Book Description

The unanswered questions, the justice delayed, the unbearable memories? The three days of 1984 when over 3000 Sikhs were slaughtered, have indelibly marked the lives of thousands more who continue to exist in a twilight of bitterness and despair.

It was outrage at this state of affairs that led Jarnail Singh, an unassuming, law- abiding journalist, to throw his shoe at home minister P Chidambaram during a press conference in New Delhi. He readily acknowledges that this was not an appropriate means of protest, but asks why, twenty-five years after the massacres, so little has been done to address the issues that are still unresolved and unanswered and a source of anguish to the whole community.

 Who initiated the pogrom and why?

Why did the state apparatus allow it to happen?

Why, despite the many commissions and committees set up to investigate the events, have the perpetrators not been brought to book?
