Ottawa (December 17, 2018): The World Sikh Organization of Canada welcomes the conviction of veteran Congress Party leader Sajjan Kumar by the Delhi High Court today. Kumar was sentenced to life in prison for crimes committed during the 1984 Sikh Genocide, specifically the killing of five Sikhs and the arson of a Delhi gurdwara. Ironically, Monday also saw the swearing-in of Kamal Nath as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. Nath is also accused of leading a mob that attacked a gurdwara and burnt several Sikhs alive in Delhi during the 1984 Sikh Genocide. In its judgment released today, the Delhi High Court found that “the mass killings of Sikhs in Delhi and elsewhere in November 1984 were in fact ‘crimes against humanity’.
