For decades, the country has been suffering through the hypocrisy of the Congress party. Be it the fulfillment of promises made pre-election or the other biases they as a party present over and over again. One of the most important reminders of it is the fact that the party has absolutely no remorse about the suffering of the sikh community which happened at their behest, back in 1984.
One of the major examples of this criminal bias is played by Captain Amarinder Singh, the front runner for the Congress party in Punjab. Lately, he gave an opportunity to many people to raise eyebrows with him defending Jagdish Tytler of being innocent in the 1984 riots. His greed for power and governance surfaced with him supporting and defending a man who is alleged of being responsible for the massacre of thousands of Sikhs, a fact that was proven back then by the investigating team Nanavati commission in 2000. Later, time and time again with every investigation that took place this fact was reinstated. Yet, Captain Singh has defended Jagdish Tytler to the tee. Publicly and otherwise.
As a true Sikh, he should have joined the masses asking for justice and stripping off Jagdish Tytler and others responsible for the death of Sikhs in the 1984 riots instead he went ahead and supported the accused, all this to satiate his political greed. The picture of Captain Amarinder Singh sharing the stage with Jagdish Tytler in a rally has gained has created controversy as Jagdish Tytler is believed to be responsible for the genocide of the Sikhs in 1984 moreover he went ahead and gave a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler in an interview. The interview led to a massive protest by the people in Delhi and in front of Captain Amarinder Singh’s place.
What Captain fails to understand is the malice he is creating in the hearts of the members of the sikh community against himself. It almost seems like he is in absolute support of the mishaps that the victims and families of the victims, suffered at the hands of the massacre.
Today, it is safe to say that he has lost a huge part of his respect and himself to this controversy and it seems difficult to turn back time and undo the actions and statements he made towards the people of the sikh community, in a way showing support towards the anti-sikh uprising in 1984. Now, a man who cannot be trusted with his own, how can the nation rely upon such a leader or a brutal party such as the congress to take care of the peace and harmony of the country?
Conclusively, it puts a serious doubt in the head and hearts of the people of the country towards their decisions that may be working towards favoring the country. If analyzed, one may realize the threat such members of the nation pose to safeguarding what is so important to it – peace, harmony and secularism. It makes one wonder – When will the negative bias stop? When will our nation learn? When will justice finally prevail? This fortress built on the dead bodies of innocent lives, will certainly fall someday.
