Canadian Sikh Community Hosts Conference On November 1984 Sikh Genocide

- India's Independence Day Marked By Examining Its Past -

TORONTO, Aug. 13 /CNW/ - In collaboration with the human rights advocacy group Sikhs for Justice, the Canadian Sikh community is hosting a conference welcoming thought leaders and families impacted by the November 1984 Sikh Genocide to document and discuss the mass killing of Sikhs.

    WHEN:        August 15, 2010
                 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.

    WHERE:       Crown Banquet Hall
                 6835 Professional Court
                 Mississauga, ON

    WHY:         More than 3,000 Sikhs were killed in November 1984 following
                 the assignation of Indira Gandhi, but some estimate that the
                 organized genocide that followed actually led to the killing
                 of more than 30,000 Sikhs. To date, the Indian government
                 has failed to bring anyone to justice for the crimes despite
                 evidence implicating members of the Indian National
