In a press release, Makkar said that during the attack on Darbar Sahib, the Indian army committed grave atrocities against Sikhs. “Thousands of innocent Sikh devotees were killed and Sri Akal Takht Sahib was demolished by Indian troops using field guns and tanks,” he wrote.
“Later, a conspiracy was engineered by the then Congress government to carry out genocide of Sikhs in November 1984. During this genocide, thousands of innocent Sikhs were massacred mercilessly which was a heinous crime against humanity. Through these files, reality will come to to the foreront,”he said.
