New Delhi, India (August 11, 2014): Senior advocate and Aam Aadmi Party leader Harwinder Singh Phoolka has questioned that why former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh kept quiet about his house being attacked during the November 1984 Sikh pogrom in the Delhi.
In a release sent to the media, Advocate HS Phoolka said, “Shocking revelation has come out in the interview of Daman Singh, daughter of former PM Manmohan Singh, on a TV channel. She has revealed that during November 1984, the house of Manmohan Singh in Ashok Vihar was attacked. The mob had almost burnt the house when Manmohan Singh’s son-in-law saved it from burning. She has also disclosed that Manmohan Singh’s family knew the people in the mob.”
Daman Singh was apparently giving the interview to coincide with the release of her new book ‘Strictly Personal: Manmohan and Gursharan’.
“What is most shocking that Manmohan Singh, when he was the Prime Minister of India for 10 years, kept silent on this incident,” Phoolka said.
“Though Manmohan Singh’s house was not burnt, but in the same area, the mob, most probably the same mob, killed seven Sikhs, burnt four Gurdwaras, burnt five houses, burnt seven shops, burnt 42 vehicles and also burnt 31 factories,” he informed.
It is notable that the Manmohan Singh throughout his life served the Congress party that was primarily responsible for carrying our genocidal attacks on Sikhs throughout India. Thousands of Sikhs were burnt alive in November 1984 attacks and the perpetrators of Sikh genocide 1984 shared seats with Manmohan Singh in the Congress party.
