Pakistan-backed Khalistanis attack British Indians gathered outside Indian High Commission

Khalistanis backed by Pakistan’s ISI attacked British Indians who were gathered outside the Indian Embassy in London.

London, March 10, 2019 —

Pakistan’s ISI backed Khalistanis attacked a number of British Indians who were standing outside the Indian High Commission in London on March 9. Overseas Pakistanis Welfare Council (OPWC) and Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) were blamed for the attack on rival demonstrators from Friends of India Society, UK, who had gathered outside the Indian High Commission in London on Saturday.

The fight broke out when UK-based Kashmiri and pro-Khalistan outfits started chanting anti-India slogans to counter protesters chanting pro-Modi slogans, reported ToI. In the video, men wearing Sikh turbans can be seen raising slogans “Naraa-e-Taqbeer” and “Allah-u-Akbar”.

As per the Scotland Yard, one man was arrested for “breach of peace” and was later “de-arrested” with no charges.

OPWC and SFJ had organised a protest rally against “atrocities on ethnic minorities in India”.

As per media reports, it is alleged that US-based pro-Khalistan organisation SFJ receives funding and support from Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The group has been carrying out anti-India campaign ‘Referendum 2020’ all over the world but so far it has failed to garner popular support from the Sikh diaspora.

In a letter to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan SFJ urged Islamabad to “politically support Referendum 2020 movement to liberate Punjab” so that “1971 fall of Dhaka” can be avenged.

After the terror attack in South Kashmir’s Pulwama, British Indians had organised several protests against Pakistan and chanted ‘Pakistan murdabad’ outside the Pakistan High Commission in London.

There is no doubt that Pakistani deep state is covertly trying to revive the Khalistan movement and as per media reports, the government is aware of ISI’s connection with Sikh radicals in the US, Canada, UK and Australia.
