The Liberals have faced a great deal of criticism due to the inaction, failures and the questionable behaviour of a select few MPs and even their Party Leader when it comes to issues of Human Rights and the 1984 Sikh Genocide. However, amongst all the criticism, it is worth mentioning that their does exist a glimmer of hope in the Liberal Party.
The resilience of this individual is commendable, even when all the odds are against him – a true example of courage, dedication and strength. His name is Sukh Dhaliwal.
In the last 2 years Sukh Dhaliwal has single handedly accomplished more than any MP anywhere in the world has when it comes to securing justice for the 1984 Sikh Genocide. Even when his own party (The Liberals) attempted to marginalize him for his dedication to the Genocide Petition – he held firm to his promise as an elected official and represented the thousands that signed it. On June 9/10, Sukh Dhaliwal made history. Sukh Dhaliwal stood in the House of Commons and read a Petition asking the Canadian Government to Recognize 1984 as a Genocide. The Conservatives, of course denied it.
Sukh Dhaliwal’s work however did not stop here. During a recent trip to India, Sukh Dhaliwal fearlessly confronted the Indian Government while issuing a public statement advising the Indian Government to declare 1984 a Genocide.
While traveling India, Sukh Dhaliwal stated “I would love to see the Indian government acknowledge this. You have a very competent PM, who has a credible image on international scene. Even the leader of ruling party has a very positive image. Both of them should come forward and acknowledge this”.
It is with great hope, that the Liberal Party of Canada will see the actions of Sukh Dhaliwal as a guiding light to the path of human rights. With the courage and dedication to human rights of an MP in their midst, Sukh Dhaliwal is the Liberal Parties last beacon of hope.
