Washington, USA: Condemning the culture of capital punishment to only the members of India’s minority community, “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ), a US based human rights group criticized the judicial system which failed to take cognizance and convict the powerful politicians responsible for the 1984 genocide of Sikhs.
Terming Yakub’s execution for his alleged role in 1993 Mumbai blasts as “travesty of justice”, attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, legal advisor to SFJ claimed that how will you justify a system that could not convict any political leader who are responsible for 1984 genocidal violence in which more than thirty thousand Sikhs were killed in three days but convicted more than 100 persons responsible for 275 deaths in Mumbai”.
“Just because those who were killed in 1984 genocidal violence belonged to minority community “Sikhs” and those who died in 1993 serial blasts belonged to majority community “Hindus” questioned attorney Pannun.
