fighters and was among the four pilots being sent to France by the Indian air force for advance training His flight from Banglaore to Paris went via New Delhi During the stopover at the Delhi airport Harinder went out to meet his father also an air force officer He never reported back The other three pilots had to leave without him During three fateful days in November 1984 50 soldiers were killed in the most brutal manner by a frenzied mob Some of them were beheaded some set alight by burning tyres hung around their necks Harinder his father SK Singh and his two uncles were killed in this carnage Only recently our Parliament erupted over the beheading of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan army But it has not had the time in 30 years to even pass a resolution condemning the killings of its soldiers by its own citizens The ministry of defence has not bothered to so much as come out with a list of soldiers killed in November 1984 No one raised a protest against the killing of these soldiers No trials no convictions no justice Today it is difficult for anyone even for me to imagine that for 48 hours one citizen died every minute on the roads of Delhi From the noon of November 1 to the noon of November 3 that is 2880 minutes over 3000 Sikhs were killed The official figure in Delhi alone is 2733 The figures compiled by human rights groups are 4000 in Delhi and 7000 across the country For 3000 murders only 30 people have been convicted till now According to the Nanavati Commission report 587 FIRs were registered out of which 241 were closed by the police as untraced and thus never sent to court for trial After Nanavati’s report only four of the 241 cases were reopened and reinvestigated In one of these cases decided in April 2013 five persons have been convicted The other 237 cases still lie closed The Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi had asked for the formation of an SIT to reopen and further investigate these cases The matter was still pending with the lieutenant governor who was to take the final decision when Kejriwal resigned The UPA government stalled this SIT Now it has been five months of the NDA government in which the Akali Dal is an ally and the SIT is still stalled Only one case remains in the trial court The others have mostly led to acquittal except for 13 murder cases and only 30 people have been convicted When there are acquittals no one stops to ask then who killed 3000 people in just two days Two cases are still under investigation by the CBI One registered at the Nangloi police station is into the murder of four Sikhs on November 1 In this case an FIR was registered after three years in 1987 and an investigation carried on for another five years On April 8 1992 a chargesheet was finalised and signed by the SHO as well as the ACP Sajjan Kumar a former Congress MP is the main accused in this case In the normal course of things the chargesheet should have been filed in court in three to four days In this case it has not been filed after 22 years The other case pertains to three murders at Gurdwara Pulbangash Jagdish Tytler is accused in this case The CBI filed a closure report but before that the DIG of the CBI recommended that a chargesheet be filed The IG who is joint director also agreed But the then director of the CBI overruled their decision and directed that a closure report be filed The court rejected this closure report and directed a further probe The case remains with the CBI pending investigation The main endeavour has always been to shield the guilty politicians and unfortunately it has been successful Apart from those accused in the above cases no other leader from that time — some are believed to have been actively and physically involved in the riots — has been prosecuted or even questioned Police complicity has gone completely unpunished Every state agency in November 1984 for two whole days worked towards facilitating the riots But there have been no questions let alone answers The 1984 carnage and the subsequent inaction send out a message: the word of a political leader is final and above the law Over the last 30 years the same principle has held Even today people believe that when under the orders of a political leader they have the licence to commit any crime with impunity No civilised society can allow this to continue A loud and clear message needs to be sent out that nobody is above the rule of law It is the law that is supreme not the political leader Unless a fear of the law is instilled in the minds of the people and the mob no one is safe Mob frenzy may not restrict itself to targeting minorities There are already numerous examples of Dalits being targeted and this could go on endlessly with different castes and classes becoming objects of mob fury For a safe future it is absolutely necessary that a massacre like 1984 does not go unpunished The recent declaration awarding compensation to victims is welcome However it is not a substitute for punishment Under Indian law both punishment and compensation are a must Gujarat 2002 was an example of history being repeated Innocent lives were lost but thanks to the intervention of the Supreme Court 129 have already been given life imprisonment 10 awarded the death sentence and one minister sentenced to 28 years in prison Unfortunately as far as 1984 is concerned even the judiciary has failed The steps taken by the Supreme Court to ensure fair trials and investigation on Gujarat 2002 are missing in the case of 1984 Of course much is yet to be done for Gujarat 2002 too But for Delhi 1984 ensuring that the same measures for fair trial and investigation are taken would be a good start Seven thousand murders across the country only 30 punished guilty leaders rewarded with high positions guilty police officers given repeat promotions and the victims forgotten That is the truth of November 1984 No one talks about those 50 soldiers who were beheaded or burnt with tyres around their necks I am reminded of Narendra Modi’s statements referring to Kashmir during his election campaigns that the country would demand an accounting for the head for each and every

App More Top NewsWritten by RAMENDRA SINGH | Updated: August 8 2016 7:08 pm Former BSP general secretary Swami Prasad Maurya Top News Former BSP general secretary Swami Prasad Maurya’s entry into the BJP on Monday comes as an apparent boost to the saffron group’s attempts to reach out to backward castes which form nearly half of Uttar Pradesh’s population and are capable of swaying the result of coming assembly elections More specifically Maurya who enjoys support in his own Maurya-Kushwaha caste also known by Shakya and Saini surnames in west UP will not only solidify the party’s hold on the caste group but also strengthen the BJP’s presence among the non-Yadav backward castes whom BJP is trying hard to take into its fold Kushwaha-Maurya is one of the largest backward caste in UP the other being Yadav Kurmi and Lodh As Yadavs are seen as dedicated Samajwadi Party supporters the BJP is also trying to woo Kurmis the latest apparent attempt is induction of Apna Dal MP Anupriya Patel as a union minister of state The party already has a large number of leaders including former chief minister Kalyan Singh and Union Minister Uma Bharti from Lodh caste The arrival of Maurya is not just likely to fetch the BJP support from his caste group especially in the party’s weak zones like SP strongholds of Etawah Etah Mainpuri Kannauj but will also pave way for wooing sections disgruntled with Mayawati Maurya who practices Buddhism and has been a leader of BSP for two decades could also be used by the BJP to change its perception among sections of Dalits and backward castes Though the BJP clearly stands to gain with Maurya’s arrival the party will also have to deal with some frictions that are likely to arise with the entry of former BSP leader Maurya’s entry may lead to a power-tussle between him and Phulpur MP Keshav Prasad Maurya whom BJP appointed earlier this year as state president to reach out to the same Kushwaha-Maurya caste group Maurya who first became an MLA in 1996 has publicly said that Keshav who first became an MLA in 2012 is little-known in his community However Keshav welcomed Maurya at his joining in Delhi on Monday When Maurya left the BSP on June 22 accusing Mayawati of “auctioning” party’s tickets for elections Mayawati hit back saying he had left the party because she had denied tickets to his son and daughter She accused him of promoting nepotism Watch Video: What’s making news Maurya’s son Utkrisht who had unsuccessfully contested 2012 assembly election from Unchahar seat of Rae Bareli and daughter Sanghmitra who unsuccessfully contested 2012 assembly election from Aliganj seat of Etah district and 2014 Lok Sabha election against SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav from Mainpuri are both claimants for tickets It goes without saying that Maurya would want both of them to be accommodated by BJP which could leave the BJP facing allegations of promoting nepotism and giving importance to “outsiders” at the cost of its own cadres Previously Maurya has conducted himself as a crusader against the Hindu caste system and Brahminism A few of his supporters have said that they will adjust to the BJP’s culture because their ideological home BSP has lost its path However his supporters take comfort in the appointment of Narendra Modi from a backward caste as Prime Minister saying it shows the changing culture of the BJP which was earlier seen as an upper caste party Also the BJP should not have problems in accommodating Maurya’s supporters who have their bases in areas where BJP has been struggling in last few assembly elections Overall Maurya comes as an asset to the BJP which appears to be struggling to woo Dalits about 21 per cent of state’s population most of whom are openly leaning towards Mayawati And to put up a good fight in the elections BJP needs to strongly pursue the support of Hindu castes among Other Backward Classes about 45 per cent of the state’s population Kushwaha-Maurya caste which had largely supported BSP until a few years back appears inclined towards BJP an apparent reason for Maurya to make his decision The caste group largely supported the BJP during Ram temple movement and also in last Lok Sabha polls Most of Maurya’s supporters whose opinions he had sought in writing at his July 1 workers’ meet in Lucknow had urged him to join the BJP Others had asked him to launch his own party a suggestion he has preferred to ignore largely because he also needs an established party to survive in politics and not end up in oblivion like most of the former BSP leaders For all
