Religio-political Discrimination of Sikhs in India: An Approach Paper presented to Ms Asma Jahangir, UN Special Rap
Submitted by dsgill on Thu, 2008-03-06 05:16.

An Approach Paper presented to Ms Asma Jahangir, the visiting UN Special Rapporteur of the Commission on Human Rights on Freedom of Religion or Belief, at Circuit House, Amritsar, on March 3, 2008

Sikhs surfaced predominately on the international scene in the wake of Indian army's invasion of the Golden Temple, Amritsar, in June 1984. The invasion was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjan Dev's martyrdom in Lahore in 1605. The milling crowd of thousands of Sikh pilgrims was fired upon indiscriminately. According to the Indian government's figures, 3,374 were killed in the military action. Sikh estimates vary between 5,000 and 15,000. It's a measure of India's inhumanity towards its ethnic minorities that no commission or human rights agency has investigated these licensed killings that included a large number of old men, women and children. In living memory, this is the first time that state authorities have, as a matter of deliberate policy, assailed and demolished the holiest shrine of a religious minority, the Sikhs. Not even tyrants like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and Ceaucescu did that.

    INDIA'S BRUTAL CAMPAIGN IN PUNJAB DURING 1984-94
    AGAINST
    SIKH LAWYERS, RIGHTS & POLITICAL ACTIVISTS

    This paper on 'The human rights situation in Punjab during 1984-94' was presented at ICSSR Complex, Punjab University, Chandigarh, on July 2, 2006, by International Human Rights Organisation (IHRO) during a Panel Discussion held by The Voices For Freedom

    India had launched a brutal campaign against Sikh lawyers, and human rights and political activists, in the state of Punjab. Main targets were those who have been opposing tooth and nail the state repression let loose on Sikh activists engaged in the ongoing Sikh struggle for an independent and sovereign state, and rendering legal aid to them in judicial courts. At least three Sikh lawyers, one human rights activist's son and a journalist were liquidated at the hands of the Indian security forces as a result of this campaign. Many others were arrested, harassed and detained in jails only because of their activities as lawyers, journalists, leaders of political groups or religious organisations.
