Justice Served — Khalra murders convicted

After a long time in Sikh history, justice has been served. The monsters in Khaki uniforms have been convicted of murdering a Sikh sewadar. Jaswant Singh Khalra, was a panthic sewadar working to shed light on attrocities being committed under the covers of laws like terrorist and disruptive activities act (TADA).

Its been a long time coming but it is definitely a day for history. Officers on the payroll of the Punjab Police have been convicted of murder. We would be foolish to think that DSP and SHO ranked officers did this act on their own without instructions from powers that be. Since the suicide of SSP Sandhu, it will be really hard to find any threads that tie this to any high-ranking officers.

What Sikh panth should mark down today is that Punjab Police did kill Sikhs who spoke up against them. Who within the ranks was doing so is not as important, as the fact that the institution has been convicted today.

For those looking to read up on the case of S. Jaswant Singh Khalra, here is a link to Amnesty Intl. brief.

This is very good news - Sevadaar Khalra was a great man and will always be remembered as a shaheedy who sacrificed his life for the panth.

Your posts are very good and informative.
