NEW DELHI—Taking a strong notice of the shocking fact revealed by Jagdish Tytler about the former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, the President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee Manjit Singh GK has asked the Union government of India to withdraw his ‘Bharat Ratan’ award. Notably, Jagdish Tytler had revealed in an interview on January 28 that Rajiv Gandhi had taken stock of the areas targeted by the Hindu mobs during genocide of Sikhs in November, 1984.
Addressing a special press conference at New Delhi, DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK and General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa said that Tytler’s disclosure has made it clear that the then Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was fully aware of the genocide of Sikhs carried out by the Hindu mobs.
They further said that it seems that Jagdish Tytler has indirectly tried to make the Gandhi family understand that he will disclose all the truths if they won’t save him from getting punished by the Court.
Sirsa said that Rajiv Gandhi had given target of killing Sikhs in Delhi to each Delhi based Parliamentarian and later all these perpetrators were awarded with high profile posts.
The DSGMC leaders have sought registration of the case against Jagdish Tytler and Rajiv Gandhi for orchestrating the conspiracy of massacring Sikhs in Delhi.
HS Phoolka Seeks High Level Probe
Former Supreme Court lawyer and Aam Aadmi Party legislator from Dakha constituency, Advocate HS Phoolka has sought high level probe Rajiv Gandhi’s role in orchestrating the 1984 Sikh genocide as well.
Speaking with Sikh24, Advocate HS Phoolka said that he would rake up the matter with Indian government in relation to disclosure made by 1984 Sikh genocide perpetrator Jagdish Tytler. He added that the investigation of this perspective of 1984 Sikh genocide should be probed by the Special Investigation Team constituted by Supreme Court of India. “The purpose of the former PM’s visit to genocide-affected areas should be investigated,” he said.
Jagdish Tytler, a key perpetrator of 1984 Sikh genocide, had made a shocking revelation during an interview with a mainstream news channel on January 28. Tytler had disclosed that the then Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had taken stock of the areas targeted by the Hindu mobs during 1984 Sikh genocide. Tytler had further claimed that he had accompanied the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi who himself drove an Ambassador car without any security through the affected areas of the national capital to take the stock of the situation.
