London (July 28, 2011): The Sikh Federation (UK) that has over 180 affiliated member organisations, including Gurdwaras, local youth and women’s groups, groups for the elderly and other local Sikh organisations in the UK has sent a letter via email to the SGPC regarding the June 1984 Memorial.
The SGPC web site (sgpc.net) has specifically requested Panthic organisations abroad to respond in writing by 28 July 2011.
The letter sent by Bhai Amrik Singh, Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK), dated 27 July requests the memorial to be:
i) a constant reminder of the Indian army assault on the Akaal Takht in June 1984;
ii) built in a prominent position next to the Akaal Takht
iii) built by a specified target date i.e. June 2012 as the memorial is long overdue; and above all else
iii) reflect the words of Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale, namely:
“Let it be known, when the Indian Army sets foot into the Golden Temple Complex, the foundation stone of Khalistan will be laid.”
The Federation states it has also had many requests from Sikh Gurdwaras, organisations and individual Sikhs across Europe to respond to the SGPC on their behalf along these lines. It has also liaised with Sikhs in Canada and the USA.
