The press conference is organized by New York based human rights advocacy group « Sikhs For Justice » (SFJ) (www.sikhsforjustice.org and www.referendum2020.org).

British female Sikh artist (rapper) Ms. Hard Kaur (Taran Kaur) has been receiving threats of rape and death from Indians through official as well as unofficial channels because Ms. Kaur through her social media posts criticized India and its policies towards rapists. MS. Kaur also supported peaceful and democratic campaign Referendum 2020 seeking to realize Sikh peoples’ right of self-determination as enshrined in UN Charter.

SFJ is a human rights group which believes in and promotes human rights including right of self-determination for all peoples.
