Akali leader's Indira comment sparks controversy

New Delhi, Oct 24 (IBNS): Senior Akali Dal leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Thursday sparked a controversy as she said that former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated due to her heavy handed action in 1984.

"What was Mrs Gandhi doing at that time when she was killing other people's sons and husbands? What was she thinking? ... a place of worship which is worshipped by every Sikh...she goes, gives orders to demolish that place and kill people there. What did she think? She would get away with it scot-free?" Kaur said.

She was speaking a day after Congress Vice Preisdent and Indira Gandhi's grandson Rahul Gandhi said she, along with his father Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi were killed due to communal violence.

Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards following her controversial decision to order the army to enter the Golden Temple in Amritsar to flush out militants holed up in the Sikhs' most revered place of worship.

"I wish he (Rahul Gandhi) had gone a little deeper to figure out the reasons as to why his family members met with the fate that they did...You paid (the) price for your deeds," said Harsimrat Kaur.

Harsimrat Kaur is an MP from the Akali Dal, which rules Punjab with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and is the daughter in law of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
