SKY NEWS - calls to recognise sikh killings as genocide

Recommended Posts

This is brilliant news, good on the Aussies for showing some guts!

Am I right in thinking that due to some constraint in UK law, that the Sikh genocide cannot be raised in the house of commons becuase it was prior to 1991 (changed from 2001 by Jack Straw)??

Quite cunning I must say!

They've reported about an Australian MP calling for recognition of 1984 killings as genocide. But they haven't forgotten to put up the photo of PM Manmohan Singh visiting Indira's grave!

The first thing that could come to someone's mind is, " Well, he's is a Sikh. He doesn't seem to have a problem paying respect towards Indira Gandhi!" :huh2:

always with the conspiracy theories - oh no the media must be against sikhs!

fact is the piece is written objectively, manmohan singh attending is part of that story as is the delhi sikhs protesting.

if you want to know just ask @skynewssingh on twitter who wrote the article. because he put it up there we've all taken notice and so has the bbc and other channels.

This got quite a lot of coverage even in the Indain press

1984 Sikh "Genocide" Petition Tabled in Australian Parliament

An Australian lawmaker has tabled in Parliament a petition seeking that the horrific violence that took place in November 1984 in India following the assassination of prime minister Indira Gandhi be recognised as genocide against the Sikh community.

At least 3,000 Sikhs were killed in three days in the Indian capital New Delhi following the killing of Indira Gandhi on Oct 31, 1984 by her Sikh bodyguards.

Warren Enstch, the chief opposition whip for the Liberal Party, Thursday tabled the 1984 Sikh "genocide" petition before the House of Representatives. A number of Sikhs were present in the parliament galleries when Enstch read the petition, said a press release from the Supreme Council of Australia.

443.jpg"It is important to note that today, Nov 1, is 28 years to the day that these attacks took place," he said.

"And as long as they continue to be referred to as 'anti-Sikh riots' there can be no closure for the Sikh community. Discussions around mass violence and genocide will always be controversial but the continued denial of such historical injustices can only encourage modern day crimes against humanity."

The petition urged the Australian parliament to recognize that an organised campaign of horrific violence took place against the Sikh community in November 1984, and that these killings were "genocide" as per the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

The petition argues that the "the intentional and deliberate nature of the attacks on Sikh lives, properties and places of worship during November 1984 makes them crime of `genocide'..."

Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), an international human rights group that is lobbying to get the violence of November 1984 against Sikhs recognized as "genocide", supported the tabling of the petition in the parliament of Australia.

According to Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a human rights lawyer & SFJ legal advisor, SFJ will now provide documents, witnesses and evidence related to November 1984 Sikh genocide to the Australian ministry of foreign affairs.

Ok. I agree to news article being objective...but even so, there was no need to put up Manmohan Singh's picture that has absolutely no link to the article.

He could've put up the Australian MP's photo instead.

I'm not on about any conspiracy or whatever. All I'm talking about is the targeted audience. The Sikhs reading this will have different views but the non-sikhs, who don't have much idea about '84 or the puppet PM, will most probably think what I've mentioned in the post above.

    • Stand for righteousness yes. Only thing we can do is neutrally speak out against injustices against innocents when we see them not be partisan in our approach. In practical sense different times different era's different approach is needed. Sikhs need to learn to adapt or get vanished for their petty virtue signalling. End of the day try wielding a kirpan against an evil doer and you'll be arrested and in jail faster than you can put it away. The Sikhs of era we are inspired by were sovereign sikhs in their own area of control and laws and rules. If we try to be wonna be modern day sant saphi's mowing down every rioter or criminal we come across we'll just get rolled over by the state and its own huge numbers of modern weaponised fully armed personnel. The so called khalsa warriors of today are not able to match even a tiny percentage of the calibre of purataan Sikhs of era's past nor modern day warriors of 1980s/90s. We learn't the hard way how real world politics works and which communities had our back, which we found out were none.  
    • It goes under a lot of names. Imperialism is a sickness of those who were always sick. Don't let it make you ill. 
    • That was written by some who was against the Nazis and it was a warning for people not to be complacent to the threat of a totalitarian, fascist ideology.... which in the modern world goes by the name of the religion of 'peace' 
    • Bloodshed happen Again.  Did not certain jathas hide during blue star?  Each with their own list of wrongs or reasons? Weren't the great Shaheeds, Sants, and Sadars of the past known for their rightousness period? These types of actions can not be allowed ever against any or they will consume us all. 
    • this is what I am thinking they, the BJP have already attacked and removed sikhs from their paid for and cultivated land and businesses of decades if not century whereever they have got in , Rajasthan , Gujarat etc  the amount of robbery and looting is in the ten of CRodes but these guys somehow staying quiet they will be spared of a similar fate to Jains and Buddhists , its just a matter of time . If people don't fight this law change on a whim , they will revoke sikhs citixenship too ...in fact the RSS mouthpieces have hinted similar bloodshed for us is waiting .
