Method was wrong, issue is right, says journalist Jarnail SinghApril 7th, 2009 - 3:24 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 7 (IANS) The way was wrong but the issue was right, journalist Jarnail Singh said Tuesday after hurling a shoe at Home Minister P. Chidambaram over his responses to the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) clean chit to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
“I just wanted to ask (Chidambaram) how he can be happy when one whole community is in deep anguish,” Jarnail Singh told IANS over phone from the Tughlak Road police station.
“I just wanted to ask how justice can be done but he was not interested in answering the question.
“I do not think it (what I did) is the right way but the issue (1984 Sikh riots) is right,” added the journalist from the daily Dainik Jagran.
