The protesters demanded that a resolution should be passed in British parliament that aid given by the then British prime minister Margaret Thatcher to India for planning June 1984 attack on Sikhs was illegitimate.

The memorandum also asked the UK government to take responsibility for the act on its own shoulders and condemn it.

“The then British government is equally accused of committing a sin with Indra Gandhi, the then PM of India,” said Karnail Singh Peermohammad.
