Dal Khalsa approaches UN to set up Commission

Hoshiarpur, Holding Indian government responsible for massive human rights violations including torture, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings during the heydays of militancy in Punjab, the Dal Khalsa has approached the United Nations urging the world body to intervene for the sake of justice.
Party head H S Dhami told the media here that the party representatives from Europe Manmohan Singh Khalsa and Pritpal Singh Switzerland met Ms Katia Chirizzi, Senior Advisor at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights at Geneva and submitted a memo addressed to UN Secretary General. They were accompanied by Kuldeep Singh and Sukhdev Singh.
Both the leaders remained with the UN official for more than one hour and stressed the need to prosecute all those who formulated, planned and organized grave human rights abuses under the garb of fighting militancy.
They sought the setting up of a Commission under the aegis of the United Nations to unearth the involuntary detentions, and death of Sikhs in fake encountersin the last 3 decades.image (1)

"What can be more painful to a mother and father than the fact that even after a gap of so many years, they do not know whether their son is still alive or was killed extra-judicially by the central forces or by the state police?”,  Dhami asked.
Taking a dig at world community's silence, he said, "We believe that either the world community has failed to see or is turning a blind eye to the stark reality that ethnic minorities are unsafe in India".
The delegation apprised the UN about the fate and status of 6 prisoners for whose release Gurbakash Singh is fasting unto death since November 14, at Gurdwara near Ambala in Haryana state.
