Following several political tensions and an attack on the holiest of Sikh shrines, the Golden Temple in June 1984, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s Sikh bodyguards assassinated her on October 31,1984. This became the pretext for a targeted massacre of Sikhs in India’s capital city, New Delhi, and other parts of north and central India that lasted at least until November 4th, killing thousands of community members.
Sociologist, Shruti Devgan (Bowdoin College), and journalist and writer, Amandeep Sandhu, will guide the audience through two main perspectives on this genocide: one from India and the other from the Sikh diaspora.
This event supports intellectual wellness by exposing the audience to multiple sides of an issue and providing exposure to new ideas, beliefs, or people.
Sponsored by the Global Citizenship Project, the International Education Center, and the Sociology Department.
