Indira Gandhi peace award is given in the name of late PM of India Mrs. Indira gandhi but to throw dust in eyes of peace lovers. She is responsible for invasion on highest seat of Sikh faith Sri Akal Takhat sahib at Golde Temple & destroy it by tanks, thousands of innocent pilgrims killed in this operation but she never regretted. Instead her words were :Indira Gandhi had given such orders to General Vaidya, the Commanding officer in chief of Indian army as;
“I don’t give a damn if the Golden Temple and whole of Amritsar are destroyed, I want Bhindranwale dead.” (Indira Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister, communicating with Gen. Vaidya during “Operation Blue Star”)
After her assassination due to this attack, his son Rajiv gandhi orchestrated massacre of Sikhs called as SIKH GENOCIDE 1984, against which a memorandum with one million signatures is recently handed over to President UNO. I request you on behalf of whole Sikh nation…kindly refuse to accept this award as its not in the name of peace but to remind us the tyrannies we Sikhs faced and still face in India as the perpetrators of Sikh genocide are shielded and placed on high profile posts and in cabinet also.
No legal action against them is possible in India.
We shall be highly obliged. Being a writer i have written a book on Sikh genocide 1984 which i have made it public on line, kindly view it and justify yourself if you should accept this award or refuse.
I better remind her majesty that Prof. Davinder pal Singh Bhullar who had applied in Germany for political asylum was deported to India is on dearth row in India. The German Parliament too sent a letter to President of India for mercy but was turned down by India.
Germany is morally obliged to intervene because Bhullar’s case exposes weaknesses in the German asylum system which has led him to face the death penalty. A one hundred thousand signature petition was handed over to a member of the Bundestag in September 2001 in addition to online petitions and letters. A 4 million person petition against the death penalty was presented to the United Nations by Sant Egidio church.
The other bizarre part of the case is that Bhullar was deported from Germany in 1995, even when Germany fully realised that deporting someone to a death-penalty prone country violates the European Convention on Human Rights. After his deportation, the court of appeal in Frankfurt admitted his appeal and said that he should not been deported as he would face torture, harassment and death in India and were he to re enter to Germany he would be given asylum Verwaltungsgericht Frankfurt, Case 8E5039994.A(1). Upon entering India he was arrested and subjected to torture.
Just have a look on copy of that letter as follows;

I am writing to you on behalf of the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid of the German Bundestag on a matter of extreme urgency, which is causing great concern in Germany.
In 1995, the Indian citizen Professor Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar, a Sikh who had applied for political asylum in Germany, was deported from Germany to India. This deportation, as was subsequently recognised and confirmed by court ruling, should never have taken place, since the German authority carrying out the deportation had committed grave procedural errors.
Subsequent to his deportation, Professor Singh Bhullar was sentenced to death in India on August 2001 for his alleged involvement in a bomb attack. His appeal at the Supreme Court of India in March 2002 was also unsuccessful. Whilst two of the three judges upheld the death sentence, the presiding judge at the Supreme Court submitted a dissenting opinion, pleading for an acquittal, citing a lack of corroborative evidence for Professor Singh Bhullar’s “confession”.
In addition, Mr Singh Bhullar retracted his “confession”, which he said had been extracted under torture. In another hearing at the Supreme Court on 17 December 2002, two of the three judges present again upheld the death sentence on Mr Singh Bhullar. We understand that Mr Singh Bhullar filed a petition to the Supreme Court on 16 January 2003, which has not yet been decided on by the court. If this last legal remedy fails, there is a risk that the death sentence might be enforced straight away.
Your Excellency, as you are aware, Professor Singh Bhullar filed a petition for a pardon to you on 15 January. I would like to stress that the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid strongly supports this petition. We urgently appeal to you to make use of your power to grant a pardon, so that Professor Singh Bhullar’s death sentence is not enforced.

Chairwoman of the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid
With kind regards,
Ajmer Singh Randhawa.
