People in Punjab hail government’s decision of banning ‘Sikhs for Justice’
Ludhiana (Punjab), July 12 (ANI): A large number of people gathered here on Thursday to hail the Centre's decision of declaring 'Sikhs for Justice' as an unlawful association under provision 3(1) of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act 1967. The residents chanted slogans against Khalistan and 'Sikhs for Justice', a pro-Khalistan organisation. They also cherished India's ban for its anti-national activities. The 'Sikh for Justice' organisation has been carrying out anti-India operations from Canada and the United States. It has allegedly been operating with the funds being provided to by Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI (Inter-services Intelligence). In November, Pakistan had even allowed the organisation to open its office Lahore. The SFJ had even declared then that Kartarpur Corridor was a bridge to Khalistan, the separate homeland they have been seeking in the sovereign territory of India. However, after tremendous international pressure, Pakistan disallowed foreign-based pro-Khalistani Sikhs from commencing registration for 'Referendum 2020' in Pakistan. On Thursday, the legal advisor of SFJ, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, while reacting on the ban by the Government of India, said that they will hoist Khalistan flags outside the Indian Consulates in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe on August 15 while India observes its 73rd Independence Day.
