  1. And how much did anyone donate to victims of Muslim suicide attacks that killed 20 Sikh politicians in Afghanistan?Or any other attack against Sikhs worldwide?How much were donated to Western victims of Radical Islamic Terrorism,suicide attacks,beheadings etc?They have already collected 10 million through Gofundme and have many oil rich countries donating millions to them.

    Just food for thought.This money is better spent donating to https://ensaaf.org
    Ensaaf is a non profit organization working to end impunity and achieve justice for crimes against humanity in India,with a special focus on Punjab.This non-profit is focused mainly on victims on the 1984 anti-Sikh Genocide sponsored by the Indian Government and perpetrated by violent Hindu mobs and the Indian Army and Police.
