Gateway to Sikhism






It is absolutely shocking that even those police officials, who were found guilty by the various government-appointed commissions of inquiry, are still prowling free. The Delhi Police’s own Riot Cell also found 72 officials guilty but no action has been taken against any one of them.

The most sordid stories of violence reported by Sikh families from some of the worst-affected colonies, including, Trilokpuri, Mongolpuri, Nangloi, Sultanpuri, Sagarpur and many areas of east Delhi, were the result of the participation of some police officials. The violence in the areas under their control was better-organised and more grotesque. In Trilokpuri, for instance, police officials personally presided over the killings of 700 Sikhs in one days. For three long days, the colony looked like a bazaar of a corpses. No police official even cared to remove the dead bodies. What is more, some police officials alleged to have indulged in the anti-Sikh violence, were given awards for gallantry by the President of India in 1997. If these shocking facts do not prove that the violence was well-planned and organised, nothing else will. will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.
