New Delhi: It is 25 years since the shocking assasination of Indira Gandhi but the tragedy compounded by the anti-Sikh riots still reverberates across the nation. But what also cannot be forgotten is the reported plight of thousands of Hindu families who suffered the dark days of militancy in Punjab that lasted over a decade. According to estimates, most people who died or were displaced by the Punjab militancy were Hindus and some families were destroyed forever.
