Asians in Media (AIM) Magazine | » BBC to raise controversy with film on 1984 Sikh riots

  • tags: no_tag

    • An hour-long documentary presented by Sonia Deol titled ‘1984: A Sikh Story’ will ret-tell the story of the year the Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi sent troops into the holiest and most revered of Sikh shrines, The Golden Temple.

      AIM Magazine has learnt that it is likely to prove controversial with some Sikh groups because of its portrayal of the militant Sikh preacher Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

      It is also likely to draw the ire of the Indian government for its story on how it reacted following the assassination of Indira Gandhi.
