Amritsar,punjab: Various organizations have announced to start ‘Forgotten Citizen’ campaign from Jallianwala Bagh on October 21st, informed head of movement and senior advocate HS Phoolka on Monday.
He said as per government records, around 3000 people were killed in 1984 anti Sikh riots in 48 hours which counts to one killing in less than a minute and not a single punishment given to the culprits for last 28 years.
He said the youth of today had decided to start the campaign “Forgotten Citizens” where many organizations pledged to fight for the injustice done to Sikhs. “Through Forgotten Citizens, we plan to request Government to provide justice to them who lost their families in Delhi 1984 riots” he said.
Keeping this thought in mind, many organizations including Sikh Forum, SikhiSidak, Gyan SewaTrust, Better Sikh School, Bibek Trust, Lok Raj Sangthan, Bachpan Bachao Andolan, ASYO, YSL, Akal Network, Vismaad, had joined hands together to show support and unity against justice denied to Sikhs for 1984 Delhi Carnage.
The campaign would go to cities like Sultanpur Lodhi, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Chandigarh displaying mobile picture exhibition on 1984 Carnage. The campaign would reach Delhi on October 28. “On 3rd November, 3 PM we plan to move together from Jantar Mantar to Parliament House and submit our memorandum/petition to Prime Minister of India” said Phoolka.
Great !! I think this should be a global movement and we should invite our locals to see the many forgotten citizens, from babies to old.
