Ottawa: On the eve of the 33rd anniversary of the Indian government attack on the Darbar Sahib complex, a Sikh MP from Brampton East Raj Grewal while addressing the Canadian parliament condemned the heinous crime committed against the Sikhs.
In his address in the House of Commons he said that ”33 years ago, the Sikhs changed forever. In a deliberate attack ordered by the Indian government, the Indian Army stormed the Darbar Sahib complex, known in the western world as the Golden temple. Innocent men, women and children lost their lives, the Akal Takhat Sahib was decimated, the Sikh reference library was burned down, and the Sikhs was changed forever.”
”We continue our call for justice for the survivors and an explanation for why and how Sikhs were targeted by those elected to provide for and protect them.”
Raj Grewal is a Canadian Member Parliament and represent East Brampton in the House of Commons in Canada. He was elected during the federal election of October 2015.
