0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

This petition should be signed by those who believe justice should be served to the women who have come forward regarding sexual assault, grooming, workplace harassment, verbal abuse, abuse of power & molestation by Sukh Sanghera.

Since June 2020, officially eight females have come forward sharing their traumatic experiences of abuse at the hands of Sukh Sanghera .

Sukh Sanghera has been using his influence to groom, prey on & abuse women for his own sexual gratification. This has left all his victims feeling extremely fearful of the consequences that they believe lay ahead.

A number of these women belong to different cities with no connection to each other yet have all experienced the same grooming process and patterns of abuse. As of yet 3 official complaints have been made to the Canadian authorities with little progress. We can not allow the system to fail us. The Punjabi industry has failed these women by ignoring their abuse, and by standing firm with this perpetrator making this culture of sexual harassment/grooming accepted as the norm. Powerful influential people in high places should not be allowed to think they are above the law.

As a society we all collectively hold a responsibility to take a stand against abuse. It’s time to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behaviour and workplace harassment in our industry is over.

The abuse inflicted by Sukh Sanghera on these women has had a detrimental effect on their lives. The impact is so great that many of these women are still engaging in therapeutic support services and seeking support around mental health.

It’s time to take the power away from Sukh Sanghera and give it back to the victims. Do we really want someone like Sukh Sanghera to be recorded in history books as someone to be celebrated or someone to be condemned?
