1984 Riots Cases: Badal-Led Delegation Meets Pranab

Recommended Posts

Nirpreet Kaur, a 1984 riots victim, ended her fast after she was informed by Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal that President Pranab Mukherjee had assured a delegation of political parties that he would look into the demands of the riot victims.

Nirpreet Kaur had been on a fast at Jantar Mantar since the past six days to protest against the acquittal of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar by a District Sessions Court in a 1984 riots case. Badal and Sukhbir went to Jantar Mantar to meet Nirpreet Kaur after meeting the President, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde.

Addressing a gathering, they said representatives of all political parties, except the Congress, had accompanied them to meet the President on the issue. Badal asked the DSGMC and the SGPC to approach the Supreme Court, seeking that the Centre be directed to form a special investigating team (SIT) to look into the 1984 riots.

The delegation was led by Parkash Singh Badal. The latter briefed the President about the details of the case and the “injustice” done to the Sikh community.

The delegation sought the President’s intervention in directing the Central Government to order a Supreme Court-monitored special investigating team (SIT) to probe the attack on Sikhs after the assassination of Indira Gandhi. It pleaded that the investigation should be completed within a given time.

The delegation said that the CBI should challenge the verdict on Sajjan Kumar’s acquittal in the High Court and file a charge sheet in another case registered with the Nangloi police station. It said that investigations against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler be expedited.

Leaders of the BJP and the SAD along with those of the Shiv Sena, Samajwadi Party, TDP, JMM, INLD, BJD and the JD-U handed over a memorandum to the President.

Update from SFJ -

Will the Hypocrisy Ever End

As the theatrical performances by both Badals continue to disgust most Sikhs, one wonders how they (Badals) perceive reality. In the picture below we see baby Badal asking the current government of India (Congress I) to fulfill its legal obligation to the people it currently governing and finally give justice to all the victims of the 1984 Sikh Genocide.

Yet baby Badal and old Badal have NEVER lived up to their legal and moral obligation to the people of Punjab, how on god’s green earth are they asking others to do so? Badals government has protected all Indian Police Officers accused of human rights violations against Sikhs. They have promoted most to top positions including Saini as DGP and Surjit Grewal as head of Parkash’s person security.

It’s sad how foolish both Badals believe the Sikh Panth to be. But tody no one is really buying their lies and sooner or later both will have to answer for their crimes!!!

    • Living in the West most of us are aware of humorous sexual or biological colloquial terms. There's a difference between a surname -- that largely cannot be changed -- and intentionally burdening a child with a dodgy forename from a long list of non-dodgy possibilities. I wouldn't use my child to make a haughty cultural argument in order to highlight gorah ignorance. The kid has to go out into the world and live with his/her name every day of their life. Doing it out of ignorance is one thing; purposefully bestowing a horrible name where someone will be victim to guffaws (despite knowing the implications of the name) their entire life is the height of cruelty.
    • Singh of the Heartfelt yep scans great...how about lovepreet  (double ironic) Manpreet is bad as we are meant to love Akal Purukh not our Man , I could understand Livleen  not Lovleen     people don't know Punjabi/gurmukhi or sanskrit  meanings and just make a mess creating milgoba hindu sounding names
    • remember akal security was doing the same and worse in immigration centres near mexican border to Singh , this included shaving and cutting the Singh's kesh. And 3HO should be respected as a sikh organisation ...haha I don't think so
    • OK, I figured out what Har5hit means. The base shows up in Gurbani as ਹਰਖ and ਹਰਸ (harkh and haras). It means happiness, delight.   ਦਰਸਨ ਪਰਸਨ ਸਰਸਨ ਹਰਸਨ ਰੰਗਿ ਰੰਗੀ ਕਰਤਾਰੀ ਰੇ ॥੧॥ On beholding and touching it, I am sweetened and delighted. It is imbued with creator's love. p404 ਹਰਖੁ ਸੋਗੁ ਸਭੁ ਮੋਹੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥ harakh sog sabh moh gavaia .p122  Happiness sadness and attachment were all lost.   ਹਰਸ਼ਿਤ would be the adjectival form and simply means happy or delighted. Like ਅਨੰਦ -> ਅਨੰਦਿਤ.   If you want to name your child "Happy" you can use an alternative form such as Harkhit, which would mean the same thing because sh can become kh in Punjabi. (Often not so for Hindi/Sanskrit). There doesn't seem to be a reason for a Punjabi to use a Hindi form, unless they are self-haters.
    • Ok, yeah, because a lot of them are same-ish, people lose appreciation for that, I can see that. Gur-Preet is fine because we're supposed have love of Guru ji. A lot of other prefix/suffix names are undecipherable because parents just threw together syllables without a thought to the meaning. There are a lot of non-suffix names available if parents would bother to read Gurbani and other Sikh literature. Or even ordinary Punjabi words, like ਰੰਗੀਨ (Rungeen, colorful).
