Sikh body seeks UN intervention in Sri LankaApril 24th, 2009 - 7:19 pm ICT by IANS
Amritsar, April 24 (IANS) Expressing its solidarity with the Tamil population in the war-ravaged north Sri Lanka, a radical Sikh organization Dal Khalsa Friday urged the UN to intervene and save the thousands of people trapped in the conflict zone.
Dal Khalsa’s secretary for political affairs Kanwar Pal Singh said the organization was “moved by the sufferings of the Tamil population in Sri Lanka”.
“The Sri Lankan government is getting away with broad daylight murder and mayhem while the international community has failed to take action to minimise the misery and suffering of the thousands in Sri Lanka. This is in violation of all UN norms and resolutions on human rights,” Kanwar Pal Singh said in a statement here.
Singh said the support of the Indian government to the Sri Lankan Army’s onslaught was not good for the overall peace and stability in the subcontinent.
