Members of the Sikh community staged angry protests in front of Punjab Assembly in Lahore against the mass killing of Sikhs in India in 1984 following the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards.

The protesters presented a memorandum in Punjab Assembly urging the Pakistani government to raise voice against the atrocity in the United Nations, reported Geo TV.

The demonstrators, including women, gathered in hundreds outside the assembly building and staged a protest camp. They paid tribute to those massacred in the 1984 riots and raised slogans against Indian government.
