THE HINDUVTA POLICIES OF RSS SUPPORTED MODI GOVERNMNET ARE DIRECT THREAT TO SIKHS AND MUSLIMS – HIMMAT SINGH

Newyork (June 4)  Minorities in India are often victims of majority violence. After Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister, these incidents are continuously increasing. Now 600 Sikh families are under constant siege in the capital city Shillong (in the Indian State of Meghalaya) from last several days. A mob of thousands of miscreants is throwing petrol bombs on Sikh Homes and threating the lives of thousands of Sikhs

Sikh Coordination Committee East Coast(SCCEC) has taken note of the attacks on Sikhs in Shillong. 

According to a press release issued by SCCEC “Sikh Coordination Committee East Coast (SCCEC) and American Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (AGPC) have strongly condemned the attacks in Shillong, India on innocent Sikhs families, Sikh businesses and Sikh Gurdwaras by the locals. June is already a very tragic month for the Sikhs. In 1984 Indian troops massacred thousands of Sikhs in Amritsar under a code named secret operation Blue Star. Now 600 Sikh families are under constant siege in the capital city Shillong (in the Indian State of Meghalaya) from last several days. A mob of thousands of miscreants is throwing petrol bombs on Sikh Homes and threating the lives of thousands of Sikhs. This is happening when the cops are deliberately looking to the other way. Sikhs have been living peacefully in Shillong for decades. This trouble started only after the installation of BJP government in Meghalaya 2-3 months back. “The attacks are obviously happening on the behest of RSS, a Hindu Nationalist Group, who openly professes a Hindu nation and has attacked minorities like Muslims and Sikhs throughout India”, said Himmat Singh, Coordinator- SCCEC. He further added, “The Prime Minister of India Modi started his political career as a RSS worker and has openly supported the policies of Hindu Nation and Hindutva”.

The SCCEC working committee members will meet the Human Rights wing of the US State Department to apprise them of the Shillong Sikh situation and put pressure on Indian state to provide proper protection to the Sikhs. In this meeting SCCEC will also share the information of various attacks on minorities, which has occurred during Modi regime and ask US and International Community to take appropriate measures through diplomatic channels to protect minorities in India.”
