March 11th, 2024

Author, radio host and journalist, Gurpreet Singh’s booklet, 1984: When they came for the Sikhs (Radical Desi Publications $15.00) for young adults, converts German theologian, Niemöller’s experiences with the Nazi regime to an Indian context. The booklet delves into the harrowing developments of Operation Bluestar carried out by the Indian Army in the Golden Temple complex in Punjab, the assassination of then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, and the anti-Sikh pogrom that followed. Singh also touches on other pogroms targeted at minority communities in India, with the hope of raising awareness and shaping young minds to have the courage to fight back in the face of adversity.
