Sikh body to knock UN door in 1984 Sikh genocide case

250px-Sikh-property-burning-1984-delhiAmritsar, Punjab: The All India Sikh Students’ Federation (AISSF) and US-based organization Sikhs for Justice has jointly initiated a campaign to record the statements of the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots by making a video film so as to present it to the UN for creating international pressure on the Indian government to seek justice.

A team of the AISSF and Sikhs for Justice organized a camp here on Thursday and recorded the statements of many riot victims. A similar camp would be organised at Mohali tomorrow for the districts of Mohali, Fatehgarh Sahib and Chandigarh (UT).

Talking to The Tribune, AISSF president Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad said that these camps would be organised in 14 states and 30 cities across the nation in the coming weeks.

He said the AISSF would organize a function on September 13 at Zira in the Ferozepur district to honour the riot victims and chalk out a new strategy to get justice. “We have also proposed to protest outside the court of chief metropolitan magistrate at New Delhi on August 22 to protest against the shifting of the pending criminal case against Jagdish Tytler”. It may be mentioned that the CBI had objected to the legitimacy of this court to hear the case against Tytler.

    Subject: “Some powers” prevented Farooq Abdullah from probing the massacre of 35 Sikhs at Chattisinghpora

    In Indian Unitary form of System, the debates in the Parliament are mostly stage managed dramas and useless, the persons are trained to give senseless statements within and outside Parliament.

    NC president Farooq Abdullah rightly criticised Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) President Simranjit Singh Mann for blaming troopers for the Chattisinghpora incident and replied, it is a senseless statement, and claimed that “some powers” had prevented him from probing the massacre of 35 Sikhs at Chattisinghpora.

    Could the world community conclude that there would be any justice for Sikh massacre committed with the active participation of then ruling party leadership and the circumstances prevailing in India?

    It was also very rightly concluded that if the report of the Liberhan Commission, the Union government’s Action Taken Report, editorials and comment pieces in the media are anything to go by, there’s little room for hope that that which must not happen will not be allowed to happen ever again.

  2. “The persons are trained to give senseless statements within and outside the Indian Parliament”

    In The Indian Unitary System, the debates in the Parliament are mostly stage managed and useless, only held for political reasons and compulsions.

    Sikh massacre and Pranab promises justice to Sikhs

    The National Conference president Farooq Abdullah rightly criticised Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) President Simran Jeet Singh Man for blaming troopers for the Chattisinghpora incident. “It is a senseless statement. We have nothing to do with Punjab politics. We are living in a democratic set up and don’t need advices from the leaders coming from Punjab,” he said.

    Could the world community conclude that there would be any justice for Sikh massacre, committed with the active participation of then the ruling party leadership and under the circumstances prevailing in India?

    The issues mentioned in the operative part of the ‘Amnesty International’ report were very relevant to be decided without diluting and manipulating the issues

    ‘Those Guilty of November 1984 Sikh Massacre Should Be Punished,’ Says Amnesty International
    http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/idUS11311+05-Nov-2009+PRN20091105
    ISSUES:
    “………“Addressing the conference, Amnesty International’s T. Kumar said “We simply want to find out why this deplorable act was committed and ask why it has taken so long for those responsible to be punished. We need to deliver justice for all those Sikhs who suffered in 1984 and their families.”
    The conference was created to expose the true extent of killings as a state sponsored act, in contrast to the Indian government’s position which labeled the killings as “Anti-Sikh Riots.”
    “The killings, burning, robbing, rape and looting of Sikhs has constantly been termed by the Indian government as ‘reaction’ to the murder of Ms. Indira Gandhi on October 31, 1984,” said Sikhs for Justice legal advisor Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.
    “The truth, however is that the Sikh massacre was planned, organized and targeted at the behest of the ruling political party and with the active support and sometimes connivance of Police and law enforcement authorities.
    During the four days of carnage, Sikhs across India were located, identified, targeted and ruthlessly killed by armed and in most cases, hired career criminals and arsonists.
    Politicians at the top of Indian government actively instigated, provoked and ordered the killings while police and local administrators either actively participated or stood passively by.”…………”

    Operative part of the statement
    National Conference president Farooq Abdullah said, “Clinton told me to have food, I denied. I told him that I can’t eat as my heart was crying in pain over the killing of 35 innocent Sikhs.”
    Stating that Clinton has truly written in his book that had he not visited India Chattisinghpora massacre would not have taken place, the NC president said, “I have some reservations about Chattisinghpora incident and I will make these public through my book. The book will be released after my death so that nobody will question me”.

    Can any CM in India order the probe or do the justice against the wishes of “some powers”?
