Akal Takht endorses Sikh Genocide Petition for United Nations
On January 6, 2011 an International Campaign will be launched to collect signatures on “1503 PETITION” which will be filed before the UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION (UNHRC) in November 2011 by “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ) and “All India Sikhs Students Federation” (AISSF) demanding an independent inquiry into the systematic and organized killing of Sikhs in 1984 throughout India.
Under The “1503 PETITION” the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights and the Commission on Human Rights examine complaints which appear to show consistent patterns of gross and reliably attested human rights violations as in the case of Sikhs in India.
On December 15, 2010, Giani Gurbachan Singh, the Head of Highest temporal seat of Sikhs Sri Akal Takhat Sahib issued a directive to the Sikh community to support and sign the “1503 PETITION” so that an independent investigation be held into the systematic and organized killing of Sikhs throughout India.
