NEW YORK: While President Obama will be laying red carpet for the Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi at the White House, a Citizens Court convened by human rights group “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ) will hold indictment proceedings against him.
The proceedings before Citizens Court will be telecast live throughout the United States by the Sikh rights group, SFJ said in a press statement.
The indictment proceedings will be conducted in a replica court room set up in the President’s Park right in the front of the White House.
The charge sheet issued by SFJ lists actions of Modi during 2002 massacre of Muslims, which constitute federal offenses under several provisions of the United States Code.
To publicize Modi’s indictment proceedings, the rights group has launched an advocacy campaign by renting dioramas at several Metro stops of Washington DC.
