 ABOUT THE TITLE
‘I apologize not only to the Sikh community but to the whole Indian nation because what took place in 1984 is the negation of the concept of nationhood enshrined in our Constitution . . . we as a united nation can ensure that such a ghastly event is never repeated in India’s future.’ —Prime Minister Manmohan Singh speaking in the Indian Parliament August 2005
On 31 October 1984 Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was brutally assassinated by two of her bodyguards. They were Sikhs. Twenty-four hours later the capital of India was up in flames. Sikh men women and children were hunted; men and boys were ruthlessly massacred; their workplaces burnt houses razed to the ground and gurudwaras plundered. The carnage continued for three days and at the close of the third day the death toll was close to 4000.
Twenty-three years and nine commissions later the victims of ’84 still await justice for their dead for the State to do more than just apologize for what is one of the most heinous massacres in Indian history.
Weaving together ethnicity religion class nationalism religious fundamentalism and political expediencies the author explores how a numerically small ethno-religious group of people who are disproportionately visible in everyday Indian life became the focus of communal ire. She also illustrates the strength and courage with which the ‘Chaurasiye’ have moved forward rebuilding their lives against all odds.
A poignant examination of events that took place more than two decades ago Betrayed by the State is relevant now more than ever in the atmosphere of heightened sectarian politics that prevails in India today.
