The first thing that I struck me in the photos during the Dera Sacha sauda street violence in Mumbai were young Sikh youths wearing “Never Forget 1984”. The shoe throwing incidence has brought to light the simmering anger bubbling against an issue that has been swept under the carpet-the wounds are still raw.
The politicians are busy backing each other and saying it was an un-journalistic approach. I think its time they focused on booking the guilty than making speeches (I know it’s the election season). 1984 is a huge weight on the conscience of Congress and 25 years is a long time to clear the weight.
If it took a few years to bringIndira Gandhi’s killer’s to justice why should it 25 years to book the guilty of 1984?
