World Sikh Organization Renews Demand for Justice for Victims of 1984 Massacre in India's Capital

    OTTAWA, Nov. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - 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?

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
    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
