations to mark the 29th anniversary of Sikh Genocide 1984 on November 03, 2013 at Ajitgarh (Mohali).
Sikh sangat and the representatives of various Sikh organizations gathered at Gurdwara Amb Shaib (Mohali) and performed Ardas in the memory of those killed in various massacres that were carried throughout India in November 1984.
After the Ardas the Sikh sangat marched towards the main traffic lights of Phase 7 & 8 and staged a dharna on the road. The protesters criticized various Indian governments formed during last three decades for denying the justice to the victims. As per information a Punjabi vernacular Daily Pehredar played prime role in organizing this demonstration.
It is notable that thousands of Sikhs were brutally killed in various systematic and organized genocidal massacres during November 1984.
These massacres were perpetrated by high-ups in Indian administration, Indian politicians and top brass of the congress party.
An investigation conducted by People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) and People’s Union of Democratic Rights (PUDR) in November 1984 had revealed that “the attacks on members of the Sikh Community in Delhi and its suburbs during the period, far from being a spontaneous expression of “madness” and of popular “grief and anger” at Mrs. Gandhi’s assasination as made out to be by the authorities, were the outcome of a well organised plan marked by acts of both deliberate commissions and omissions by important politicians of the Congress (I) at the top and by authorities in the administration” (for more read “Who are guilty?” – a report by PUCL and PUDR).
The perpetrators of the genocide have been shielded by the Indian state for past 29 years and the victim-survivors of the genocide were ignored to parish with the passage of time with their apparently endless wait for justice.
Recently the Sikh groups, including Sikhs for Justice (a US based human rights group) and AISSF, along with the victim-survivors of the Sikh genocide have approached the UN Human Rights Council to investigate the November 1984 massacres and proceed against the culprits as all domestic proceedings were exhausted during last three decades but the justice remains denied to the victims.
