‘Profound’ Kanhaiya Kumar Says 2002 Gujarat Riots And 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots Are Different

Published on 29 March, 2016 at 5:41 pm By

Let us begin with this tweet.

That sums up the anger Kanhaiya Kumar’s recent statement has generated.

Now we turn to what the profoundly intellectual new poster boy of the communists (and a politician in the making) has said comparing the 2002 Gujarat Riots with the 1984 anti-Sikh Riots.

So Kanhaiya dismisses the brutal killing of around 3000 Sikhs as merely a “goondaism” during “emergency”. His contention is that in Gujarat, the State itself was involved in the violence.

But playing his own tune as the communists gear up for elections in West Bengal and Kerala, Kanhaiya quickly took the focus on “Islamophobia”. He says that terrorism is being likened to Islam.

He argued, rather ironically, that “it is important for us to understand history before we reach to conclusion on anything”.

He, perhaps, forgot Rajiv Gandhi’s reaction to the anti-Sikh riots that erupted and engulfed Delhi in 1984 in reaction to Indira Gandhi’s assassination by her Sikh bodyguards.

Of course, Kanhaiya is getting the flak on Twitter for his nonsensical comments.

And some scathing ones care coming from those who hailed his return from prison.

 



 

Kanhaiya is a student so he is, perhaps, unaware that politics is a different ball game and that he just conceded an own goal.
