New Delhi: The outlawed pro-Khalistan group ‘Sikhs for Justice’(SFJ) was planning to revive militancy in Punjab apart from promoting anti-India activities.
The outfit was banned by India recently. Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has lauded the effort of Indian government in this connection.He said the outfit should be treated as a “terrorist organisation”.
Media reports said Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, legal advisor to SFJ, had written to Chinese ambassador in Pakistan for revival of militancy in Punjab. The outfit has links with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the media reports said.
The US-based SFJ has organised anti-India rallies in UK and Canada. Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had accused the organisation of unleashing terrorism in the state.
According to reports, Pannun had claimed that he attended the US Independence Day mega-event as a special guest of the White House. His claim comes after the Centre banned the pro-Khalistan group.
