    New Delhi, March 26 : A website seeking punishment for perpetrators of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and designed by a Sikh organisation is to be launched in the capital Friday.

    The website has been designed by the All India Sikh Conference (Babbar). It carries details about the riots on a day to day basis, the people involved in the carnage and how victims are still waiting for justice.

    "The motive of launching the website is to seek peoples' mandate and create pressure on the government to punish those involved in the carnage," said All India Sikh Conference chief Gurcharan Singh Babbar.

    "The government has failed to provide justice to the victims of the 1984 carnage, and the people involved in the massacre have gone scot free," said Babbar.

    The 1984 anti-Sikh riots broke out after the assassination of then prime minister Indira Gandhi by two of her Sikh bodyguards in a reaction to the army entering the Golden Temple to flush out Sikh militants hiding inside. In Delhi alone, over 3,000 people, mostly Sikhs, were killed in the riots.

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!
