"Sikhs for Justice" urge US lawmakers to send delegation to Indian Punjab against Indian brutalities


A U.S.-based Sikh rights group has urged American lawmakers to send a delegation to Indian-held Punjab to assess recent spate of human rights violations of the Sikh community.     

In a press release, Sikhs for Justice said that Sikhs in India are targeted for campaigning to restore their separate religious identity and their inalienable rights to self-determination.

It said that recent events raise a serious question on the religious and political freedoms available to Sikh community in Modi's India, despite hollow claims of secularism and freedom of religion.
