BBC: Amritsar ‘genocide’ commemoration: Sikhs march through London
Members of the Sikh community have marched through central London in protest over the storming of India’s Golden Temple 30 years ago.
Thousands attended the event, as protesters demanded that the assault of June 1984 be recognised as a genocide.
Crowds from all over the country assembled in Hyde Park in support.
Sikhs say thousands were murdered when Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi sent the army into Sikhism’s holiest shrine to flush out militants.
Recently, British Sikhs have also been angered by the revelation in previously secret papers published by the UK government in January, which suggest that an SAS officer was recruited to help plan the operation.
