Ottawa (January 17, 2011):  The World Sikh Organization of Canada has written a letter of protest to Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney over government plans to host an Indian politician who was implicated in the massacre of more than 1,000 Muslim citizens in 2002 and was barred from visiting the U.S. in 2005. 

Narendra Modi, 60, is chief minister of Gujarat, India, a state of 60 million with a mostly Hindu population, and a Muslim minority of about 9 per cent.  Gujarat is a leader in oil and gas production and welcomes many large foreign investors including DuPont, Shell, and General Motors. It is known for approving environmental permits quickly.

SURREY – July was such a big month as far as celebrations go.

As a Sikh Canadian, who was born in a Toronto suburb, roots for the Leafs, did law at the University of Ottawa, and works for a human rights organization, I'm astounded to hear claims from politicians that so-called "Sikh extremism" in on the rise.
