Justice for 1984 Sikh Massacre

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Over 33 years have passed since the 1984 Sikh massacre, when at least 3000 Sikh men, women and children were killed, mainly in Delhi, over the course of four days of killing and looting that followed the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Over the last three decades, 10 commissions and committees have looked into the 1984 killings. However only a tiny fraction of those responsible have been brought to justice.

In February 2015, the central government announced the setting up of a Special Investigation team (SIT), comprising two police officers and a retired judge, to look into closed cases related to the killings in 1984.However, this team has failed to show any progress.

It is time for the politics over the 1984 massacre to end. The victims and survivors’ children, and their children’s children, have grown up in the shadows of impunity for crimes against their loved ones. We cannot let another generation go by without seeing justice.
