On 25th of June 2011, P.Chidambaram spoke on anti-Sikh riots of 1984, he stated "Its time to forgive and build a new India " and this statement has once again brought a nationwide outrage and focus on one of the darkest chapter in the history of Independent India, I don't understand how could he expect this nation to forget the organized genocide of Sikhs in which unarmed and innocent Sikh men,women and even children were brutally murdered by members and workers of Indian National Congress(INC), properties of Sikhs were burnt by the mobs and goons of Indian National Congress(INC),all those events were planned,perpetrated and sponsored by Indian National Congress which was in power in central
during that time,anti-Sikh riots are looked as an attempt of

Government figures says about 2,700 Sikhs died and 20,000 Sikhs fled away, but human rights organizations and newspapers reported the death toll to be somewhere between 10,000-17,000 and according to PUCL 50,000 Sikhs flew away to save their lives.

leader Balwan Khokar held meeting on night of 31stOctober at a ration shop to spread violence against Sikhs, and an another congress supporter Shankar Lal Sharma held meeting at his shop after which he formed mob and instructed people to kill Sikhs, kerosene used in these riots was supplied by group of Congress party leaders who owned filling stations, like Brahmanand Gupta president of A-4 block Congress Party distributed oil in Sultanpuri, similar meetings were held in cooperative colony in Bokaro where

P.K Tripathi President of local Congress party and owner of gas station in Nara More provided kerosene to mob of congress party people and supporters. Since Sikhs were located in unmarked and various locations, Congress Party leaders equipped assailants with voter lists, school registrations and ration card list to pinpoint the locations of Sikh homes,shops,properties and businesses, the night

before massacre began houses of Sikhs were marked by letter "S" so that they could be easily identified, because mobs were illiterate Congress leaders helped them in reading lists and marking houses and those leaders of INC themselves led the mobs to Sikh homes and neighborhoods.
A well known incident in which a Sikh named Amar Singh escaped assailants by help of his Hindu neighbor who sheltered him into his house and declared him dead, but few

men came again looking for his body, and when neighbor said body has been taken away by others, an assailant showed him a list and replied "look Amar Singh's name has not been struck off from list so his body has not been taken away."
These things explains us how organized,systematic and brutal those riots were, and the most Ironic and wry thing is that victims of those riots are deprived of justice even till today, and culprits were allowed to walk free under political pressure.

Yet our Home Minister P.Chidambaram thinks "Its time to forgive and build a new India" I don't think there could be a better example of hypocrisy than this,but bitter fact is that its not something to be forgotten, and especially when justice was denied to the victims.
Though after such incident Indian National Congress should have been declared a terrorist organization and
|1984 anti sikh riots delhi (12)|
should have been banned from participating in any sort of political process,but Its really a pity that a political party whose hands are drenched in the blood of 17,000 innocent people is today ruling this nation.
