We should all aim to be there only a stone throw away from the UK


Amritsar, Punjab (October 18, 2013): Marking the 29th year of 1984 genocidal attacks on Sikh community and denial of justice, a “Genocide Petition” will be filed with the United Nations in Geneva on November 01, 2013. More than million signatures have been collected with the help of Sikh community throughout the world under the campaign “1984 Yes Its Genocide”.

The Sikh Genocide Petition will be handed to Navi Pillay, UN Human Rights Chief by a delegation of Sikh NGO’s All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF), “Movement Against Atrocities & Repression” (MAR), ‘Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ), and Gurudwara representatives from Europe and North America.


1984 Yes It’s Genocide

The Sikh Genocide Petition which has been signed by more than million Sikhs, requests the United Nations to investigate the systematic, intentional and deliberate killing of Sikhs carried out throughout India during the first week of November 1984 and recognize the killings as “Genocide” under UN Convention on Genocide.

According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President, AISSF, the records obtained through RTI show more than 37,000 Sikh families have been compensated by the Government of India for the loss of their family members but the Courts failed to prosecute any leader who were directly involved in the genocidal attacks on the Sikh community during November 1984.

Bir'ay good point that Geneva is not too far away but I think our focus has got to be on getting as many signatures globally as we can ... and therefater our nominated Panj Pyaaray can present the petition on behalf of global Sangat. As rather than thousands of UK Sikhs spending money on plane tickets, hotels etc we can utilise that money direct to uplift our gareeb brothers and sisters in greater need of hep as I don't believe the Swiss media will give too much air time to the petition ... clever use of media with local Sangat in attendance can work just as effectively as millions of signatures is an undeniable voice from the Panth.

It's not about swiss media - its about the UN - they may not give a damn - if THE UN is at present recognised in the world then we need to present this to them.whether they do somehting or not doesnt matter - our duty as sikhs is to do something..funny thing no one still hasnt posted an adderess where the meet up will be-- great input here.!!!

The journey was long and hard.

Veer many Thanks for posting the details - much much appreciated.

 

And you are correct indeed - instead of spending £200 odd going up there it's better to contribute to seva84 or SOPW as we have 1m signauteres which will be handed in anyway.

Most Gurdwaras are saying the cost is 30 pounds in the note above. Most people should be able to afford both attending the demo and giving to organisations. Some Gurdwaras are doing firework displays, money should be diverted to this cause.

Akal Takht, the top temporal seat of the Sikhs, today asked various groups representing the community to file a petition in the United Nations, seeking justice for the victims of 1984 riots.

Akal Takht head priest Gurbachan Singh said he had asked the All India Sikhs Students Federation and other Sikh outfits to file a petition, carrying a million signatures, pertaining to the '84 carnage before the UN.

The perpetrators of the violence should be brought to book at the earliest, he said.

Yes, you are right. The Indian Express is exchanging the term "riots" for Genocide.

The general blind ignorance of the Indian press refuses to let them admit that organised pogroms are an attempt to wholly or partially terminate a particular community (i.e. Genocide) - not mere "riots".

Of course, it's only when Sikhs are massacred.

If it was to be Hindus or Muslims, they would have been the first to be screaming "genocide!!!"
