Human Right Group such as PUDR, PUCL who had published the report ‘Who Are the Guilty’ in 1984 are organizing a Candle Light Vigil at India Gate on Ist November 2011 at 5.30 PM to Pay homage to those killed in this November 1984 Carnage and to demand the punishment for the guilty.
We condemn the action of the Delhi Police shielding the guilty of the November 1984 Carnage. A Chargesheet in a murder case against Sajjan Kumar went missing for 18 years. The chargesheet was prepared and finally signed on 8th April 1992, but was never filed in the Court. Inspite of the clarification from the Court, Delhi Police has not filed this chargesheet till today.
In another case, related to Delhi Cantt Police Station, the case was transferred to CBI alongwith all relevant papers in October 2005, however 2 months after that Delhi Police filed a closure report in Court giving clean chit to Sajjan Kumar. Delhi High Court (Justice Vipin Sanghi) has passed strictures against Delhi Police and directed the Police Commissioner to hold enquiry and take action against the guilty Police Officers within 6 months. Though these directions were given on 5th July 2010 till today no action has been taken against guilty Police officials by Delhi Police.
These organizations (PUCL, PUDR and Lok Raj Sangathan) are also involving the University and College students and many other Human Right Groups and prominent citizens are joining them in this March. The posters, a copy of which is attached herewith have been pasted in the Universities and Colleges of Delhi.
You are requested to attend.
Supreme Court of India
Harvinder Singh Phoolka made appeal to all the religious Sikhs and Sikh bodies that it is your duty towards Guru to ensure proper management of Gurudwaras. If any Sikh shirks in his responsibility for the proper management of Gurdwaras, then he would be failing in his duty towards the Guru. He further appealed that for the next 40 days every Sikh should spend 3 to 4 hours a day to ensure proper and smooth elections in accordance with Sikh tenants.
With a specific emphasis to prohibit the use of alcohol and drugs, he appealed to the candidates that neither any candidate should distribute these intoxicants, nor should any of his active workers partake alcohol or drugs in next 40 days of the campaign. When there exists a prohibition on voters to partake alcohol, then how can a worker or campaigner of the candidates be allowed to consume alcohol. He informed that a network is being established in all the constituencies and if any candidate is found distributing liquor or drugs, or his campaigner is found consuming the same during campaign period, then that candidate would be blacklisted and a call would be given to boycott him. Further, steps would be taken to declare him disqualified for the elections.
If any complaint is received regarding distribution of intoxicants, the higher police authorities and the Gurdwara election Commission will be approached. If need be, petitions would b filed in the High Court. A team of lawyers of High Court is being constituted under the charge of Navkiran Singh, Advocate. Any organization or individuals who wants to be a part of this movement, can send an SMS typing the words SGPC at 9230002323 and he would be registered as a volunteer with us. We will communicate with him regularly. The advocates working in District Courts or Tehsil Courts who would like to volunteer their legal services may SMS SGPC-advocate to the number 9230002323.
An attempt is being made to enrol at least 50 volunteers in each constituency. All social and religious Sikh bodies have been contacted and they are forming a joint committee for this purpose.
Kirtan Jathas and kathavachiks are requested to volunteer their services for this movement.
‘Nasha mukt Punjab’ campaign started by Sukrit Trust and Kirat Leher would continue with this movement even after the elections to achieve the objective of a drug-free Punjab.
