The World Sikh Organization of Canada (WSO) expresses concern over the denial of justice to the victims of state organized and directed massacre of innocent Sikhs in November 1984.
The government of India acknowledged that 384 places of Sikh worship were burnt and destroyed and nearly 3000 innocent people were killed – a number equal to the loss of life in the 9/11 tragedy, not one individual has been found guilty of this genocidal massacre of innocent people in the capital of the country that prides itself as world’s largest democracy.
June of 1984 witnessed India’s military machine marching against holiest shrines of the Sikhs. Countless thousands of innocent protestors were killed by the military. Was it in any way less serious or less gruesome than the fate of innocent Falun Gong victims in China?
With ample documented records in the public domain supporting our firm belief of Indian government hired agents-provocateurs masterminding and implementing unlawful activities in Canadian society, it is fair to expect our Canadian government to take stern action against people or agencies, even if these are sponsored by a foreign government, that disrupt peace, harmony and goodwill in Canadian society.
It is encouraging to see our government according much deserved recognition and honours to Rev. Dalai Lama in the face of vehement objections by world’s largest military power – China. It is reasonable to expect our national leaders to call upon the government of India to clear our society of trouble-makers, criminals, informers and instigators planted in our midst and who continue to challenge the resources and energies of our law enforcement agencies.
Canada enjoys a well deserved reputation for its leading role in upholding human rights in Rwanda, Darfur, Bosnia or Afghanistan. It must not shy away from equally pressing needs of a similar nature, particularly as it pertains to the highly visible religious minority of Sikhs.
WSO Canada President, Gurpreet Singh Bal said, “Thousands of innocent Sikhs are brutally murdered on the streets of India’s capital and 23 years later, we still don’t have anyone guilty of those horrible crimes. It is obvious that the government is protecting its own criminal friends and operatives.”
