Could some one also please advise of the exact address and time sangatan are meeting in Geneve to hand this petition to the UN.

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.

I agree to however this is historic any which way attendance or not it matters anyhow. 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.!!!

Fri 1st Nov , United Nations Building, Geneva, Switzerland 11.00- 16.00 Swiss time.

For over 1 year the Sikh Nation has been working tirelessly in an effort to obtain 1 000 000 signatures from across the world to petition the United Nations to investigate the 1984 Sikh Genocide. The journey was long and hard. But as of October 21st, 2013 All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) weighed all the signed petitions and in combination with the signatures obtained around the globe, we have now surpassed over 1 000 000!

BUT THE STRUGGLE STILL CONTINUES

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.

    • Umm, that's totally irrational, bro. There are plenty of prakash-dara Singhs in Punjab (less than we'd like, but still plenty). No one cares that you are sabat soorat. It isn't 1986. You can walk around in chola, kurta-pajama, or jeans. Whatever. If you want the look @dallysingh101 is referring to, just go into a cheap clothing shop (not a Western-style mall) and buy some shirts for 250 rupees or a track suit for 2000 rupees. You'll get the cheap stuff made in some sweatshop in Bombay.
    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
