It revives stark memories of 31 October 1984. We should hang our heads in shame.Sikhs killed brutally. The government and media calling it, "Anti-Sikhriots".Four days of violence in our country, particularly Delhi, by armedgoons belonging to our Gandhi-Congress, killed unarmed Sikh men,women, and children. Looted and set fire their homes, businessesand schools, raped Sikh females and even attacked Gurdwaras.All this violence triggered Just because Indira Gandhi wasassassinated, by her two Sikh body guards.Government reported just 2,700 Sikh deaths but human rightsorganizations and newspapers report the death toll to be over 10,000.After the riots, reports were that 20,000 had fled the city; however the People's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) reported "at least"50,000 were displaced.Human rights organizations truly believe this Sikh massacre wasorganized.Slogans like "Blood for blood" turned into an unruly mob, assaultingSikhs by stopping cars and buses, pulling Sikhs out and burning their turbans.On November 1, Congress party leaders with local supportersdistributing money and weapons. Sajjan Kumar and LalitMaken handing out notes and bottles of liquor to killers.Sajjan Kumar was even seen distributing iron rods to group of peopleand instructing them to attack and kill Sikhs.One Mr. Moti Singh, who had served the Congress party, heardSajjan Kumar’s speech and I quote:“Whoever kills the sons of the snakes, I will reward them.
