The 1984 anti-Sikhs riots was a riot directed against Sikhs in India, by anti-Sikh mobs, in response to the assassination of Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards, there were more than 3000 deaths.

SGPC President Harjinder Singh Dhami in a statement issued from his office said that the wounds of November 1984 Sikh Genocide by the then Congress government are still tender and it is highly unfortunate that even after passage of 38 years, the community has not received justice.

Harjinder Singh Dhami said that in November 1984, at the behest of the then government, tyranny was unleashed on Sikhs for several days, which shook every sensitive human being in the world to the core.

“November 1984 Sikh Genocide was a cruel act against humanity at the behest of government and Congress can never be acquitted from this crime. The culprits of Sikh Genocide should have been punished, on the contrary even today Congress is protecting them. Rewarding culprits of Sikh Genocide by giving them big positions in Congress is done to hurt Sikh sentiments”, said Harjinder Singh Dhami.

He said that the Sikhs who sacrificed more than 80% for the freedom of the country are being cheated repeatedly and as soon as the month of November comes, the wounds of the Sikh community begin to ooz, but the government has not punished the culprits till date.
