New Delhi/ Ludhiana: In two separate statements senior lawyer and Aam Aadmi Party leader H. S. Phoolka and Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) raised question on failure of the Indian state to punish the culprits of November 1984 Sikh genocide. The statements came after hanging of Yakub Memon on July 30. In an open letter the DSGMC raised questions on haste shown by Indian judiciary to execute Yakub Memon his alleged role in Mumbai blasts. DSGMC said that the same judiciary has failed to nail culprits of November 1984 carnage in which around ten thousand Sikhs were massacred.

DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK said that in place of sending them behind bars the perpetrators were even provided high security cover and were awarded with influential posts.

“Endless fight, both on roads and in court rooms in past 31 years have brought no reprieve to the ailing Sikh community especially to the victims’ relatives, now it is up to common law abiding citizens of India to decide on the judicial as well as political system that influences the judiciary and raise a voice to change it” said GK.

He said Mumbai terror attack in 1993 had costs 257 precious lives which was a highly deplorable incident in the history of independent India but butchering of more than ten thousand Sikhs in cold blood in 1984 was no less a heinous crime which deserved justice and taken to a logical end.

DSGMC general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa asked “why the killers of Sikhs are roaming free and away from the clutches of law” .

Supreme Court advocate H S Phollka has said: “It is unfortunate that under this government, first CBI quietly files the Closure Report without informing the Media or even the victim and then the CBI refuses to register case against Tytler for influencing the witnesses and Hawala Transaction in spite of overwhelming material available with the CBI,” Phoolka said.

“In the case of Sajjan Kumar, the missing chargesheet prepared on April 8, 1992 for murder of five innocents where Sajjan Kumar is accused, is still not filed in the Court and is pending with the CBI now,” he pointed out.

AAP leader asked questioned Indian PM Narendra Modi and Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal that those killed in Delhi were also citizens of this Country and they also deserved justice. “While in opposition you used to raise this issue to get political benefit and attain power. After forming the Government why have you started shielding them. even more blatantly then by the Congress Government,” he asked.
