Chandigarh: In a TV interview Sikh genocide accused and Congress leader Jagdish Tytler said that he has wirtten a letter to the Akal Takht to allow him to offer his clarification on accusations levelled against him with regard of instigating killings of Sikhs during November 1984 Sikh Genocide. He said that he was even ready to apologise to the Akal Takht Sahib, if asked to do so.
“I have written a letter to the Akal Takht. I have faith in Granth Sahib. If Akal takht wants, I am willing to apologize and if found guilty I am even ready to bear punishment,” ABP news quotes Jagdish Tytler on its website.
Notably, a Delhi court had last month directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to write to the High Commission of Canada for information regarding a November 1984 Sikh Genocide, in which Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was given clean chit by it, and complete further investigation in two months.
The court had on December 4, 2015, directed CBI to further probe a November 1984 violence related case against Tytler, saying the statement of arms dealer Abhishek Verma disclosed an active role played by the Congress leader in extending “helping hand” to a witness against him.
The court had also said that as the CBI had filed closure reports in the case several times, it would from now on monitor the probe every two months so that no aspect of the matter is left uninvestigated.
The case pertains to the genocidal violence at Gurudwara Pulbangash in North Delhi where three people were killed on November 1, 1984, a day after the assassination of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The court’s order had come on a protest petition filed by complainant Lakhvinder Kaur, whose husband Badal Singh was killed in the violence, challenging the CBI’s closure report exonerating Jagdish Tytler.
The court had noted that the statement given by Verma to CBI in which he claimed that Jagdish Tytler had sent the son of Surinder Singh Granthi, a key witness against him, to Canada cannot be a “sheer coincidence” and the agency should probe if the facts disclosed by Verma were true.
Three Decades of Impunity and denial of Justice
It is notable that high ups in the Congress party and the Indian administration perpetrated the Sikh genocidal violence against the Sikhs in November 1984, in which thousands of Sikhs were massacred throughout India. Culprits of the genocidal massacres of Nov. 1984 have enjoyed impunity and high political posts during past three decades where as the victims of the massacre were left to perish as the justice was blatantly denied in these cases.
