Connecticut to officially mark Sikh Genocide Day

The US State of Connecticut will officially mark ‘Sikh Genocide Day’ on November 30 to commemorate the anti-Sikh pogrom in 1984 which saw around 3000 Sikhs in Delhi killed by Hindu mobs, aided by Indian law enforcement and government officials.

The bill declaring Sikh genocide day was signed in to law by the Governor of Connecticut.

Last year the government of the Canadian province of Ontario also recognised the pogrom as genocide.
