‘Ban en­try of Tytler and Gill in Olympics’

HT Ludhiana Live - - In & Around - FATE­HGARH SAHIB:

All In­dia Sikhs Stu­dents Fed­er­a­tion (AISSF) and Sikhs for Jus­tice (SJF) have urged the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment to not al­low Congress leader Jagdish Tytler and for­mer (DGP KPS Gill into Eng­land.

Both of them are sched­uled to visit Lon­don for the Olympics.

Chron­i­cling the de­tails of hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions by them, AISSF and SJF have sub­mit­ted a mem­o­ran­dum to Sir James Be­van, the Bri­tish high com­mis­sioner to In­dia.

It states that Tytler and Gill were re­spon­si­ble for or­ches­trat­ing geno­ci­dal at­tacks and ex­tra ju­di­cial killings of Sikhs dur­ing 1984-98 in which more than one lakh Sikhs were killed.

Cit­ing the asy­lums granted by the United King­dom to thou­sands of Sikh vic­tims of tor­ture, the mem­o­ran­dum re­minded the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment that al­le­ga­tions of hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions against Tytler and Gill have al­ready been ac­knowl­edged and ac­cepted by UK, Eu­ro­pean Union coun­tries, Canada and US. Aissf­pres­i­dent Kar­nail Singh Peer­mo­ham­mad said the fed­er­a­tion will lobby with the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment to deny en­try to Tytler and Gill.
