Dr. Awatar Singh Sekhon a lifelong human rights activist and a prolific writer has written several books focusing on Sikh history. Dr. Awatar Singh Sekhon has been tirelessly speaking at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland since 1999, on the issue of human right violations against Sikhs and other minorities in India. He has been invited and presented his views at the United Nations Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland over 60 times in the last 20 plus years.
Dr. A.S.Sekhon and Kavneet Singh have edited and just published an insightful book, ‘25 Years After the 1984 Assault on Darbar Sahib: Laying the Foundation of the Sikh Nation’. It is available on www.amazon.com in print and kindle.
Kavneet Singh also a passionate human rights activist has co-authored, compiled and published several books in the past. https://americansikhcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/books-published-in-the-us-without-book-covers.pdf He is the co-editing author of the above book.
Both authors have spent over two decades writing and curating the history and mass human rights violations by the Indian regime on the Sikhs. Unless and until accurate information is collected, and saved on the victimized Sikhs, all the evidence and content are being feverishly erased from schools, colleges, general academia, in mass media, etc., so that the next generation has no recollection of the atrocities committed by the successive ruling Hindu regimes. Sikhs today have been made politically impotent and are at a crossroads, trying to figure out their future in Punjab, South Asia.
This particular book ‘25 Years After the 1984 Assault on Darbar Sahib: Laying the Foundation of the Sikh Nation’ covers the more recent aftermath and outcomes twenty years after the ill-conceived, illegal and unconstitutional attack by the Indian regime on the holiest religious site of the Sikhs, the holy Darbar Sahib in Amritsar, Punjab, South Asia.
The book delves into the various issues which are and have primarily been economic in nature affecting the Sikhs of Punjab very acutely, yet the various successive ruling Hindu regimes at the center have always had a deep-seated bias against helping rectify any inconsistencies which would bring back equity and parity with the rest of the various Indian states all supposedly united under the ‘Republic of India’.
