Amitabh Bachchan’s Invitation to Leicester Event Causes Outrage in UK Sikh Community.

“Indian film star incited mobs to kill Sikhs”, say survivors of ’84 genocide.

Amitabh Bachchan was the first high profile personality alleged to promote the killing of Sikhs during the November National Genocide of 1984. Seva84 is a charity that works solely for the victims of the Nov...ember 1984 Genocide. Volunteers of Seva84 have recorded first-hand accounts from the survivors of 84 who witnessed Amitabh raising slogans which prompted the looting, raping, killing and torture of 30,000+ Sikhs in November 1984.

The accounts of eye witnesses detail Amitabh making calls for Sikh blood "khoon ka badla khoon (blood for blood)" and other blood thirsty slogans at Teen Murti House, thus making him a key figure in the November 1984 National Genocide, where voting lists amongst other government data was used to identify Sikh homes and businesses which were marked in red before being blazed to the ground. Sikhs of all ages were raped, hacked to pieces and burnt to death. To date, the Indian State has failed to deliver Justice.

Keith Vaz is a British MP and is celebrating 25 years of his membership in parliament. Keith Vaz has invited Amitabh Bachchan to join him in these celebrations. The Sikh community in the UK and abroad have written letters to Keith Vaz to inform of Amitabh Bachchan’s role during the Genocide. As Keith has not yet replied, Seva84 organised a peaceful protest to coincide with the visit of Amitabh Bachchan at the venue he is due to attend (Saturday 16th June 2012 outside the Platinum Suite, Cobden Street, Leicester LE1 2LB). This protest is to express the distress suffered and the collective feelings of the Sikh community regarding Amitabh’s visit, and also to highlight his role in November 1984.

The Leicester Police have been informed of the protest. Furthermore, the protest has backing from the Sikh Sangat (Congregations) in London, midlands area and strong support from Sikhs living in Leister.

Today, 11th June 2012 the police have contacted a Seva84 representative and advised them that Amitabh may not attend on Saturday as he claims he maybe i’ll on that day. The police will have further information regarding Amitabh’s presence at Platinum Suite.

UK Sangat, In particular SANGAT in the MIDLANDS... IT IS VERY POSSIBLE YOUR ATTANDANCE MAY BE NEEDED THIS SATURDAY IN LEICESTER.

We will keep the sangat updated with any progress regarding the protest. Please keep your Saturday night free, as the FIRST person witnessed to promote the killing of Sikhs in November 1984 may be in Leicester. Stay tuned to Seva84 Facebook page for updates.

The surrent situation: Seva84 will be informed of Amitabh's attendance tomorrow, however we have been notified that Amitab's family will be present at the event. On this basis, the protest is going ahead. The protest has been organised by Seva84, and is supported by two other Sikh organisations. If their are any changes we will inform the Panthic organisations that are supporting the protest, and also we will also notify sangat on our facebook page www.facebook.com/seva1984

If there are any other organisations that would like to show support for this protest, please email contact@seva84.com from your organisations adddress, and we will also list these on our facebook page.

We would also reccomend more sangat contact Kieth Vaz to express their concerns of Amitabh attending this event.

Keith Vaz has a bit of dodgy past himself. Google 'The Hinduja Brothers Keith Vaz' and you'll realise why. I'd be rather careful before we start placing trust in him to help Sikhs in this cause. I could be wrong, but he usually moves towards where there is prestige and power, and I'd think he's likely to defend Bachchan than speak against him.

It is Vaz's high profile do, so he needs to take responsibility. But you're right the power and prestige is likely to prevail.

It's the power and contacts that's successfully kept Bachchan's involvement in 84 massacres out of the public eye. Interesting article below from TOI dated Oct 2011, an interview with the inspirational Bibi Jagdish Kaur.

1984 riots: 'Why nobody noticed Amitabh Bachchan spewing venom in India’

Yudhvir Rana, TNN Oct 20, 2011, 05.54PM IST

AMRITSAR: A prime witness in 1984 anti-Sikh riots said that everyone who had been watching Doordarshan saw how superstar Amitabh Bachchan provoked the rioters.

"I wonder why no one in India lodged case against Amitabh Bachchan for provoking killing of Sikhs," said Jagdish Kaur, prime witness in 1984 anti- Sikh riots while talking to TOI on Thursday.

Following Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination by her Sikh bodyguards Satwant Singh and Beant Singh, India erupted in riots against Sikhs in 1984. Reminiscing the sad memories of hate crime against Sikhs she said, "I watched live relay on Doordarshan and saw Amitabh Bachchan raising his arm and shouting the slogan, 'khun ka badla khun sae laengae' (Blood for blood) two times. "

Jagdish Kaur said that everyone who had been watching Doordarshan was witness to how the bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan provoked the anti- Sikh riots. "I am not concerned that a case has been registered against him in Australia but all I want to know why nobody noticed Amitabh's provoking statement in India," Kaur asked. She said that ever since she saw Amitabh spewing venom in full public glare she never watched any of his movies or programmes on TV. "Any mention of him or his work reminds me of his role in the 1984 riots," she said.

Recently a US-based Sikh human rights group lodged a criminal complaint against Bachchan in Australia for instigating and abetting 1984 anti Sikh riots. Australia's 'Criminal Code Act 1995' states that Australian courts can have jurisdiction over cases involving crimes against humanity irrespective of whether the offense was committed in Australia or not.

Jagdish Kaur, then 42, had seen her husband and son being murdered in cold blood by a frenzied mob inside her house in Palam Colony (West Delhi) on November 1st 1984. She also saw her three brothers Narinder Pal Singh, 35, Raghwinder Singh, 28 and Kuldeep Singh ,21, all contractors with MES, burning to death by the mob while they were trying to save themselves.

    • I think the below is a darbaar record reference (from Suri's UUT) to the previously posted account of the mutilated Akali (from Honigberger's work which I reposted below also). It looks like the nihang was severely beaten too:   I introduced to our distinguished guests. Col. Wade and Dr. Murray, an Akalee or Nahung, whose nose, ears and hands had been cut off by order of Runjeet Sing (he had even deserved the gallows ), and whose nose had been so well restored in the mountains that we were all surprised, and confessed it could not have been better done in Europe. As we know, from history, this operation was even in the remotest antiquity, practised by the Hindoos ; and they fermed the nose out of the cuticle of the forehead, which proceeding is now, and always will be the same. In Europe, where cutting off of noses is only in use, in exceptional cases — as when ulceration or other circumstances make it requisite — this operation is usually performed with the cuticle of the arm, and judiciously too, as, according to our custom, the head mostly is uncovered, and a scar on one's forehead, with a new nose on the face, makes rather an ugly appearance ; whilst, in the East, the scar remains hidden beneath the turban.   In time of peace, the Nahungs gave a great deal of trouble to Runjeet Sing. On one occasion, he was even forced to place two pieces of cannon outside the Delhi Gate of Lahore, in the vicinity of Seidgenj, where the robbers congregate, because this band dared to intercept the communication of that city. They shut themselves up in Meea-Meer, five miles distant from Lahore, thence they made their appearance as rebels, but they were defeated, and forced to depart, and from the town also, to Umritsir.   The individual just alluded to as deserving the gallows, had cut off the arm of a sentinel, for having prevented him from entering the tent of the king by a private entrance. The Nahung had a servant with him, who underwent no punishment, because he did not behave in an aggressive manner ; but the offender, by the order of Runjeet Singh, lost his ears, nose, and hands, by the same sabre with which he had so skilfully cut off the arm of the soldier on royal duty. After the sad execution, he ran to drown himself in a well, but was prevented by the people who were accidentally present. When the king was informed of the fact, the culprit was sent to me, and put under my care and medical attendance, with strict orders to watch him, to prevent his committing suicide, and to present him, when cured, to the king. According to his own statement, he was drunk with bhang ( hemp ) when he committed the crime, and his only intention for intruding on the king had been to ask a gapa ( gift ). These robbers do not like to enter military service ; they prefer begging, and living by pillage.
    • Wonder who the 'street racers' are?    https://www.mylondon.news/news/west-london-news/hundreds-sikhs-gather-outside-west-21138103 'Hundreds' of Sikhs gather outside West London temple to confront ‘street racers who threatened them’ The Met Police are 'aware of anti-social behaviour associated with car meets' A video shows 200 members of the Sikh community gathered outside a temple in West London to confront "street racers who threatened them". The community came together outside the Garib Nawaj Ji Gurdwara Sikh temple, on Springfield Road in Hayes, on both Friday and Saturday night (July 23 and 24) after experiencing issues with local street racers causing disturbances to prayers. According to one of the attendees, street racer groups in London threatened to return to the Gurdwara last night (Saturday, July 24) so the community wanted to be there to make sure nothing happened. The Metropolitan Police issued a Section 35 Dispersal Order in response to what they described as “anti-social behaviour” as a result of "car meets in the vicinity." READ MORE:'We planned to have a funeral today': Southall residents devastated after Sikh temple fire The Dispersal Order was been issued from 4.30pm yesterday (July 24) until 7am today (Sunday, July 25). Amarjeet Singh joined approximately 200 other men yesterday evening (July 24) to protect the temple and protest against the presence of the street racers. Police officers were also present. Amarjeet said that the Gurdwara had logged multiple complaints with police and local authorities.   Roughly 30-40 cars reportedly arrived at Springfield Road on Friday despite complaints by the local Sikh community He explained: “On Thursday night (July 22) all of a sudden [street racers] were racing up and down the road. One of the Singhs [a Sikh man who was praying in the Gurdwara] came out and nicely spoke to them. “Five minutes later they came outside and properly made a point of doing handbrakes, turns, everything outside the Gurdwara." The picture below shows members of the community gathered outside the Gurdwara on Friday to protest the car meets. Roughly 100 Sikhs arrived at the Gurdwara on Friday (July 23) (Image: Amarjeet Singh) According to Amarjeet, 40-50 cars came to Springfield Road on Friday July, 23, as an estimated 100 men arrived to protect the Gurdwara and protest their presence. Police officers were also present at the time. He said: “We didn’t cause any trouble, we just want them to stop them. “They get here in the evening and they make a racket.” A spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers are aware of ongoing issues of anti-social behaviour associated with car meets in the vicinity of Springfield Road and are liaising with the local community. “Officers attended the location and dispersed a number of groups."
