Ludhiana/Punjab (November 23, 2012): It is learnt that the Sikhs for Justice, a US based Human rights and advocacy group, has created an online petition on the White House website. The petition urges Obama administration to recognize the fact of Sikh Genocide 1984.
The online petition was created by Sikhs for Justice on November 15, 2012. It has already received more than 3,000 online signatures but it requires 25,000 signatures before December 15, 2012.
Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) has observed that a number of people are promoting the petition via Social Networking websites, such as Facebook and Twitter.
The text of the petition is as follows:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
RECOGNIZE “SIKH GENOCIDE” – 30,000+ KILLED IN INDIA DURING NOVEMBER 1984 – “YES, IT IS GENOCIDE”
During November 1984 the Congress Party of India organized and perpetrated violence with intent to destroy the Sikh community, resulting in more than 30,000 killed; women raped; Gurudwaras burnt and more than 300,000 displaced. The systematic violence against Sikhs was concealed and portrayed by the Indian governments as Anti-Sikh Riots.
The intentional and deliberate nature of the attacks on Sikh lives, properties and places of worship during November 1984 makes them crime of GENOCIDE as defined in 18 USC 1091 and as per Article 2 of the U.N. Convention on Genocide.
In 2011-12 mass graves of Sikhs killed during November 1984 were discovered throughout India, which is the most specific and convincing evidence that violence against Sikhs in 1984 was GENOCIDE.
SJF has issued an appeal urging people on sign the petition by visiting White House website at: http://wh.gov/XZj1
