Amritsar : Seeking UN intervention, Dal Khalsa chief Harchranjit Singh Dhami said all attempts to get justice within the legal framework of the Indian system for the victims of Nov 1984 carnage have failed.
He was speaking at a protest sit-in organized by his party’s youth wing the ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’ to voice their anger against the mass killings of innocent Sikhs in Delhi and elsewhere in Nov 1984.
The gathering passed a resolution urging the United Nations to intervene as the Indian state has bitterly failed to deliver justice even after 27 years of the tragic episode. The organizers said the copy of the memo will be sent to Delhi and Geneva UN offices.
Paying tributes to thousands of innocents that were killed in the capital of the country, the activists performed ardas at Akal Takht. Thereafter they assembled at Hall Gate, where a two hour sit-in was organized.
The spirited gathering shouted slogans condemning the Indian state as well as Congress for engineering the mass killings of Sikhs 27 years ago. A large size banner of Sonia Gandhi with eyes closed and Dr Manmohan Singh with lips sealed were displayed on which it was written 10,000 Sikhs killed, 10 Commission’s were formed and 27 years have passed, but justice is still a far cry
A large number of young boys led by Ranbir Singh and Tarjinder Singh Sohal were carrying black flags to mark their protest. To convey their message they were holding placards. “Why Anna Hazare is silent on Nov Sikh massacre”, reads one banner.
Dal Khalsa head H S Dhami who led the protest march, said Sikhs in Punjab, India and the Diaspora have cried hoarse for the last 27 years, that such gross injustice should shame the rulers of the country, but to no avail.
Referring to his so-called fight against the corruption, Dhami criticized the stoic silence of Anna Hazare on the sufferings of minorities in the country. “Why Anna’s crusade is only focused on corruption and not against genocide of politics being played by both Congress and BJP since last few years”, said Dhami.
Another Party leader Kanwar Pal Singh took a dig at Badal family for hurting the emotions of aggrieved families. When Badals were supposed to organize public protests to mark the genocide week (Nov 1-3), they were merry making with Bollywood stars at the inauguration of Kabaddi tournament at Bhatinda.
