1984 Riots: Aissf Calls For Punjab Bandh On November 1

Recommended Posts

Amritsar: The All-India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) led by Karnail Singh Peer Mohammed has given a call for Punjab bandh for November 1 to to mark the 30th anniversary of Operation Bluestar -

Addressing a press conference, AISSF President Peer Mohammed, accompanied by Jagdish Kaur, a key witness in the Sajjan Kumar case, said the bandh call was meant to protest the “injustice” to the anti-Sikh riot victims and the “patronage” given to Congress leaders allegedly involved in the carnage. He added it has been three decades since Sikhs were massacred in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination, but justice continued to elude those who bore the brunt of the riots.

Jagdish Kaur and her son Gurdeep Singh Goldy said they were depending on the support of the people of Punjab for justice as they were disappointed with the Indian justice system.

They urged the people to support their bandh call. AISSF President stated that despite recommendations of Nanavati Commission, . successive Congress governments at the Centre have provided shelter to Congress leaders involved in riots, they alleged. Since BJP-SAD is now in power at Delhi “We expect the BJP-led NDA government to take the cases against Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar to their logical end,” they said.
