The 1984 Sikh Massacre in India


It has been proven that India is not a safe country for any race, cast, religion and a  person of any creed. We all witnessed the carnage of Sikh Dehli, Demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992 and Hindu extremists attacked on the Christians of Kandhamal District in August, 2008.

India which calls itself a secular country is sticking to spread Hinduism in each and over corner of the entire India.

The moment when the 3rd Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi was killed in assassination at 9:20 a.m. on 31 October 1984, at Safdarjung Road, New Delhi, the riot took place since protectors Beant Singh and Satwant Singh were her real assassinators. 

The Sikh Massacre in 1984 created a very horrifying situation in Delhi. Many mobs from Hindu extremists got to the Sikh properties and some of the extremists tried to have sexual assault on woman as mentioned in the movie ‘31st October’.

The official Indian government reported that in this big carnage more than 2,800 people were killed across India including 2,100 people the capital of India. However, the independent sources estimated that across the largest democratic country about  8,000 were put to death and in the Indian capital 3,000 tasted the taste of death.

It can be assumed that Beant Singh could not tolerate the ‘Operation Blue Star’ purposed to do away with the militant religious leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in Amritsar, Punjab the Sikh leader in Anandpur Sahib Resolution had many purposes and some of them were: Revival of the religious institution of Dasvandh among the Sikhs, spread of Sikhism, its ethical values and code of conduct to combat atheism.

Indira Gandhi’s order to wipe out the some Sikh orthodox from the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) created religious enthusiasm in the heart of two Sikh followers to assassinate her. 

A single powerful individual's assassination caused thousands of assassinations.
