SIKHS FOR JUSTICE: To Members Of The Canadian Parliament


1947-2014 (Archived)
June 27, 2010

Honorable Member Parliament
House of Commons
Parliament Buildings
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6



Hon’ble Member Parliament:

You must be aware of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s statement of June 26 labeling Canadian Sikhs as “separatists” and “militants”. PM Singh’s recent statement is sequel of the organized campaign launched by the Indian Government to defame and demoralize Canadian Sikhs. Canadian Sikhs are being targeted by the Indian government because of their support to the victims of 1984 Sikh Genocide and their support for justice awareness campaign. The efforts of Canadian Sikhs have brought the issue of Sikh Genocide to such limelight that it has been presented to the Canadian Parliament as a petition.

As Member of Canadian Parliament you are duty bound to represent your constituents before anyone else and convey and carry their message anywhere you go while you enjoy the privileges of being an MP through their votes.

We are bringing this to your notice because you are going to attend the breakfast event hosted by PM Singh in the honor of Canadian MPs of Indian descent. As elected representatives of Canadians you should take this opportunity to raise the issue of Sikh Genocide and Indian Government’s lack of action, with PM Singh and to convey him the demands and concerns of Canadian Sikhs, which are:

1.India should stop character assassination of Canadian Sikhs.
2.India should seriously address the concerns of Canadians regarding human rights abuses in India.
3.India should allow entry to Canadian citizens of Indian descent, who are being denied entry due to their support to victims of Sikh Genocide.
4.India should look into the activities of its officials stationed in Canada who feed the Indian Government with misleading information regarding Canadian Sikhs.

Canadian Sikhs have also written directly to Prime Minister Singh asking for a meeting during his visit to Canada but Indian government acted with its typical arrogance and indifference and did not even respond to the request for a meeting.

We your constituents expect that you will represent our wishes and sentiments during meeting with the PM Singh and rest assured, we will certainly contact you after the event to find out about the PM Singh’s response on this issue.

Sincerely yours,

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun Jitender Singh Grewal
Attorney at Law Director (Canada)
