    SSF welcomed move to get recognition for Sikh Genocide



    Patiala (June 13, 2010): The Sikh Students Federation, a Punjab based organization of Sikh Students, has welcomed the move undertaken by Sikhs in Canada to get recognition for Sikh massacre of November 1984 as ‘Genocide’ under International Criminal Law, to be specific under Article 2 of U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. S. Parmjeet Singh Gazi, National President of SSF, said in a statement said that Sikhs were targeted, subjected to violence and were brutally killed, and Sikh women were subjected to collective rapes and torture in initial days of November 1984, at Delhi and various others places throughout India, in a systematic and organized way. “Since last 25 years, Sikhs were waiting for justice but Indian state has failed to impart justice.

    Judicial system seems to have collapsed, when we talk about 1984 Sikh massacre.” said Parmjeet Singh Gazi, who also claimed that massacre of November 1984 was fit case to be recognized as Genocide and Crime against humanity.

    SSF has praised Canadian MPs Andrew Kaniya, Sukh Dhaliwal and human rights organization Sikhs for Justice for their standing for justice. Kaniya and Dhaliwal introduced the petition seeking recognition for Sikh Genocide in Parliament of Ottawa on 10 June and Sikhs for Justice is an advocacy group fighting legally to secure recognition and justice for victims of November 1984 carnage.

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!
