Toronto, Canada (August 14, 2011): Indians in Toronto celebrated their country’s independence day at Yonge-Dundas Square, Toronto. On the other hand across the street from Yonge-Dundas Square in front of the Eaton Centre, a number of Sikhs and members of a civil rights group called Sikhs for Justice protested against Indian atrocities. The protest called the government of India “undemocratic” and “hypocratic.”
Demonstrators carried signs that wrote: “Stop Burning Churches & Killing Christians in India,” “Sikhs will never forget the attacks made by the Indian army on the Golden Temple and the genocide of the Sikhs in 1984,” and “United Nations should intervene to save lives.”
Prior to Digital Journal’s arrival to the scene, a scuffle between India’s governmental supporters and protestors occurred, according to Demotix News. Toronto police officers appeared and arrested three men who were involved in the fighting.
