Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) took out a protest march in New Delhi on Saturday to seek justice for the families of those killed in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The march, which began from Gurudwara Pratapganj and ended outside Parliament street police station, was led by party president Sukhbir Singh Badal and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.
Talking to the reporters, Kaur called the 1984 riots a blot in the history of India. “Our community has been seeking justice for 34 years now. Thousands of Sikhs were massacred, several women were raped and several people lost their homes. Such atrocity is a blot in the history of India. No one received justice. Why is judiciary not taking suo-motu action?” she was quoted as saying by ANI.
According to ANI, a scuffle between the protesters and the police broke out during the march.
