Hoshiarpur: Dal Khalsa today appreciated and thanked members of the assembly of California state of the US for expressing solidarity with aggrieved Sikh community and holding Indian government officials responsible for failing to prevent the killings of Sikhs in Nov 1984 and urging New Delhi to admit its culpability.
Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh and general secretary Dr Manjinder Singh said the Assembly Concurrent Resolution 34 (ACR 34) has indicted the then Indian government officials for organizing, participating and failing to prevent the killings and . He said for the first time any government or nation has acknowledged that Indian government was responsible for slaughtering of its own citizen across the country in Nov 1984. They said this observation of US lawmakers was vindication of what Sikhs have been saying all these years. They attached significance to this move of the California state saying it could pave the way for other countries to follow the path.
They said the international community has slowly but steadily had started realizing the pain and concerns of the Sikhs, who remained victims of ‘politics of genocide’ played by pro-Indian political
parties and supported by country’s establishment.
Terming both the Congress and the BJP two sides of the same coin, he said both these main players of Indian polity have innocent blood of minorities on their hands. “Congress rakes up Gujarat 2002 during elections to woo Muslims votes. On the other hand, the BJP pays lip service to 1984 genocide victims to show Congress in poor light”. But the fact of the matter is both exploits hurt sentiments for political gains.
