Amritsar, Punjab (October 18, 2013): Marking the 29th year of 1984 genocidal attacks on Sikh community and denial of justice, a “Genocide Petition” will be filed with the United Nations in Geneva on November 01, 2013. More than million signatures have been collected with the help of Sikh community throughout the world under the campaign “1984 Yes Its Genocide”.

The Sikh Genocide Petition will be handed to Navi Pillay, UN Human Rights Chief by a delegation of Sikh NGO’s All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF), “Movement Against Atrocities & Repression” (MAR), ‘Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ), and Gurudwara representatives from Europe and North America.

1984 Yes It’s Genocide

The Sikh Genocide Petition which has been signed by more than million Sikhs, requests the United Nations to investigate the systematic, intentional and deliberate killing of Sikhs carried out throughout India during the first week of November 1984 and recognize the killings as “Genocide” under UN Convention on Genocide.

According to Karnail Singh Peermohammad, President, AISSF, the records obtained through RTI show more than 37,000 Sikh families have been compensated by the Government of India for the loss of their family members but the Courts failed to prosecute any leader who were directly involved in the genocidal attacks on the Sikh community during November 1984.

Bir'ay good point that Geneva is not too far away but I think our focus has got to be on getting as many signatures globally as we can ... and therefater our nominated Panj Pyaaray can present the petition on behalf of global Sangat. As rather than thousands of UK Sikhs spending money on plane tickets, hotels etc we can utilise that money direct to uplift our gareeb brothers and sisters in greater need of hep as I don't believe the Swiss media will give too much air time to the petition ... clever use of media with local Sangat in attendance can work just as effectively as millions of signatures is an undeniable voice from the Panth.

It's not about swiss media - its about the UN - they may not give a damn - if THE UN is at present recognised in the world then we need to present this to them.whether they do somehting or not doesnt matter - our duty as sikhs is to do something..funny thing no one still hasnt posted an adderess where the meet up will be-- great input here.!!!

Fri 1st Nov , United Nations Building, Geneva, Switzerland 11.00- 16.00 Swiss time.

For over 1 year the Sikh Nation has been working tirelessly in an effort to obtain 1 000 000 signatures from across the world to petition the United Nations to investigate the 1984 Sikh Genocide. The journey was long and hard. But as of October 21st, 2013 All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) weighed all the signed petitions and in combination with the signatures obtained around the globe, we have now surpassed over 1 000 000!

BUT THE STRUGGLE STILL CONTINUES

Veer many Thanks for posting the details - much much appreciated.

And you are correct indeed - instead of spending £200 odd going up there it's better to contribute to seva84 or SOPW as we have 1m signauteres which will be handed in anyway.

Most Gurdwaras are saying the cost is 30 pounds in the note above. Most people should be able to afford both attending the demo and giving to organisations. Some Gurdwaras are doing firework displays, money should be diverted to this cause.

Author: PTI

• Last Updated: Oct 21, 2013 10:28 PM

Akal Takht, the top temporal seat of the Sikhs, today asked various groups representing the community to file a petition in the United Nations, seeking justice for the victims of 1984 riots.

Akal Takht head priest Gurbachan Singh said he had asked the All India Sikhs Students Federation and other Sikh outfits to file a petition, carrying a million signatures, pertaining to the '84 carnage before the UN.

The perpetrators of the violence should be brought to book at the earliest, he said.

Yes, you are right. The Indian Express is exchanging the term "riots" for Genocide.

The general blind ignorance of the Indian press refuses to let them admit that organised pogroms are an attempt to wholly or partially terminate a particular community (i.e. Genocide) - not mere "riots".

Of course, it's only when Sikhs are massacred.

If it was to be Hindus or Muslims, they would have been the first to be screaming "genocide!!!"

    • Changing his viewpoint on Sikhs being vegetarian -   
    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
