    Jalandhar, Nov 1 (PTI) Radical Sikh group Dal Khalsa today said it would hold a state bandh on Tuesday to express solidarity with the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots, which followed the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi.
    "We have written letters to railway and transport authorities to suspend services on November three," Khalsa spokesman Kanwarpal Singh told reporters here.

    Khalsa would hold protest marches at Jalandhar, Amritsar, Ludhiana and Fatehgarh Sahib. Bandh was called to pay tributes to Sikhs killed in riots and protest delay in delivery of justice in such cases, he said.

    In riots that followed the assassination of Indira Gandhi by her Sikh body guards on October 31, 1984 many people of the community were killed in many parts of the country.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
