UPDATE: Online version of the article has also been amended!
The Sikh community and activists have succeeded in one of many struggles in the effort to Save Bhullar from judicial murder in India. The Toronto Star has removed the word “Sikh Terrorist” from the printed version of its story on Professor Bhullar.
After holding a rally in Toronto with hundreds of participants, the Sikh community was stunned when an article was published online by the The Toronto Star titled “Wife lobbies to save convicted Sikh terrorist“.
Concerned about the implications of a such term for the community at large, the Sikh youth immediately mobilized an email campaign. Hours before the article went to print hundreds sent emails asking The Star to reconsider their title before it was distributed to thousands the following day.
In an amazing show of solidarity, in just a matter of minutes, Twitter and Facebook were swarmed with status updates to take action. In an inspiring and unprecedented effort was shown by Sikh youth nation wide.
A congratulations is due for all those participated, we encourage you stay involved as we continue to the campaign to save an innocent man from death.
