    Hello friends!

    I have been wondering about a thing. I've read a little about the massacre in 1984, and was wondering, what was the general view on the assassins of Indira Gandhi? Did sikhs mean it was a right thing to do, or did they mean it was wrong? I'm sure there were many different opinions though..

    Killing of an unarmed person, that too by the persons who were assigned to protect, would never have been approved by Guru Gobind Singh ji or any of our Gurus whatever might have been the provocation or motivation.

    But that in no way justifies the organised massacre of innocent, poor and defenseless Sikhs. I had been to the resettlement colonies which were targetted and I was surprised to find the images of Hindu Gods both on paper and cement
    were also scattered among the ruins. That means the Sikhs who worked mostly as artisans like carpenters, bricklayers, blacksmitths etc, worshipped Hindu gods also and yet they were the people who sufferred the most.

    Ah, I see. Indeed hate never ends with hate.

    It's truly such a sad thing that happened.. Thank you for answering the question.

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!
