Pav Singh

As a member of the Magazine and Books Industrial Council of the National Union of Journalists he has been instrumental in campaigning on the issues surrounding the 1984 massacres (1984 anti-Sikh riots).

In 2004, he spent a year in India researching the full extent of the pogroms and the subsequent cover-up. He met with survivors and witnessed the political fall-out and protests following the release of the flawed Nanavati Report into the killings.

His research led to the pivotal and authoritative report 1984 Sikhs’ Kristallnacht, which was first released by the 1984 Genocide Coalition in 2004 and substantially expanded in 2009 (sponsored by Lord Indarjit Singh of the Network of Sikh Organisations).
During April 2014, a motion was passed at the annual conference of the NUJ calling for greater transparency from the British government on the issue of 1984.[1] In the following June 2014, he organised a delegation of the NUJ to Downing Street to present a letter to the British Prime Minister, David Cameron calling on the British government to set up a public inquiry and full disclosure of UK government papers relating to the Amritsar massacre of 1984.[2]

In his role as a community advocate at the Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide, London, he contributed to the exhibition ‘The 1984 Anti-Sikh Pogroms Remembered’ in November 2014 with Delhi-based photographer Gauri Gill.[3]

1984 India's Guilty Secret
In November 2017, his book 1984 India's Guilty Secret was published by Kashi House in the UK and Rupa Publications in India. The book was a culmination of more than a decade's research into the November 1984 Sikh Genocide (anti-Sikh riots) and the subsequent cover-up.[4]
