1984 Sikh Genocide’ report to be submitted to UN secretary general

NEW YORK (TIP): The Sikhs For Justice plans to submit a report to UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon on the genocidal violence against the Sikh community, on 7th November, on the 30th anniversary of November 1984 massacre of Sikhs in Delhi and other parts of India.

“The report ‘1984 Sikh Genocide’ will carry details of the preplanned and deliberate killings of the Sikhs in 19 states of India, eyewash investigations by successive governments, zero convictions and the failure of the Supreme Court to take cognizance of thousands of deaths during the first week of November 1984,” announced SFJ. “On November 7, while submitting the report, thousands of Sikhs from North America and European Union will converge at the UN headquarters to highlight the denial of justice and continuous impunity to Indian political leaders involved in the 1984 genocidal violence,” said SFJ legal adviser Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

A ‘Sikh genocide complaint’, urging the UN to investigate the “systematic, intentional and deliberate” killing of Sikhs carried out across India during the first week of November 1984 and to recognize these attacks as genocide, is already pending before the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). The complaint, with support of more than million signatures, was filed with UNHRC on November 1, 2013.

If the UN working group on communications decides to hear the Sikh genocide complaint, it is likely to hold hearings in 2015 August to allow the 1984 victims to present evidence related to the genocide. “The victims and the community are going to the international forum after the Indian establishment failed the victims and justice was denied to them,” Pannun said
