“However, it is the only umbrella Sikh organisation that has remained true to its founding principles established 30 years ago in 1984 and has the stated aim of arguing the case for the Sikhs right to self-determination and lobbying for the establishment of an independent sovereign Sikh State” a release by the Sikh Federation (UK) reads.

“Mainstream media coverage of Sikh Federation (UK) campaigning this year has been unprecedented and combined with the unrivaled grassroots support provided by the Sikh community many in positions of responsibility in the UK and in other countries acknowledge and understand the increasing influence of the Sikh Federation (UK) in a diverse range of subjects” it reads further.

“2014 started with revelations about UK Government direct involvement in the Sikh Genocide in June 1984. The Sikh Federation (UK) has led the way in challenging the current UK Government, taking the issue of the 1984 Sikh Genocide to the European Parliament and the United Nations and will be announcing the next steps in the campaign for Truth, Justice and Freedom”.

“The mainstream media is expected to cover the Convention and several key announcements will be made. This will include plans to encourage much wider participation by youngsters and professionals from the Sikh community in activities led by the Sikh Federation (UK) that could be a defining moment for the political awakening of future generations of the Sikh community”.
