New Delhi (November 1, 2011): On the 27th anniversary of November 1984 Massacre of Sikhs, victims and widows of 1984 held an Insaaf Yaatra from Hondh-Chillar, Haryana to Supreme Court of India. Victims urged the apex court to take suo moto action by ordering country wide investigation to determine the true nature, scope and scale of attack on Sikh population of India and resulting deaths during November 1984. Yaatra was attended by people numbering in several thousands, carrying placards and lamenting utter denial of justice despite lack of 27 years.
Victims and Sikh organizations submitted a Memo to the Supreme Court addressed to the Chief Justice of India and all justices of the Supreme Court, urging the court to order a countrywide investigation regarding November 1984.
Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President AISSF stated that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has asked the victims of 1984 “forgive and forget November 1984” while no justice has been delivered. PM Singh and his government is determined not to deliver any justice to the victims of November 1984 that is why, the victims have decided to approach the Supreme Court of India.
Davinder Singh Sodhi, Secretary General AISSF stated that with the newly discovered mass graves of Sikhs killed during November 1984 in several states, there remains no doubt that Sikhs were attacked and killed throughout India and not Delhi alone. It is unfortunate that no judicial inquiry has ever been conducted to determine the true scale and scope of this gross human rights violation. Supreme Court of India must take suo moto action on this matter, added Sodhi.
Babu Singh Dukhiya, President National 1984 Victims Justice and Welfare Society stated that widows and orphans of November 1984 has been denied justice for the last 27 years because, to date, not a single leader and organizer of attack on Sikhs has ever been convicted. This appeal for Suo Moto action to the Supreme Court is our last hope in India, added Babu Singh Dukhya.
Engineer Manvinder Singh Giaspur who first found the Mass Grave in Hondh-Chillar, Haryana, stated that in March 2011, Sri Gayani Gurbachan Singh, Jathedar Sri Akal Takhat Sahib laid foundation stone of Sikh Genocide Memorial Cite at Hondh Chillar, however, Badal Government and Badal controlled SGPC has turned its back and has completely ignored the project of Sikh Genocide Memorial Cite.
Insaaf Yaatra was organized by All India Sikh Students Federation along with National 1984 Victims Justice and Welfare Society; Sikhs for Justice; Engineer Manvinder Singh Giaspur; Sardar Santhok Singh Sawney, President Gurudwara Singh Sabha Sabzi Mandi, Gurgaon, Haryana; Sardar Onkar Singh Faridabad, President Gurudwara Singh Sabha Faridabad; Sardar Surjeet Singh Dugree, President, November 1984 Sikh Nasal Kushi Society; and Bibi Gurdeep Kaur President Women Wing, November 1984 Sikh Nasal Kushi Society
