    Sikhs to remember Golden Temple deaths on June 5

    Washington—Sikhs from Eastern Coast of the United States will gather in Washington, D.C. on June 5 to commemorate the Indian government’s brutal military attack on the Golden Temple and 37 other Sikh Gurdwaras throughout East Punjab, in June 1984.

    The Sikh Khalistan Council claimed that during the Indian army operation more than 20,000 Sikhs were killed and thousands arrested.

    According to Dr. Gurmit Singh Aulakh, President of the Council of Khalistan, the government pro tempore of Khalistan, which leads the struggle for Khalistan’s independence the “Golden Temple attack was a brutal chapter in India’s repression of the Sikhs”

    According to a statement issue by Council of Khalistan this week “Sikhs cannot forgive or forget this atrocity against the seat of our religion by the Indian government, said Dr. Aulakh “This brutal attack clarified that there is no place in India for Sikhs,” he said.

    On October 7, 1987, the Sikh Nation declared its independence from India, naming its new country Khalistan.

    The report claimed that the “Indian government has murdered over 250,000 Sikhs since 1984, more than 300,000 Christians in Nagaland, over 90,000 Muslims in Kashmir, tens of thousands of Christians and Muslims throughout the country, and tens of thousands of Tamils, Assamese, Manipuris, , and others.” The Indian Supreme Court called the Indian government’s murders of Sikhs “worse than a genocide.”

    Moew recently, the Indian government has been promoting the idea of Sikh militancy. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to watch out for Sikh separatists whom he claimed were trying to ignite militancy. Canada denied visas to officials of the Indian Intelligence Bureau and other violent agencies.

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!
