Ontario, Canada: Parm Gill, MP from Brampton—Springdale, Ontario delivered a speech in Canadian parliament briefing the facts related to November 1984 Sikh Genocide. He called upon members of the house to contemn the atrocities and remember the victims of 1984.
Text of speech by MP Parm Gill:
Mr. Speaker, this year marks the 30th anniversary for the tragic massacre of the Sikhs in India in 1984. Thousands of Sikh men women and children were tortured and brutally murdered in New Delhi and other parts of India. This massacre of Sikhs was a deliberate and calculated act by the perpetrators responsible.
In 2009 the New Delhi High Court proclaimed that ‘though we boasted to be the world’s largest democracy, the sheer mention of the incident of 1984 anti-Sikh riots in general and the role played by the Delhi police and the state machinery in particular makes our head hang in shame’.
Mr. Speaker these were not a just fundamental human rights issues, Sikhs around the world call for answers for these senseless killings and the justice for the victims of this tragedy.
I call on all members of this house to join me and condemning this atrocity and remembering the victims of 1984.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
