Scottish Sikhs response to Foreign Secretary Statement [05/02/2014]

Commenting on the statement delivered by Foreign Secretary Wlliam Hague, Surinder Singh President said,

“Due to the narrow remit which this internal inquiry was given, the Sikh community rightly calls for a public inquiry into the events of 1984, covering information of the post June 1984 period.

“We ask for the British Government to lay out its proposals on how to recognise the events of 1984 as a genocide.

“Finally, we ask the British Government to explore its role internationally to assist in uncovering the truth of the events of 1984 and the subsequent state-sponsored human rights abuses in Punjab.”
