JALANDHAR : Stating that the grant of Rs 5 lakhs compensation to victims of November 1984, Delhi anti-Sikh riots cannot substitute "Prosecution of 1984 Genocide Perpetrators", US based rights group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) has announced to hold a gathering before the United Nations Headquarters, New York to highlight the denial of justice.

"Sikhs from North America and victims and survivors of the massacre will converge on UN headquarters on November 7, the 30th anniversary of worse massacre of independent India, to highlight the denial of justice and continuous impunity to Indian political leaders involved in the genocidal violence against the Sikh community," said SFJ legal advisor Gurpatwant Singh Pannun .

"A report will be submitted to Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations highlighting the failure of the international body to recognize the 1984 anti -Sikh violence as "Genocide" and the failure of the UN in investigating the systematic killings of Sikhs, a religious minority in India," he said.
