New York (December 31, 2012): Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) an international human rights group advocating justice for the victims of November 1984 while showing solidarity and sending its “deepest condolences” to the family of the Delhi gang rape victim, questioned the silence of the Indian administration, politicians and the justice system over the rape of Sikh women in broad daylight during first week of November 1984.
While sharing the pain with Delhi gang rape victims for the loss of their daughter who was gang raped in a Delhi Transport Bus, Rights group proclaimed that these are the same buses that were used to transport death squads that raped Sikh women in broad day light during November1984 Sikh Genocide. Successive Governments have not only given impunity to those who perpetrated violent crime of rape against Sikh women but also have rewarded those with official positions.
SFJ announced a reward of $10,000/ (Ten thousand dollars) for the identification and prosecution of those who raped Sikh women during November 1984. The reward of $10,000/ (Ten thousand dollars) will be given to the witnesses who come forward with the identification of rapist and their prosecution.
Attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, legal advisor to SFJ, stated since for the past 28 years the police refused to investigate the reports of rape of Sikh women and the justice system failed the victims, Rights group have retained a team of Senior advocates of Supreme Court of India to start prosecution against those who carried out violent crime of rape during November 1984.
SFJ while responding to Sonia Gandhi’s, statement that “As a woman, and mother, I understand how protesters feel,” “Today we pledge that the victim will get justice,”? questioned that: Did Sonia Gandhi conveniently forget the vicious cycle of rape and murder let loose against the Sikh women in 1984 at the behest of her husband Rajiv Gandhi? Hundreds of those Sikh victims are still languishing in “Widow Colony” just few miles from the Parliament of greatest democratic country without ever being visited by Sonia Gandhi or Indian PM Manmohan Singh.
All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) President Karnail Singh Peermohammad along with Babu Singh Dukhyia, President “National November 1984 Victims Justice and Welfare Society” will lead a team that will interview all the victims to identify the perpetrators and will compile a list of all likely who were involved in the violent crime of rape of Sikh women during November 1984.
