The Supreme Court lawyer, H S Phoolka who has been fighting the 1984 Sikh carnage cases in the court still needs 100 more years to bring justice to the riot victim families as he did not bring the case to any conclusion yet.
Phoolka did his Law degree from Panjab University, Chandigarh in 1981 and moved to Delhi. When the opportunist Phoolka witnessed the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, he had found his way to gain fame.
He had shifted to Chandigarh after the carnage but immediately went back to Delhi for fighting the cases against the accused Congress leaders. He had started his fight in 1984 and still he is fighting but he failed to bring justice to the victims despite after 31 years.
After the brutal killings of Sikhs, the victims approached the courts and as per the information, 442 rioters were convicted by the courts and 49 were awarded the life imprisonment. Even in 2013, five people were convicted by Karkardooma district court.
When Phoolka have ample of evidences and proofs against the culprit Jagdish Tytler then why he failed to bring the case to the end? Phoolka deliberately linger on the cases and now it’s been 31 years and the victims are still waiting for the culprits to be punished.
The former Petroleum Secretary, Avtar Singh Gill in an interview to Caravan magazine had revealed that a close friend of Arun Nehru told Gill that the lists of Sikh voters had been prepared and Nehru was controlling the PM office at that time.
Despite the big statement of Gill, Phoolka did not fight the case with heart and spirit because he is only befooling the Sikhs to gain the publicity.
Phoolka joined “Aam Admi Party” as he has seen a new platform to get himself a public figure. He fought the Lok Sabha elections from Ludhiana but did not make it. When he saw the ire of Sikhs who started blaming him to do something for them and punish the culprit Tytler, Phoolka played a stunt and announced that he resigned from AAP.
The resignation of Phoolka was merely a stunt only as he told his supporters to create a Facebook page mentioned, “ HS Phoolka as Punjab’s CM.”Phoolka has followed the footsteps of his boss Arvind Kejriwal who has mastered the art of taking u turns.
A Sikh scholar on anonymity basis told that Phoolka has been fighting the case since the beginning of his career. He got the fame and publicity because of this case only. In the country’s history, there are so many cases which came to the conclusion with in a time frame but this case is still going on. Phoolka has done nothing for the Sikhs but he used the sentiments of the victims to get the glory.
