Sikhs for Justice: Open Letter to Prime Minister Harper


<p>Deny Kamal Nath entry into <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> just like Osman Saleh Mohamed and <span class="xn-person">Dr. Palitha Kohona</span></p>
<p>WASHINGTON, <span class="xn-chron">March 16</span> /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following open letter to Canadian Prime Minister Harper was released today by Sikhs for Justice:</p>
<p>We urge you to deny Kamal Nath entry into <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> due to his participation in the killings of innocent Sikhs in <span class="xn-chron">November 1984</span> in which more than 3,000 Sikhs were killed.</p>
<p>Evidence regarding the involvement of Kamal Nath in the killings of Sikhs in <span class="xn-chron">November 1984</span> is overwhelming, including the testimony of a reputable journalist, Mukhtiar Singh and other employees of an attacked Gurudwara, who testified seeing Kamal Nath leading an armed mob that attacked a Gurudwara in Rakab Ganj, <span class="xn-location">Delhi</span> and burnt several Sikhs alive.</p>
<p>In addition, Kamal Nath's entry into <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> is also a clear violation of section 35 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of 2001.</p>
<p>In 2008 the Canadian government denied a visa to Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh Mohamed over his alleged participation in the violation of human rights. In <span class="xn-chron">March 2010</span>, your government refused a visa to Sri Lankan official <span class="xn-person">Dr. Palitha Kohona</span> for alleged human rights violations.</p>
<p>Kamal Nath deserves the same treatment from your government. To allow him an entry will flout the democratic agenda that you and your party professed believing in, which Canadian Sikhs supported by electing you into the government.</p>
