LONDON, UK—The leader of the Labour party, the opposition party to the government of the UK, wrote to the Prime Minister, Theresa May, to call for a fresh and independent investigation into the UK’s involvement surrounding the massacre of Sikhs in Amritsar in June 1984.
The Sikh Federation UK, expressed their gratitude as their campaigning for transparency have so far been ignored by the government.
Bhai Amrik Singh, Chair of the SFUK said, “We are grateful the Labour Leader has written to Theresa May to call for a fresh, independent investigation and deliver the British public transparency on the UK role in assisting the Indian authorities in the attempted Genocide of the Sikhs in the 1980s and also silencing the Sikh voice of protest in the UK.”
Jeremy Corbyn is known for raising his voice for human rights and has not hesitating in siding with the Sikhs after hearing over the long suffering of the Sikh people in having justice ignored in both India and the UK.
