IN MEMORY OF FRIENDS documents the violence and terror in Punjab, India a land torn apart by religious fundamentalists and a repressive government.
After examining the political turmoil of the late 1970s and rise of Sikh fundamentalism the film concentrates on the legacy of Bhagat Singh, a young socialist hanged by the British in 1931 at age 23. Bhagat Singh has since become a legendary figure. Today the State eulogizes him as a nationalist while Sikh separatists portray him as a Sikh militant. In fact, he was neither. Just prior to his death he wrote a book which he entitled Why I Am An Atheist.
With growing Muslim fundamentalism in Kashmir, Sikh fundamentalism in Punjab and Hindu fundamentalism in not just the Hindi speaking heartland but even in Kerala, and West Bengal, the importance of such a political, ideological, intellectual and human document.
