    AMRITSAR: The two killers of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi were honoured by Akal Takht on Sunday, the highest temporal seat of Sikh religion, on their 24th death anniversary amid presence of a local Akali leader.

    Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh were hanged on January 6, 1989 after a trial for killing Gandhi in 1984.

    Jathedar Gaini Gurbachan Singh presented a 'siropa' (robe of honour) to Tirlok Singh, father of Satwant Singh at a function organized by SGPC.

    The 'Jathedar' also accorded them the status of 'martyrs of faith'.

    SAD Amritsar president and former MP Simranjit Singh Mann and Dal Khalsa (a Sikh radical outfit) leader Kanwar Pal Singh were present at the occasion.

    However, SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar was not present in the ceremony, in which no speech was delivered but Ardas (prayer) was offered in their memory.

    Dal Khalsa leader Kanwar Pal Singh told reporters, "On this day, we pay rich tributes to them as they sacrificed their lives to avenge the sacrilege of Darbar Sahib and Akal Takht."

    He said,"Sikhs feel proud of them and have full respect for their martyrdom."

    Why no outrage on this if a Hindu or Muslim did something like that it would have been hell loose.

    Imagine RSS celebrating Nathuram Godse publicly.

    This happened last year as well. No one wants to take action against these people or other traitors glorifying Rajiv Gandhi's assassins.

    Politics and vote banks > country

    file case against them for war against country, make fast track courts for this also so that wankers from all over the country can be thrown in jail.

    No one commemorated them or called them martyrs - atleast in the assembly. The resolution passed in the TN assembly was just for commuting the death sentence against them to life imprisonment on humanitarian grounds as they have already spent about 20 years in prison and there is not even enough proof of the Perarivalan's involvement in that. Please read on Mr.Karthikeyan's book about the great cover-up initiated on the behest of Congress by former NSA MK Narayanan.



    What are the vows ?

    Until there is prosecution of 1984 killers, this issue will never get closure.

    From that article:
    Correction: Gen Vaidya was assassinated by Khalistanis (the KCF to be specific), but Indira Gandhi was not killed by Khalistanis but by Sikhs in a revenge attack for Op Bluestar. Beant and Satwant Singh were not Khalistanis, and after their death, their families ran for elections and won seats in the Indian Lok Sabha.

    When Beant Singh's son campaigned for the Bathinda constituency, village women would shower him with 'shagan' and blessings.

    [mod edit]




    Golden Temple is seen as a religious place exclusively for Sikhs but its more than just a religious place.It the material form of the principles of equality but not sure how it's these days under SGPC control.

    PS - Damn its the cops :argue::prison:
