I would also like every one to recall the carnage handed to the sikhs
post Indira Gandhi Riots.

Mobs lead by Congress leaders committed murder, loot, arson and rape,
across India for over a week, however the worst effected area was the
capital of India Delhi. The official figures of those who died are
over 4000 and 60,000 were rendered homeless in Delhi alone, these
figures to not incorporate those “missing”.

No One except Sikhs were killed, and if  the govt. machinery
especially the police had made any attempts to control the onslaught,
should have killed some Congress goons as well, but that was not the

Delhi has one of the largest army cantonment and yet it took 3 days to
deploy them when almost the mission had almost been completed.

“Many people complained that, in some cases, the police were not
merely hanging back, but giving active support.”  4 The Times

Jagdish Tytler, Kamal Nath, Sajjan Kumar were indicted by independent
commissions of inquiry, including the People's Union for Civil
Liberties, the People's Union for Democratic Rights and the Citizens'
Justice Committee and yet all have been suitably rewarded for the role
they played.

“Only a person who is totally committed to the nation can make an

‘Murderers of Indira Gandhi’. Hence, 1984 is justified, implies Arjun

Mr Surinder Singh, who was the then Head Granthi of Gurdwara
Pulbangash near Azad Market, said the mob, led by Congress M.P.
Jagdish Tytler, attacked the shrine a day after the assassination of
then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

“He incited the mob to burn the gurdwara and kill Sikhs,” the witness
said in an affidavit filed before the commission probing the riots
that followed the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

That is congress leaders for us today.
