> PRESS RELEASE JANUARY 27, 2013
>
> Both the Kashmiri and Sikh Diasporas carried out a protest on January 27,
> 2013, outside Pearson Convention Center Brampton, Canada to send a strong
> message to the India's Consulate General who was present. Inside, the
> Consulate General of India, along with the Indian community, were
> celebrating India’s 64th Republic day.
>
> While they were celebrating, the Indian community forgot that the
> constitution was rejected by the Sikh Parliamentarians in Indian parliament
> because the Sikh Homeland Punjab (Khalistan) was merged into the Indian
> union forcefully, without any vote for the right to self-determination or
> referendum. Besides, when the draft was developed, Sikhs were deprived of
> their identity and were homogenized as long haired Hindus. More than six
> decades after this event, 270,000 Sikhs have been mercilessly killed and
> their religious centers including The Darbar Sahib Complex, Amritsar, also
> mistakenly known Golden Temple Complex, was desecrated and destroyed in an
> 'undeclared' war on the Sikh Nation. This took place in the form of the
> brutal military "Operation Bluestar" of June 1984. The Indian government
> has ignored the reality that Punjab had been the sovereign territory of the
> Sikhs for centuries (1799 to 14th March, 1849) and, the Sikhs have been
> "Struggling to regain their lost sovereignty since 14th March, 1849, under
> the guidance of the teachings of their Respected Guru Sahebaans, inscribed
> in the Blissful Guru Granth Sahib. The Brahmins-Hindus' masters of Indian
> Congress have wiped off the map the sovereign Sikh Homeland Punjab
> (Khalistan) as well as Sikh Nation, the First Sovereign and Secular nation
> of the South Asian region.
>
> Similarly, India occupied Manwadar, Junagarah, Hyderabad, and on October
> 27, 1947, forty two thousand square miles of the state of Jammu and Kashmir
> while enslaving its people. Kashmir is a state predominantly inhabited by
> Muslims. Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India took the
> matter to the United Nations which passed a resolution that the fate of the
> state of Jammu and Kashmir should be decided by plebiscite. To this day the
> Indian government is using false pretenses in order to avoid plebiscite
> which would have the destiny of the state decided by the democratic wishes
> of its citizens. In over six decades, the Indian government has killed over
> 200,000 citizens in the state and there is not one day that goes by in
> which the Indian government forgoes all its means in order to suppress the
> populace from their right of self determination and ultimate freedom.
>
> The Indian government which is an illegal occupier is strategically trying
> to dictate the terms of settlement of this issue. It is arguing that for a
> plebiscite to take place that Pakistan should withdraw its forces from Azad
> Kashmir despite the fact that the entire state was to accede to Pakistan
> and is legally the territory of Pakistan. Thus, we can see how India as an
> occupier is attempting ignore the fact that it is the occupier and
> diverting the onus to the Pakistani state. This argument is extremely
> flawed as the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir and its citizens are
> Pakistani territory and citizens respectively. India is vehemently arguing
> this stance as a means to complicate the simple issue of plebiscite that
> must take place. Its stand exposes the mass hypocrisy and democratic
> deficit in the Indian state. To put into context, this argument is
> synonymous with Pakistan invading half of Delhi and six decades later
> propagating to the international community that India should withdraw from
> the other half in order to administer a plebiscite on the ground. In
> reality, the Indian state should have sanctions placed on it for behaving
> as a rogue state in the international system and should compensate the
> citizens of Jammu and Kashmir and the Pakistan state for the massive
> material and human rights costs that it has caused.
