Here comes the biggest win for the victims of the 1984 Sikh riots where around 10,000 Sikhs were killed by the supporters belonging to a political party. After nearly four decades of fighting for the justice, the sikh brothers and sisters are able to cast a smile of relief.
The High Court said “1984 riots were a crime against humanity. Need to assure the countless victims that truth will prevail” while hearing pleas filed by the the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) challenging a trial’s court judgment where Sajjan Kumar was acquitted and five others were convicted in the case.
The judges also said that “In the summer of 1947, during partition, several people were massacred. 37 years later Delhi was the witness of a similar tragedy. The accused enjoyed political patronage and escaped trial”.
This has been a huge blow to the Congress party as this has come just moments before the swearing in ceremony of Kamal Nath as Madhya Pradesh chief minister. Now the demand has increased to sack Kamal Nath.
Never forget that Rajiv Gandhi had defended this anti-Sikh violence by saying “When a big tree falls, earth shakes”.
Welcoming this historic decision that came after 34 years of struggle Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal said that “Out of the three, one is in prison, and the other is being sworn in as Chief Minister”.
Yes, she was speaking about Kamal Nath, who is declared as the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh by the Congress party. She also added “Congress is promoting these people whom Rajiv Gandhi used as his right-hand men. Kamal Nath was there. He ordered the killing and the Congress is still promoting them and backing them up. I couldn’t be more thankful to the courts. But PM Modi is the only PM who had the guts to go against the Gandhi family”.
Rahul Gandhi in an interview to Arnab Goswami in 2014 has confessed that the Congress men were involved in the 1984 Sikh riots. Here’s the Arnab Goswami and Rahul Gandhi:
Arnab Goswami: Would you apologise for the 1984 riots? Were Congressmen involved?
Rahul Gandhi: Some Congressmen probably were involved
Arnab Goswami: You admit some Congressmen probably were involved?
Rahul Gandhi: Some Congressmen have been punished for it
