Chandigarh, PUNJAB (April 12, 2011): In a communique jointly issued by Navkiran Singh (Cheif Legal Council, INDIA), Karnail Singh Primohammad (President, AISSF) and Babu Singh Dukhiya (President, 1984 Victims Justice and Welfare Society) it is maintained that “a mass Grave of Sikhs killed in November 1984 has been discovered after 26 years at Gurudwara in 22 Block, Nagloi, No.1, Delhi where more than sixty five (65) Sikhs were burnt alive November 1984. The site where Sikhs were burnt alive killed is located in front of Gurudwara Udaseen Taran Ashram”.
“AISSF, 1984 VJWS and SFJ have also discovered burnt ruins and debris of several other Gurudwaras in Nangloi, Sultanpuri, Kalyanpuri and Mangolpuri areas of Delhi. A list of names of newly discovered ruins of Gurudwaras and list of victims from Gurudwara Udaseen has also been released” reads the communique.
In November 1984 Gurudwara Udaseen was run by Sikhs who migrated from Peshawar Pakistan. Today, there is a cemented square in front of the Gurudwara where sixty five (65) Sikhs along with Granthi of the Gurudwara and Sri Guru Granth Sahib, were burnt alive.
According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President AISSF, the victims at Gurudwara Udaseen were targetted only because they were Sikhs. The newly discovered ruins of Gurudwaras across Delhi confirm that twenty six years after November 1984, Sikhs have still not received any justice. DSGMC has miserably failed to protect the Gurudwaras and has failed to prosecute the attackers during past 26 years. DSGMC have been repeatedly urged to file criminal complaint against Kamal Nath for leading the attack on Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib but influential Sarna brothers who head DSGMC have been constantly shielding Kamal Nath and Congress (I).
According to Advocate Navkiran Singh, Chief Legal Counsel to SFJ, the startling discovery of mass grave of 65 Sikhs along with ruins of burnt Gurudwaras in Delhi and ruins of Hondh-Chillar, Pataudi and Gurgaon is an irrefutable evidence that in November 1984, Sikhs were targeted and attacked in a systematic and identical manner throughout India. Despite of hundreds of Gurudwaras having been burnt in Delhi alone, no one has been investigated, charged or prosecuted for attacking the place of worship.The scope and findings of inquiry commissions and committees set up by the Indian Government are grossly lacking and insufficient.
Babu Singh Dukhia, President “National 1984 Victims Justice & Welfare Society” whose relentless efforts have brought forth the discovery of mass grave at Udaseen, urged witnesses and survivors to come forward if they know of any hidden location where Sikhs were killed during November 1984.
