Chandigarh, December 12

Will Ms Damanpal Kaur Anand, widow of an Iranian Sikh, Kultaran Singh, get justice when the trial of the killer of her husband starts in a Tehran criminal court on December 15.

She has been given to understand by her lawyers that since her husband was a Gursikh whereas the perpetrator of the heinous crime, a Muslim, justice may elude her.

Ms Anand has not only sought intervention of the Government of India through the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, but also of the Sikh diaspora worldwide as well as of a Nobel laureate and a human rights lawyer, Mrs Shirein Ebadi.

“Can there be two sets of laws for people belonging to two different religious backgrounds for the same crime in the same country?,â€
