Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Saadh Sangat Ji,

We would like to inform you that the journalist Bhai Jarnail Singh will be visiting various Gurdwara’s in Bradford and Leeds on Sunday 12th June. For those who are not aware of Bhai Sahib, he is the journalist who in protest lobbed his shoe in the direction of the Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram during a press conference. His protest was due to the Home Ministers lack of response to Bhai Sahibs questions relating to the CBI’s “clean chit” for Jagdish Tytler in connection with the 1984 anti sikh riots.

Bhai Sahib stood up for the thousands of innocent sikhs that were brutally murdered in the riots, and wanted an explanation from the home minister as to how the perpetrators were able to walk away freely. Even today 27 years on the Sikhs have yet to see those individuals involved, bought to justice.

Bhai Sahib was fired from his post as defence correspondent for the Dainik Jagaran newspaper 3 months after the shoe incident. Since then Bhai Sahib has written a book on the 1984 riots titled “I accuse…”.

Bhai Sahib will be sharing his views on the riots, and the Sikhs ongoing fight for justice.

The schedule so far is as follows:

Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Bradford 10:00 am to 10:50am

Gurdwara Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Bradford 11:00 am to 11:50am

Gurdwara, Chapletown, Leeds 12:15pm to 1:00pm

It is our humble request that the sangat come out and support Bhai Sahib, just as he stood up for the victims of 1984. Please make time and attend the talks at the above Gurdwara Sahib’s.

In addition please note that the book “I accuse…” will be available on the day in both english and gurmukhi for £8.00, once again we can only humbly request that the sangat step forward and purchase a copy of the book.

A link for the book is attached below:

Also a video link about the shoe incident is attached.
