December 2, 2014 | By

Washington, USA: A recently launched ‘White House petition’ urges Barack Obama to question Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that why Indian Constitution labels Sikhs as ‘Hindus’ during his visit to India to attend India’s republic day.

The petition launched on December 01, 2014 requires 1 Lakh signatures by 31 December. The petition has secured 513 signatures so far.


Question Modi “WHY Indian constitution labels “Sikhs” as Hindus?” while attending Constitution Day events on January 26.

Sikhism, with over 30 million followers, is the world’s 5th largest religion.

On January 26, 1950 Constitution of India was enforced without the consent of Sikhs who refused to sign it because Explanation II to Article 25(b) of the Constitution labels “Sikhs” as “Hindus”.

January 26, 2015 marks the 65th year of Sikhs’ struggle for right to self-determination, for which Sikhs have been subjected to “Genocide” with impunity, starting from:

– June 1984, Military action against Golden Temple;

– November 1984, Organized killing of over 30,000 Sikhs; and

– 1984-98, Extra-judicial killing of over 100,000 Sikhs.
