Sikh-Americans to protest in front of White House during Indian PM visit PDF Print E-mail
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON, Nov 22 (APP): As India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be meeting President Barak Obama in the White House,the east coast Sikh American community will protest the repressive Indian regime and ask the U.S. leader to raise the issue of New Delhi’s genocidial policies, an organization said Sunday.

For the past 25 years, every time a prime minister of India has visited the United States, Sikhs have protested the Indian genocidal policies against the Sikhs, Dr Amarjit Singh of Khalistan Affairs said in a statement.
“Twenty five years ago, on June 03, 1984, during the reign of the 2nd Prime minister of India’s Nehru Dynasty, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, a savage Indian army attack was ordered on Sikhism’s holiest site (its sanctum sanctorum), the Akal Takht Sahib, located in the Darbar Sahib complex in Amritsar, which action was synchronized with assaults on thirty seven other holy Gurdawaras located in the Sikh homeland. For us Sikhs, the memory of those attacks is a ‘diary’ that we carry about with us.”
“How is it that the world’s so called largest democracy can also be the world’s most oppressive regime?
“This Nation has denied minorities the freedoms which every person is entitled to on their birth in this world. The first is the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of every person to worship God in his own, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear. These freedoms must be returned to Sikhs,” he continued.
“The only way this is possible is through the establishment of an independent sovereign nation,Khalistan, which will also act as a buffer state between arch rival nuclear nations India and Pakistan,” Amarjit Singh stated.
“We urge President Barack Obama to bring up the issue of the genocidal policies of India against the Sikhs when he meets the visiting Prime Minister,” he sad in the statement released to the media.
