Bathinda, Punjab: Religious leaders from Bathinda and surrounding areas take out a protest march against those who were involved in Sikh genocide of 1984, here today. Carrying posters, the protesters sought justice for victims of the carnage wherein Sikhs were reportedly targeted following death of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Speaking on the occasion, Baba Hardeep Singh said even as 29 years have passed since hundreds of Sikhs were brutally murdered by mobs incited by some influential political leaders and others, no action has been initiated against them by the Indian Government.
Instead of taking stringent action against the guilty, they were offered key posts at various places, Baba Hardeep alleged.
Among those who took part in the protest march included Manjit Singh Dhelwan, Baba Kuldeep Singh, Surinder Singh Nathana, Major Singh Bhunder, Jagjit Singh, Jiwan Singh and Bhai Bhagwan Singh.
