Remembrance: 1984 State Sponsored Sikh Genocide...

To mark 32 years of the Sikh genocide of November 1984, Amnesty International India has put together a creative short video using shadows to show the story of how the Indian government orchestrated the mass murder, rape, and loot of Sikhs after the assassination of the then PM, Indira Gandhi: 

Below is video news footage of the state sponsored anti-Sikh pogroms from 1984. Journalists were prevented from reporting the genocide by the Police and Hindu mobs. However, despite being manhandled and threatened not to report, below is the limited footage which shows a glimpse of how India massacred its own citizens with the smoke screen of it being frenzied unplanned violence sparked by the death of PM Indira Gandhi, when in reality it was well-planned in advance, organised and systematic.
