Indian politician caught on camera admitting to role in Sikh genocide

Indian National Congress politician Jagdish Tytler has confessed to playing a key role in the 1984 Sikh genocide, in a newly-released video, which can be seen below.

The footage shows Tytler confessing to murder, The former Indian member of Parliament bragged about “killing” 100 Sikhs, when being secretly filmed in 2011. The video was released this week by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) who claimed to have received the videos from an ‘unidentified youth’.
Tytler has long been accused of instigating the massacre of Sikhs in 1984 following the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was killed by her own Sikh bodyguards in retaliation for the Indian government’s attack on holy Sikh site Harmandir Sahib (often referred to as the Golden Temple) in Amritsar, Punjab.
At the time, Tytler was minister of state for overseas Indian affairs, a position he resigned from after he was accused of inciting and leading murderous mobs against the Sikh community in Delhi.
BJP national secretary and Delhi president of Shiromani Akali Dal R.P. Singh has now lodged a First Information Report (FIR) at Parliament Street police station against Tytler.  He demanded immediate arrest of Tytler, and warned that the DSGMC would launch protests otherwise. He added that he would hand over the clippings to CBI and demand action from prime minister Narendra Modi.
According to state media, Tytler has denied the confession, claiming that it was not him in the video and that his voice had been distorted.

He has so far escaped any punishment for his role in the genocide, even though witnesses reported seeing him lead rampaging mobs towards the homes of Sikhs and an official government inquiry even claimed he ‘probably’ had a role in organising attacks.
