This is my first hand account of what happened with us :
Our family was a victim of 84 riots in which our house was first looted and then burned down, I was 13 years old and we all narrowly escaped death.We were given a check of Rs 5000 as compensation, before we could deposit it, it was taken back from us with the reason that only fatality -death of an person will be compensated and not any property loss/damage.
In 1984 we were living in Government quarters, my father was in MT 2 -Ministry of Defense,Our house in sector 4, RK puram was attacked on November 01, 1984 at about 3 or 4 pm thanks to our Hindu neighbors who saved us and gave shelter in their home, risking their own lives. But the rioters continued their pursue to kill us and next day started house to house searching.
Fearing for their own safety, people who had saved us requested us to look for alternative safe house. Later,My father called up his C.O who came with Army personnel and rescued us.
Everybody knows who are guilty for the 84 riots but no political was interested to punish the guilty , how can congress punish Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan kumar and Late HKL Baghat,???
Same went for BJP, why should they punish their RSS members for mass murders ?? The article in newspapers(interview) of their then RSS supremo justified the state directed killings.
The 84 riots and denial of justice reminds of Kurds in the middle east , who are killed by many countries( Turkey, Iraq and more), its a saying that "a Kurd has no friend ". more
