The fervor among the people is immeasurable. Every sensible citizen is signing the petition to re-open the false fully closed cases of the '84 riot victims.
Today the high priest of Akal Takht (highest seat and court of Sikhs) Jathedar Gurbachan Singh visited the exhibition and said that the peaceful survival of the humanity is possible only if the culprits of such mass massacres are apprehended and punished to create an example for others so that no one dares to sabotage the rights of other citizens.
The activists of the exhibition were quite successful in getting signs of hundreds of citizens, which will be a democratic instrument to reopen the unresolved cases.
