One of the key witnesses in a 1984 Sikh massacre case stated that he’d been watching Doordarshan and saw how Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan provoked people to kill Sikhs.
“I wonder why no one in India lodged case against Amitabh Bachchan for provoking killing of Sikhs,” said Jagdish Kaur told the Times of India.
Following India’s Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi’s assassination by her two Sikh bodyguards, Bhai Satwant Singh Ji and Bhai Beant Singh Ji on 31st October 1984, India erupted in genocide against Sikhs. Bollywood’s own, Amitabh Bachchan, provoked this genocide on India’s television network, Doordarshan, in 1984.
A prime witness of the 1984 anti-Sikh genocide, Jagdish Kaur, states, “I watched live relay on Doordarshan and saw Amitabh Bachchan raising his arm and shouting the slogan, ‘khun ka badla khun sae laengae’ (Blood for blood) two times.”
Jagdish Kaur said that everyone who had been watching Doordarshan was witness to how the ‘Bollywood superstar’, Amitabh Bachchan, provoked the anti-Sikh genocide.
A concerned Sikh questioned Amitabh Bachchan on his role in 1984 from asking a question on the official Facebook account of the Bollywood actor. The actor who rarely replies to such questions actually gave a response to Singh’s question regarding Bachchan saying ‘Khoon Ka Badla Khoon’ on Doordarshan Television.
