    Jalandhar (November 03, 2011): More than two hundred students of Layllpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar donated their eyes in the memory of thousands of Sikhs massacred during November 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs. In a brief samagam held at Gurudwara Sahib of Layllpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar students gathered to remember the innocent victims of this heinous crime. Students pledged to continue to observe follow the path of “welfare of all”, as shown by the Sikh Gurus.

    This eye donation camp was organized by college unit of Sikh Students Federation with the help of NSS unit and Sri Guru Harkrishan Eye Hospital (Sohana). SSF unit president Preet Singh said that 203 students donated their eyes in the memory of Sikh Genocide 1984.

    SSF National President Parmjeet Singh Gazi said that genocidal violence of 1984 against Sikhs has attained the status of “cultural trauma” and coming generations would continue to feel its’ pain.

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!
