UN confirms $10,000 donation from pro-Khalistan outfit
LONDON: The United Nations has received a $10,000 (Rs 7 lakh) “donation” from the pro-Khalistan group Sikhs for Justice, an outfit outlawed by India. SFJ is simultaneously lobbying the UN to set up a “commission of inquiry” to investigate alleged mistreatment of farmer presters.
A spokesperson for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Geneva, told TOI: “We confirm we received a contribution of $ 10,000 on 1 March from an individual representing the Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) group via our online donation function. In general, we do not decline online contributions, unless they are from groups or individuals listed on UN sanctions lists or the organisation/individual is engaged in activities manifestly contrary to the UN Charter or its principles.”
US-based Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who has been designated a te rort by India and is general counsel to the pro-Khalistan SFJ, which is behind Referendum 2020, said a further $1.3 million had been pledged from the Sikh community to establish a UN commission of inquiry (CoI) “to investigate India’s use of violence and sedition charges ag inst presting farmers”.
被印度认定为分子的Gurpatwant Singh Pannun是支持2020年公投的亲哈利斯坦组织SFJ的总法律顾问，身处美国的他表示，锡克教徒社区承诺再提供130万美元，成立一个联合国调查委员会(CoI)，“调查印度对农民使用暴力和对农民煽动骚乱的指控”。
“As of my knowledge the UN has not established the commission. But we are pursuing the matter through the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights,” Pannun said.
CoIs are used to respond to situations of serious violations of international humanitarian law. There is one in place in Syria at present.
it is or was never a Farmer movement. SFJ has more clarified with their actions.
Do whatever u can..go to UN or .. India wont care..
No wonders id*** sitting in Canada and London are using poor people of India to play at their agenda.
Many of the innocent presters now came to know the real motive behind this prest, specifically presters from Haryana and they have returned back to their home in last 1 month.
So UN became beggars
Hand over donors to FBI or Interpol. They are instigating the mob in the dusguise of farm laws
Seal all assets of Pannun in India and of any one who is found close to him contributing for similar vicious agenda in instigating honest hard working Indian farmers just to get milage for their nonsensical movement.
Time for India to give a thick middle finger to UN.
What a waste of money
Sikhs For Justice has no credibility. This is a FAKE Organization sponsored and funded by Pakistan and .
Do anything but Modi should win next ions in 2024.
M R V
UN sold out for a meagre $10000/-!!!
Sikhs dwelling out side India are trying to create panic in India. Their number is few.Other Sikhs should oppose them vehemently as a mark of patriotism.
UN was supposed to curb te rorm be it taliban, isis or Khalistan. UN should be boycotted for accepting donation from te rort organisation
no matter whichever enquiry commission they set up, India will do what is good for India.
It may not be a donation but a under the table money to prome anti India activities.
so UN can initiate enquiry if you pay them.
like police in some places.
Who commited atrocities on 26 January is very clear.
The so called farmers attacked the police ,created chaos, insulted the nation and now dmanding justic in the UN. FUNNY.
