Sikhs Call On UK And US Government For An International Inquiry Into Killings Of 35 Sikhs In Chittisinghpura

2015-03-22_CHATTISINGHPORALONDON, UK—On the 15th anniversary of the Chittisinghpura massacre of 35 innocent Sikhs, the International Sikh community has called upon UK and US Government to facilitate international probe into the cold blooded murders.

Notably, the massacre coincided with the visit of United States president Bill Clinton to India.  When Bill Clinton went to India in March of 2000, it was the first visit by an American president in 22 years.  Bill Clinton had apparently done some risk analysis of his own. Not long before his India trip, he called the region “the most dangerous place in the world.”

The Sikh Federation (UK) has written to the UK Foreign Office and US State Department via the US Embassy in London urging both permanent members of the UN Security Council to push for an international inquiry into the massacre and cover up. 

 Bhai Amrik Singh, the Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK) said:

“The Sikh community in the state has been demanding justice for 15 years. The state government ordered a police enquiry into the massacre, but nothing has been heard of it ever since.

After 15 years, the Indian army personnel responsible for the massacre in Chittisinghpura and the staged encounter five days later are yet to be brought to justice. These incidents represent a very sordid phase in India’s targeting of minorities and we have no faith in the Indian authorities delivering justice.”


  1. I had doubt when I first saw this that it was work of militants…my doubt was cleared when medline albright foreign secretary in Bill Clinton govt claimed in her book that it was work of hindu terrorists.
