Takhtupura/Moga (January 15, 2011): Sikh bodies, Sikhs for Justice, November 1984 Sikh Genocide Justice Committee and All India Sikh Students Federation (Peer Mohammad), have urged Punjab Government led by Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) to adopt a resolution acknowledging events of November 1984 as the Sikh Genocide. “Since SAD (Badal) has publicly acknowledged November 1984 as ‘Sikh Genocide’, the AISSF, November 1984 Sikh Genocide Justice Committee and Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) have demanded that SAD (Badal) should bring Sikh Genocide resolution in the Punjab Assembly” informs a press release sent by Karnail Singh (Peer Mohammad), president of AISSF.
As per this release, while addressing the gathering at Takhtupura, near Moga, AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad stated that SAD (Badal) should demonstrate its sincerity and commitment to the issue of raising voice for November 1984 victims by passing the ‘Genocide Resolution’ during the upcoming Punjab Assembly Session.
“On January 24, 2011 Sikh Genocide Resolution and Rehabilitation and Representation Package Memo will be presented to Chief Minister Badal and MLAs of SAD (Badal), announced Peer Mohammad.
SFJ is filing a Petition before United Nations to recognize the November 1984 Sikh Massacre as “Genocide”. According to Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, SFJ legal advisor, because SAD (Badal) now claims to be champion of the cause of November 1984 and working for the victims of November 1984, Punjab’s CM Parkash Singh Badal should bring the Sikh Genocide Resolution in Punjab Vidhan Sabha to set the history records straight. Moving the Sikh Genocide Resolution in Punjab Vidhan Sabha is completely within powers of SAD (Badal), added attorney Pannun.
According to Rajinder Singh Sangha, Bibi Balwinder Kaur, Darshan Singh “Moga, Baljit Kaur, and Mohinder Singh, representatives of November 1984 Sikh Genocide Justice Committee, under a nationwide “Rehabilitation and Representation Package” campaign, rallies will be organized and memorandums will be presented to Chief Ministers of all states where Sikhs were killed during November 1984” adds the release.
Political observers say that there is little chance that Parkash Singh Badal or Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) would listen to such appeals, as it has allied up with the Indian state to seek, and remain in, power in Punjab. Yet they recognize the value to move taken by these Sikh bodies to pressurize Badal Government to support the common cause.
