Documentary on Sikh Massacre in 1984 AD in India


An authoritative account, using eyewitness testimony, of the massacres of India’s minority Sikh community during the course of 1984 and the repression that took place in the state of Punjab in the decade afterwards. This film was first shown by the 1984 Truth & Justice campaign to MPs in the UK Houses of Parliament to raise awareness on the 20th anniversary of the pogroms.

Film footage shown courtesy of the ‘Sikhs’, BBC (12 April 1999); Ken Rees, ITN (1-4 Nov 1984); ‘Rajiv – the alternative’, BBC (Dec 1984); Eastern Eye, C4 (Jan 1985); ‘The Riddle of Midnight’, Salman Rushdie (1987); ‘Disappearances in Punjab, Ram Narayan Kumar (1995).

Note: Kristallnacht — ‘Night of the broken glass’ ( November 9, 1938 )
After a German embassy official was assassinated in Paris by a Jew in revenge for the mass expulsion of Jews to Poland, attacks on the Jews soon followed. Though it was portrayed as a spontaneous outburst of popular outrage, these pogroms were organized and coordinated by Hitler’s Nazis, who beat and murdered Jews throughout Germany and Austria. Synagogues and Jewish businesses were particular targets of attacks. The police and fire brigade looked on. Tens of thousands were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. This marked the beginning of the Holocaust, the mass killing of Europe’s Jews.

  1. punjabis should now burn indra gandhi memmorial museum in delhi

    • India is a country, not a private property of anyone. Neither Indira Gandhi or anyone else. It is true that a barrierless torture and torment was imposed to Punjabis. They had suffered a long chain of merciless crimes done to them by some mobs led by some criminal-minded group of political leaders.

      But the way out, is not by demolishing or setting IMMM to the fire. It will re-ignite the hate politics again. Everybody should think that they belong to a nation, a religion above all religions that is Humanity. If not, the days to suffer will come again.
      I’m sorry if I have written something wrong, its completely my personal opinion.

  2. I extremely feel the sorrow and cries to the unexpected disaster suffered by one of our esteemed Indian Sikhs during the unfortunate 84’s. Hence this had not been attacked upon Sikhs as well as for all Indians. But India’s most trusted CBI Agency if gives clean chit to any of the accused than we must trust on it. My personal opinion has been changed about Mr. Jagdish Titler after hearing him in a TV news channel program named “AAP KI ADALAT” . It is a dirty politics which is being used by the enemy of humanity. We must oppose it with a unite and loud voice. May God Justify Mr. Jagdish Titler in Jesus name Amen.
