Hundreds of Sikhs under the banner of Sikh Federation, UK protested the visit of Indian Minister Kamal Nath to the United Kingdom and chanted slogans on the periphery of Regent's Park outside the London Business School, UK.

The demonstration was not at all subsided even though Kamal Nath didn't attend the conference. Jagtar Singh, an advisor to Sikh Federation, UK stated that "They decided to go ahead anyway because the police would not confirm that Kamal Nath would not attend."

During the demonstration against Kamal Nath, Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean of London Business School spoke to the Sikhs and took the postcards presenting the clear evidence against Kamal Nath's role in November 1984 Sikh Genocide to distribute in the conference.

In the coming weeks, Senior Advocate HS Phoolka will be taking the first case against Indian Minister Kamal Nath through the Delhi Courts.

Kamal Nath led the mob that attacked Gurudwara Rakab Ganj in Delhi during November 1984 Sikh Genocide where many Sikhs were burnt alive. According to the Indian Express reporter Manish Sanjay Suri, Kamal Nath was in control of the mob and led the mob outside Gurudwara Rakab Ganj, Delhi.

In March 2010, during Kamal Nath's visit to Canada several Justice Rallies were coordinated by Sikhs for Justice against Kamal Nath in Toronto and Ottawa. As a result of Justice Rallies, several Canadian MPs supported the Justice Rallies which include Liberal MP Andrew Kania, Brampton West, MP Sukh Dhaliwal, Newton-North Delta, Edmonton-Sherwood Park. Canadian New Democrat Leader Jack Layton stated that a "divisive and controversial" politician had been invited to Canada and urged his caucus members to boycott Kamal Nath events.

In April 2010, during Kamal Nath's visit to United States, Sikhs for Justice held the "Justice Rally" against Kamal Nath's visit outside McGraw Hill Auditorium, New York.

On April 06, 2010, during Kamal Nath's visit to USA, Sikhs For Justice and Victims of November 1984 Sikh Genocide filed a case against Kamal Nath in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York charging Nath with human rights violations under the Alien Torts Claims Act and the Torture Victims Protection Act. Honorable Judge Sweet issued summons and ordered Kamal Nath to respond to the allegations within twenty one days
