Mapping Crimes Against Humanity: Ensaaf Releases Website in Punjabi with over 5000 cases

Ensaaf today announced that its Mapping Crimes Against Humanity site is now available in Punjabi. The Crimes Against Humanity Data Project is a portrait of widespread and systematic enforced disappearances and extrajudicial executions, based on data collected through primary source interviews. Ensaaf created this site to build an informed consensus on the nature of the crimes perpetrated by India’s security forces in Punjab.

The recent update now allows the data to be viewed in Punjabi or English.


Ensaaf further announced that they are continuing to add new cases to their database. Recently, they had added 30 new cases of enforced disappearances or extrajudicial executions, including the cases of Gurdev Singh KaunkeUmrao Singh, and Bhupinder Singh Canadian.

“We hope the Punjabi version of the site will make the information more accessible to survivor and Punjabi-speaking communities throughout the world,” a press release by Ensaaf noted. Ensaaf appreciated the support by the Khalsa Credit Union for supporting the translation of this site.
