World Sikh Parliament goes to UNHRC. The Sikh representatives from a number of countries linked to the World Sikh Parliament (WSP) gathered in Geneva to update United Nations officials and member states on the WSP initiative to gain support for the right to self-determination for Sikhs to form an independent homeland called Khalistan.

At the start of the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Sikh leaders arrived in Geneva for the first time to hold talks with the UN officials after communications were exchanged with Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and Vojislav Šuc, the President of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
