Unforgettable 1984

The year 2010 is actually the 26th anniversary of two heinous slaughters, named Operation Blue Star (June 1984) and the Sikh Genocide (November1984), of 20th centenary that are committed by the Indian "Secular" & "Democratic" state, against the Sikh minority of the nation with proper planning in order to hit them to the core and with an acute intention to destroy not only the present but the future generations of theirs as much as possible. (Quoted adjectives in above statement are pure representation of fiction which has no relation to any reality if any relation to reality is found it is mere coincidence.)

During the first incident Innocent people including olds, women & children were butchered in sanctum sanctorum of Golden Temple, which is their holiest shrine, by Indian Army claiming it a fight against terror groups. Armed struggle brought into the place which is revered as highly sacred not only by Sikh community but by many others, was otherwise a horrible act of state terror.

It was a first of its kind incident in modern world history where a state audaciously calling itself the world largest democracy used its full fledged armed capability & artillery against its own citizens. The day too chosen for this operation also raises severe doubts about the real intentions behind scenes. It was holy martyrdom day of fifth Sikh Guru due to which lots of innocent devotees collected in the Gurudwara to pay their homage. This shameful act had naked the real temperament of the values of which Indian system is boasting about.

This was the main cause which embedded the concept of a separate state, which was only the brainchild of few fundamentalists & separatists till then, in psyche of most of the Sikh minority of the nation as aftermath as their right of survival with dignity was actually crushed to boots in Indian state, in spite of the fact that they were the most visible group which contributed in freedom struggle of this very nation and resulted in its creation.

Once again the state sponsored & well-planned massacre of Sikh community round the country in November 1984 after Indira Gandhi's killing resulted in widespread support for militancy and strengthened the demand of separation. Again the way in which Indian state responded to these demands with largest human rights violations in the history after the holocaust by Nazis is a slur on its very character which term itself a democratic, socialist & secular nation.

Dog eating the left-over body of a Sikh youth burnt alive in Sikh Genocide. Shameful face of the Indian State. Youth killed in faked encounter. Marks of severe inhuman tortures are clearly visible on his body.

In later years, thousands of Sikh youths were killed in fraudulent encounters by officers in police & forces brutally to gain rewards & promotions from government on killing terrorists. There was a literal hunting of Sikh youths by cops going on during those black days. Thousands of other innocents got killed or handicapped while being picked up & tortured mercilessly in Indian Jails cum hells. Till date there are unexplainable missings of thousands of youths, since those days, which could be the possible victims of atrocities of uniformed constituents of state, about whom no inquiry had been carried out ever to find out the truth.

The biggest disheartening tragedy in all is that even the Indian judicial system failed completely to provide justice in any of these unpleasant incidents. There is not even a single example where a single culprit from political circle to uniformed cadre got punished for these unforgiveable crimes against humanity. This has raised the questions on moral fibre which judicial system is supposed to carry around to some extent in our rotted system.

The Butchers of Delhi are still posing for camera with sarcastic smiles on their face. There is no media baton rally for the cause of get them punished and get the victims justice & dignified compensation which would not only in terms of money. Is it only because victims in these cases were from a specific minority community which is not that much powerful when vote-politics is concerned?

Victims are howling, they are shrieking the names of murderers from last 26 years from one commission to another and one court to another but there is no ear who can even listen to them. And CBI is saying there is no proof.

There is no faith left in Indian judiciary too. Doesn't this case deserve any kind of suo-motto? Opposite to it the judges who have processed these cases (who would otherwise have to be there to provide justice to all plaintiffs) have actually threatened them to change the statements and have denied them their right to even give a statement in court.

Unending March for Justice for more than a quarter of a centenary.

All four pillars of democracy of this country, together, are responsible for this genocide. There is no expectation left for justice till we remain inside this system. We have to convey this message boldly at world forums. What could only bring justice would be an international commission like Nuremberg trial which would include independent jury. We need to raise this demand to United Nations. This is the only hope left for justice.

Sikh community is being advised these days by Indian fraternity of majority community to forget those incidents and move ahead with so called progress in the country. But the biggest question is whether moving on without getting justice is possible? The answer is big NO!

In the end, just a verse of mine:

<<These tears are only demanding justice!!!

(in Punjabi):
ਹਿੰਦੂਸਤਾਨ ਸਮੁੱਚਾ ਕਹਿੰਦਾ ਅੱਜ ਖੁਸ਼ਖਬਰੀ,
ਹਾਲਾਤ ਸਭ ਠੀਕ ਨੇ,
ਤੇ ਸੁੱਖ-ਸਾਂਦ ਹੈ ਸਭੇ,
ਪਰ ਆ ਵੇਖੋ ਕਿੱਥੇ ਹੈ ਖੁਸ਼ਖਬਰੀ?

ਹਿਰਦੇ ਅਜੇ ਵੀ ਨੇ ਰੋਂਦੇ,
ਰੱਤ ਅਜੇ ਵੀ ਅੱਖਾਂ ਚੋਂ ਵੱਗਦਾ,
ਸਾਨੂੰ ਤਾਂ ਅਜੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਾਹ ਵੀ ਵਾਪਿਸ ਨਾ ਜੁੜੇ,
ਕਾਹਦੀ ਖੁਸ਼ਖਬਰੀ?

ਸਾਡੇ ਘਰ ਲੁੱਟੇ,
ਸਾਡੇ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗ ਤੇ ਪੁੱਤ ਸਾੜ੍ਹੇ,
ਸਾਡੀਆਂ ਮਾਵਾਂ ਭੈਣਾਂ ਬੇਪਤ ਹੋਈਆਂ,
ਸਾਡੀ ਜ਼ਿੰਦਗੀ ਨਰਕਾਂ ਦਾ ਸਾਖਿਆਤ ਹੋਈ,
ਕੀ ਇਹ ਹੀ ਹੈ ਖੁਸ਼ਖਬਰੀ?

- Er. Kawaldeep Singh
