The Right to Kirpan in Quebec sign now

This petition is organized by UNITED SIKHS a U.N. affiliated, international non-profit, non-governmental, humanitarian relief, human development and advocacy organization, aimed at empowering those in need, especially disadvantaged and minority communities across the world. (See www.unitedsikhs.org)

1. We deeply regret the vote by the Quebec National Assembly to ban the wearing of the kirpan, an article of faith that represents the Sikh identity and is worn at all times by initiated Sikh men and women representing their commitment to upholding justice and human rights.

2. We appeal to the People of Quebec, the Quebec National Assembly, and the Members of the Quebec Parliament to uphold the basic human rights as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms by removing this ban on the kirpan.

3. We appeal to the People of Canada, the Members of the Canadian Parliament, the leaders of all faiths, religions and ethnic groups of the world to call upon the Quebec National Assembly and the Members of the Quebec Parliament to uphold the basic human rights as guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms.

4. We also remind Canada of its international obligations to protect minority and religious rights. Canada stands at the forefront of protecting human rights and is an exemplar for the rest of the world. The actions taken by the Quebec National Assembly undermines the rigorous adherence to international human rights norms which Canada has consistently shown. However, Canada must now step forward to meet this challenge.

Please join us in requesting the Quebec National Assembly to respect minority and religious rights by signing the Petition.

1. On regrette profondйment le vote par Assemblйe nationale du Quйbec pour interdire le porter du kirpan, un article de foi important qui reprйsente lidentitй des Sikhs. Le kirpan est portй toujours par les hommes et les femmes qui sont les Sikhs orthodoxes, qui reprйsentent lobligation lhonneur l'engagement а la justice, et les droits humains.

2. On fait appel aux Gens de Quйbec, Assemblйe nationale du Quйbec et les Membres du Parlement de Quйbec pour soutenir les droits humains fondamentaux comme garanti par la Charte Canadienne des droits et libertйs et la Charte de Quйbec de droits et libertйs de la personne par enlevant cette interdiction sur le kirpan.

3. On fait appel aux Gens de Canada, les Membres du Parlement Canadien, les leaders de toutes les fois, les religions et les groupes ethniques du monde pour faire appel au Assemblйe nationale du Quйbec et les Membres du Parlement de Quйbec pour soutenir les droits de lHomme fondamentaux comme garanti par la Charte Canadienne de droits et de libertйs et la Charte de Quйbec de droits et libertйs de la personne.

4. On rappelle au Canada ses obligations internationales pour protйger les minoritйs et les droits religieux. Le Canada est а la pointe de protйger des droits humains et il est un modиle pour le reste du monde. Les actions prises par le Assemblйe nationale du Quйbec minent l'adhйsion rigoureuse aux normes de droits humains internationales que le Canada a montrйs rйguliиrement. Toutefois, le Canada doit marcher maintenant effrontй pour rencontrer ce dйfi.

S'il vous plaоt nous participer demander le Assemblйe nationale du Quйbec pour respecter la minoritй et les droits religieux en signant la pйtition.
