    Bhopal Tragedy: SAD Draws Parallels With '84 Riot


    Ruling Shiromani Akali Dal in Punjab today drew parallels between 1984 anti-sikh riots and the Bhopal gas tragedy saying their victims had not got justice and accused the Congress of shielding the culprits in both the cases.

    "The Congress party not only shielded the main culprits of 1984 Sikh massacre but it also shielded the main culprit of the Bhopal gas tragedy, (UCC Chairman) Warren Anderson," SAD Secretary and party Spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema said here.

    Drawing a parallel between the two tragedies of 1984, Cheema said despite the passage of 25 years the affected families have not been able to get justice in both the cases.

    "The role of the Central government and the CBI is almost same in both the cases. In the Bhopal gas leak incident, the Congress led government helped Anderson flee from the country and in the second case it helped culprits by offering them plum postings in the party as well as the government," he claimed in a statement here.

    "We strongly condemn the explanations being given... That if Anderson was not allowed to flee, he would have been killed by people. There can not be any explanation for the sympathies being shown by Congress towards the person responsible for such a grave tragedy," Cheema said.

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!
