    Sikh group asks US to declare 1984 violence as genocide| Feb 8, 2013, 01.29 PM IST

    WASHINGTON: A US Sikh rights group has met State Department officials in support of its petition to the Obama administration to recognise the violence against Sikhs in India in November 1984 as " genocide".

    "Contrary to what is commonly portrayed, November 1984 was not the result of a spontaneous reaction of the masses on the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi," Sikh for Justice (SFJ) legal advisor Gurpatwant Singh Pannun said.

    "It was rather an organized, deliberate and politically engineered action by Congress (party) leaders," he said.



    In a media release on Thursday, SFJ said to secure support for its "genocide" petition, it had met various officials of the US Department of State.

    It had also submitted a legal brief, statements of survivors and evidence relating to the 2011 discovery of mass graves in Hondh-Chillar, Haryana, and other states of India.


    The group also presented official Indian government records showing that a total of 35,000 claims of deaths and serious injuries were filed by Sikhs who suffered attacks during November 1984.



    More than 20,000 of these claims were from attacks that took place in the states of Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, it said.

    On Dec 15, a petition with more than 46,000 signatures was submitted to the Obama Administration urging it to recognise the violence against Sikhs during November 1984 as genocide.

    Sikhs are good people and PM is a Sikh, so is Army General.

    The last threat to Pakis came from both these and war mongering Pakis all of a sudden started talking peace and de-esclation and probe. :lol:

    Sikhs are one of the most patriotic ethnic groups of India!they have sacrificed a lot for the sake of our Motherland.even though they are around 2-3% of our population,they constitute around 20-25% of the Indian Armed Forces.heck there are many villages in Punjab where every household sends their sons to join the Armed Forces:salute:.so in one word Sikhs are the pride of India and i sincerely hope that they will get their due justice for the crimes committed against our Sikh brethren in '84!

    you usually post about indian muslims true colour and they are not patriotic or related

    the reason i said doesnt it makes muslims in india more patriotic than sikh(less in number than muslims in india) even though they are just 2-3% in indian army(i dont know about the sikh %age in indian army but they are more than 20% atleast even though muslims in india are several times more than sikh in india

    Good then, and while you are at it again showing false brotherhood :devil:. What about the Hindu,(victims of forced conversions etc), Christian,(victims of blasphemy law etc) Ahmadiyya and the Shia's community,(the list goes on and on).

    How many Sikhs in :pig: Army, Police, govt posts, industry, politics?

    ''Sikh are dil and jaan of pakistan'', when do we expect a Sikh Pak PM or President?

    Only Sikh traffic warden in Lahore police resigns over turban abuse

    Lahore, Apr 23 (ANI): Gulab Singh, the only Sikh warden in traffic police in Lahore, reportedly resigned last weekend after one his colleagues misbehaved with him and even tossed up his turban. After submitting his resignation, he said that it was a routine affair that his colleagues misbehaved with him and made fun of him being a Sikh.

    He said that he was being discriminated against for not being a Muslim due to which his colleagues made fun of his religion. Singh often took his complaints to his seniors, but they did not take the matter seriously, because of which he was forced to resign.

    Singh claimed that the trouble began four days prior to his resignation, when he was deputed, along with wardens Asif and Faisal, to manage traffic. He said that Faisal had suddenly left his post at about 3pm. Later, a senior asked about him and also broadcasted a wireless message, inquiring about Faisals whereabouts. At about 7 pm, Faisal returned and misbehaved with Singh for having informed the senior about his absence, the Daily Times quoted him as saying.

    According to him, Faisal left yet again at 7:30 pm and bribed the officials at wireless control with dinner so that they would not inform the high-ups about his absence. Singh said that this was routine practice in the Traffic Department. Singh also said that the next day when he reached his post, one of the wardens, Mubasher, misbehaved with him and forcibly took off his turban.

    Singh complained to Inspector Shahid Nadeem, who, according to Singh, did not bother. Singh also alleged that the traffic wardens who were present there, made fun of him. This was the point where Singh tendered his resignation immediately and he said that no one called him from the department in order to make an enquiry.

    On the other hand, Singhs colleagues maintained that he had been threatening to resign ever since he was recruited. They also claimed that now when Singh acknowledged that all his colleagues, including his seniors, had begun to understand him and had stopped pressurising him, he resigned. (ANI)
