A Partial Acknowledgement of The Truth?

"History would never forgive police officials who were at the helm of the affairs and the government of the day for their unprecedented slothful and quiescent role."
"But for the contrived action and sluggish response of the police and the government, scores of priceless lives could have been saved."
- Additional Sessions Judge S. S. Rathi, while awarding life-imprisonment to three men who appear to have taken advantage of the police's inactivity during the 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots to rob their Sikh neighbours and set the Sikhs' house on fire to make it look like another case of rioting

scores of priceless lives could have been saved.”

“priceless lives? At that time, we Sikhs and our lives were considered worthless, not priceless.

I suppose it’s good that these miscreants were found guilty and given tough sentences, still what sense of justice is there when the perpetraters are rich and powerful and running around the streets of India with big smirks on their faces.
