Jammu, May 18 (Scoop News) –Acquittal of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case related to the killing of innocent people and no action on April 1992 FIR lodged against him has invited widespread resentment and anger from the Sikh community across the country. The Congress has been continuously using political pressure during the last 29 years to shield Sajjan Kumar in particular. This was alleged by Jammu & Kashmir BJP Seh-Prabhari Sardar R.P. Singh while addressing a massive gathering of Sikh men and women, including youth and aged at Jammu on Saturday.
R.P.Singh said that Sajjan Kumar was being given the “benefit of doubt”, which is not justified as this Congressman was the prime accused in spreading a wave of terror among the Sikhs during 1984 and publically provoked the people to attack and kill Sikhs wherever they were seen. Our women, youth, old aged parents were given inhuman treatments, tortured and killed on the instigation of Sajjan Kumar. He said soon after the killings of Sikhs, various Commissions have been constituted from time to time and but unfortunately disbanded each time or their recommendations thrown into dustbins as most of them were of the view that Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler and H.K.L Bhagat were guilty of Delhi killings and needed to be punished.
R.P. Singh, while opposing the term riots, said that it was clear case of genocide as Sikhs were butchered on large scale for none of their crime and hence it cannot be called riots by any yardstick. It was a well planned conspiracy to wipe out Sikhs with the full patronage of the government and the local administration, including police. The Congress has been even using CBI and other investigating agencies to influence and get culprits go scot free, he added.
R.P. Singh said that the Constitution of India has laid stress on equality for every citizen before law but the same is not being honoured. Law is being twisted and misused to favour selected people despite of their open involvement in heinous crimes, which is against the spirit of the Constitution. He demanded that the Supreme Court should form Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into and investigate the complete genocide, that of 72 police officers who as per Kapur Mittal Commission were identified to be involved in genocide. He appealed to the masses of Jammu and Kashmir and especially the Sikhs to send signed petition to the President of India with a demand for filing immediate challan against Sajjan Kumar on April 1992 FIR.
This day long programme was also addressed by BJP State General Secretaries Kavinder Gupta and Bali Bhagat, senior leaders S. Varinderjit Singh, Charanjit Singh Khalsa, S. Amreek Singh and Gurdyal Singh Bali.
