Ludhiana (August 14, 2010): In a statement received by SikhSiyasat Network through email, it is said that All Indian Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) has appealed all religious minorities in India to stand in solidarity with the victims of November 1984 Sikh Genocide by joining in boycotting the August 15 Independence Day Celebrations and observe it as “black day”. AISSF’s call for observing Independence Day as “black day” is in reaction to the Supreme Court’s outrageous decision of staying the prosecution of Congress (I) leader Sajjan Kumar. According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President AISSF, Congress (I) and Indian Government has shielded Sajjan Kumar for 25 years and now when he was finally being prosecuted, Supreme Court of India has come to Sajjan Kumar’s aide.
Karnail Singh Peermohammad stated that India is motherland of Sikhs where their Gurus laid lives for principals of humanity and Sikhs sacrificed more than any other community for the independence of India. On August 15, 1947 India won its freedom from British with the help of Sikhs but unfortunately, in Independent India, Sikhs are made slaves of a system that kills and suppresses the Sikhs and continuously denies them justice.
Peermohammad asked the Sikh community and other religious minorities to commemorate August 15 as a “black day” by raising black flags as a protest against systematic denial of justice to victims of November 1984 Sikh Genocide.
