Today marks the end of a painful era for Sikhs across the world as a draconian architect of inhumane torture, former director general of the Punjab police, KPS Gill, breathed his last today.
The man dubbed as “Supercop” by the Indian media for being a ruthless murderer of the innocent family members of active Sikh freedom fighters dies due to natural causes earlier this Friday.
The decade following the Indian states attack on the religious center of the Sikhs, Harmandar Sahib (the Golden Temple), in Amritsar in 1984, was a turbulent one in Punjab as innocent Sikhs took to arms against the state for meting countless brutal injustices against it’s own people. To help stem this movement, figureheads such as Gill were unshackled to unleash havoc on Punjab’s people – which they did.
The death of Gill will be celebrated gleefully across the world, with sound knowledge that the mechanisms of the afterlife will not be anywhere near as absent minded and complicit as the Indian state.
India will celebrate the passing of this man as a hero instead of the heartless butcher that he was at the helm of Punjab’s state terrorism on it’s own people.
New Delhi/ Chandigarh: Former Punjab Police chief, who was regarded as butcher of Punjab for inflicting gross human rights abuses on Sikhs during his tenure as Punjab police chief died at Delhi today. He was 82 years old.
As per Indian Express KPS Gill died on Friday (May 26, 2017) at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) in Delhi, after suffering a cardiac arrest.
He was also suffering from end stage kidney failure and significant ischemic heart disease and had been recovering from peritonitis.
It is notable that KPS Gill had unleashed region of state-terror on civilian Sikh population after assuming office as Punjab DGP. The period of KPS Gill’s tenure as Punjab police chief witnessed mass level atrocities on the civilian Sikh population when thousands were subjected to enforced disappearances, killed in fake/ staged encounters and were cremated as “unclaimed dead bodies”.
