Charity Khalsa Diwan Afghanistan started this petition to UK Parliament and

UK Government should recognise Sikh & Hindu minorities in Afghanistan as persecuted, oppressed and under serious threat to life and limb.

The oldest inhabitants of Afghanistan the Sikhs and Hindus are being forced to flee their country, their properties and wealth being confiscated by powerful war lords and fundamentalist forces. Their children are kept out of the mainstream of education. They cannot even cremate their dead with dignity.  This systematic persecution is driving them out of Afghanistan.

On 1st of July 2018 a delegation of Afghan Sikhs and Hindus on their way to meet the President Ashraf Ghani to submit a Memorandum and discuss their problems was targeted by suicide bombing killing the entire Sikh leadership in Afghanistan. 19 persons including the only candidate for Afghan parliamentary elections Mr. Awtar Singh Khalsa were killed.

A UK based Sikh Charity submits this petition to UK Parliament and requests your Support in getting there. Please Be the Voice of oppressed.  Please sign this petition.
