Violent Deaths and Enforced Disappearances...

Once again ENSAAF comes through with a ground breaking paper that provides ample quantitative evidence/proof of the atrocities committed by the machinery of the Indian state against innocent people of Panjab.

Dear family, friends and acquaintances - this year 2009 is 25 years since the June '84 and Nov '84 attacks against Sikhs and Sikh institutions. We celebrated 300 of the Khalsa in 1999, 400 years since first Prakash of Adi Granth in 2004, 300 years of Gurgaddi of Guru Granth Sahib ji in 2008. Many more anniversaries and centenniels will come and go. The 25th anniversary of atrocities will also come and go.

I simply humbly ask that you read about the events to be "aware" and that you support organizations like ENSAAF (financially and morally) that are working hard to set the record straight (at the least) and gain "justice" for the innoncent victims all for the hope that such events won't happen again to us nor to any other group or community in India or the rest of the world. I ask that we at least change our attitude and be concerned, very concerned about our past, present and future.

I also ask everyone to join in Ardas of thanks and hope. Thanks to Vahiguru for giving our community hard working lawyers like Jaskaran Kaur and Jasmine Kaur (our sisters who spent time in Cambridge, MA at Harvard) and Sukhman Singh (young energetic man spending months in Panjab helping with data collection and legal cases) and ardas for hope that they continue their work with an attitude of confidence and perserverance.
