The petition was moved by federal MP Warren Enstch yesterday.
Tabling the petition, Enstch said that as long as the 1984 events "continue to be referred to as 'anti-Sikh riots' there can be no closure for the Sikh community."
The petition, with 4,453 signatures, urged the Australian Parliament to recognise the violence against Sikh community in November 1984 as "genocide."
It also called on the Australian government to urge Indian government to take "all reasonable measures" to bring those responsible for the 1984 violence to justice.
It was the first time that the issue had been raised in the Australian Parliament.
Australia's Sikh community had enlisted the help of Entsch to have this country recognise the violence.
Hundreds of Sikhs thronged the Australian capital Canberra yesterday to participate in the event where Enstch, the North Queensland MP, read the petition, according to a media statement issued by Sikhs for Justice group.
Mr. Entch as being of German Prussian origin, should know that 1984 anti Sikh was not Genocide compares to the millions of Jews perished in the Gas chambers of Hitler and his hoodlums. The was an spontaneous act of the common man in the street in mourning for the treacherous and brutal murder of their leader who restored the sanctity o;f the Golden Temple with her blood and saved the country with her blood along with many loyal patriots. Mr Entices sho;uld note there there are 8.5 million Hindus coexisting width the 14 million Sikhs. Mr tenths is understandably is very ignorant of the unique intricate political landscape and cultural diversity of India India.
