A New York based Sikh advocacy and rights group website has been hacked.  The group is convinced that the server hacking was well-coordinated by a certain group who has attempted to target the Sikh community.


The group, Sikh for Justice (SFJ) has been previously and presently active in legal activity in court. The group has filed a complaint against the Congress Party and its leader Kamal Nath with relation to the 1984 Sikh riots. Sikhs for Justice also recently filed a complaint with the regulator Federal Communications Commission against Jay Leno who made offensive remarks about the Golden Temple.


Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, attorney for the SFJ stated that the recent hacking of the SFJ server was done by certain quarters that have intended to silence the Sikh community from filing such complaints. According to him, it was done because “some people” are not happy with the world media attention the Sikh community is getting.


A written complaint has been filed and sent to a unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in charge of taking care of Internet related crimes. The community hopes that its complaints are taken seriously and that they can move forward with preserving justice that they hope to have, as does any other community.
