London: To commemorate the 33rd anniversary of Army Attack on Sri Darbar Sahib Amritsar, Sikhs from across the UK are expected to gather in Hyde Park in London on today.
As per media reports they will march in protest through Central London before holding a rally in Trafalgar Square at 2 pm. The theme of the rally is Truth, Justice and Freedom.
A prominent Labour Party leader is expected to address the gathering tomorrow.
The Sikhs have been exerting pressure on the government for an inquiry into former Premier Margaret Thatcher’s complicity in the 1984 genocide. Also, they have been demanding an independent UN-led investigation into the 1984 Sikh carnage, notes in The Tribue.
Davinder Singh of Sikh Federation UK claimed that the British UK office had released more papers regarding the Army Attack on Sri Darbar Sahib and their research team led by Phil Miller found a note dated July 3 in 1984 of a request by the Indian government seeking further military assistance immediately after the June 1984 attack.
