Victims of the riots included any innocent person that “committed the crime” of being Sikh.
People were forced out of their homes and their families killed. Men/boys were murdered and women/girls were raped and also murdered.
Even after the government promised now 25 years later, many survivors have still not been compensated for their loses.
"The government had given us an assurance that adequate compensation would be given to riot victims and action would be taken against the culprits. But no corrective steps have been taken as yet," said Bhai Manmohan Singh "Our family members who died in the riots cannot come back, but at least our property should be returned to us.”
These survivors are still trying to get justice for the genocide. They state, "If the government does not take corrective action we will carry out demonstrations against the government.”
Although the Indian government completely denied the massacre, everyone knew what really took place. The other countries had the same reaction as the Holocaust, they had evidence but did nothing about it.
