    Defamation suit filed against Canadian MP
    November 28, 2010

    PNS | Chandigarh

    A defamation suit against Canada’s Vancouver Member of Parliament (MP) Ujjal Dosanjh was filed in a Chandigarh court on Saturday for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Sikh community by calling the second and third generation of Sikhs settled in Canada pro-Khalistani during his visit to India this year recently.

    The petition was filed by Avtar Singh, a Canada-born Sikh youth, at present living in Mohali. He alleged that during a Press conference in September this year at Sector 28 Himachal Bhawan, Dosanjh had cautioned the Canadian Government about the second and third generations of Sikh immigrants alleging that Sikh youth in Canada were propagating Khalistan.

    The petitioner has requested the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Jasbir Singh Sidhu to summon Dosanjh under Section 500/501 of the Indian Penal Code. The court has fixed the next hearing for December 10 when the complainant would present evidences in support of his complaint.

    The complainant has also stated that Vancouver MP during his press briefing in September had also said that the fundamentalists propagating the cause of Khalistan in Canada were doing damage rather than any good to the cause of Sikhs.

    The 25-year old Avtar Singh, who is in India these days to meet his family and friends, has alleged that Dosanjh defamed the image of Sikh youth, living in Canada and abroad by giving the statement.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
