India request to ban Khalistan event in London in vain

The #Khalistanmovement seems to be reviving in #Canada & #Greatbritain.

India government’s demand seeking a ban on a pro-Khalistan group planning to issue a “London Declaration” for a “referendum” on Punjab’s independence from India at Trafalgar Square on August 12.

US-based group called “Sikhs for Justice” is preparing for the event in Trafalgar Square and it’s understood the group has support of many Sikh groups in the UK. ‘Sikhs for Justice’ held a press conference in Southall, London, and announced its plans of “referendum” with the pledge that it will continue to highlight the case of a separate Sikh homeland.

Sunday in Trafalgar Square has caused a diplomatic rift between the British and Indian governments, with India lodging a formal protest with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Indian government wrote to the British government that a minority of Sikh hardliners are exploiting free-speech laws in Britain to call for the creation of a separatist state known as “Khalistan”.
