All through the period from October 31 to
November 4, 1984, large mobs largely formed by hooligans loyal
to the ruling Indian Congress Party from many part of the
country attacked Sikh community. The mobsters swarmed into Sikh
neighborhoods, arbitrarily killing any Sikh men they could find.
these events should not be called riots, but be described as one
sided pogrom or a crime against humanity. This was a
black spot on India history.
