Union Government formed SIT to investigate 1984 Anti-Sikh Genocide

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) has welcomed the decision of the Union government led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for formation of Special Investigate Team (SIT) to investigate all the cases of 1984 anti Sikh genocide in which thousands of innocent Sikhs were killed mercilessly.
“The long battle fought by Akali Dal and its patron and Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal for justice has been accepted by the BJP government and we are thankful to the leadership including PM Narendra Modi, home minister Rajnath Singh and finance minister Arun Jaitley who have played key role in formation of SIT,” said SAD Delhi unit president Manjit Singh GK, reacting to the reports that the government of India would constitute SIT within a week.
Badal has wrote a letter to the BJP led government of India demanding re-investigation of genocide cases and it followed number of meetings between cabinet ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Harsimrat Kaur Badal.  
“Though it never seemed possible under congress party led UPA government, but the consistent efforts of Delhi unit of SAD has gven results and once again it has been proved that SAD fights for cause of Sikhs,” said GK.  
The government of India constituted a committee headed by retired Supreme Court judge Justice GP Mathur in the month of December last year who have recommended setting up of a SIT ten days ago, and Government of India has accepted its recommendations.
Manjit Singh GK hoped that the SIT would bring the entire genocide to a conclusive end by giving justice to the families of the victims and punishing the perpetrators, who happen to be the congress leaders - Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler.  
“The Congress party which was behind the genocide never wanted justice be given to the Sikhs because of reasons best known to everyone. Incase Sajjan and Tytler are convicted, the top leadership of the congress fear that they may also take names of those Congress leaders on whose behest they perpetrated the genocide,” said GK who is also president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
He added that, shockingly as per government record 3,325 Sikhs were killed out of which 2,733 were killed in Delhi alone and in past 31 years 30 persons were convicted. “Out of total 587 FIRS registered 237 were arbitrarily shut by the Delhi police,” informed GK assuring all support to the SIT by setting up a separate wing in DSGMC which would procure evidence and pass it on to the SIT to expedite justice for the genocide victim families.
In the memory of those killed in the genocide, SAD’s Delhi unit has built a memorial in Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib after the Delhi government denied land.
