rights group web site hacked - Complained filed with FBI|
website of Sikh for Justice (SFJ)
www.sikhsforjustice.org - a US
based human rights advocacy group which is seeking justice for
the victims of November 1984 Sikh Genocide, has been hacked.
SFJ has filed a written complaint with the Internet Crime
Complaint Center (IC3), a Unit of Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI) which is responsible for investigating and
prosecuting internet crimes.
The cyber attack on the group's website has come at a time
when SFJ is in the midst of active litigation before the US
Federal Court with Indian National Congress and Union Minister
Kamal Nath for their respective roles in organizing November
1984 Genocide of Sikhs. According attorney Gurpatwant Singh
Pannun, legal advisor to SFJ, the recent cyber attack on the
SFJ website is part of the well coordinated efforts by certain
quarters to silence Sikh community's demand for justice which
has gained global momentum through the active litigation at
international forums. However, such nefarious attacks will
only make the Sikh community more resolute and united in its
pursuit of justice for victims of November 1984, added
According to Jatinder Singh Grewal coordinator SFJ Canada,
since the groups is actively disseminating true facts and
figures regarding November 1984 Sikh Genocide, those who are
being exposed by such dissemination of information are trying
to subvert the outreach efforts so the facts could remain
buried as they have been for the past 27 years.
Since its inception, SFJ has led a number of causes where it
exposed the human rights abuses against Sikhs and lack of
justice to the victims.
