Indians Abroad Bravely Face Khalistani Challenges Despite Threats

In spite of countless threats, Indian communities in Australia, the UK, the United States, Canada, and Germany have formed a unified front and shown incredible bravery in their confrontation of the Pakistan-backed Khalistani extremists.

Indians who live abroad demonstrate amazing tenacity in combating these fringe organizations that attack Hindu leaders and sites of worship while deliberately sowing enmity between Sikhs and Hindus in the face of continuous threats from Khalistani extremists and their sympathizers.

With cooperation from Pakistan’s intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Khalistani elements have launched a hate-filled campaign against the Indian diaspora living in Australia, the UK, the US, Canada, and Germany.

The Indo-Canadian Workers’ Association of Canada recently adopted a stern stance against fundamentalist and communal groups in cooperation with the Punjabi community. The permission for an upcoming Khalistan referendum event set for September 10 at Tamanawis Secondary School in Surrey, British Columbia, was revoked by Canadian officials as a result of this audacious action.

The Australian Hindu Association Inc. (AHA) and other groups have actively battled pro-Khalistani radicalism in Australia. They are assiduously striving to highlight the wrongdoings of these outlaw groups while fostering communal unity within Indian communities.

Due to the AHA’s intervention, Indian companies stopped sponsoring Khalistani events in Australia. Local businesses like GR8 Indian Street Food, Dosa Hut, and Kulcha Kulture were forced to stop sponsoring an event that Tarsem Kassar was hosting in Brisbane on August 12 as a result of this proactive approach.

Previously, when extreme forces flew Khalistani flags in Griffith, Indian businessmen turned down the opportunity to finance the event. Following numerous rejections, the Khalistanis and the outlawed terrorist organization Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) called off their pretended referendum.

In opposition to pro-Khalistani extremism, Punjabi expats have simultaneously expressed their displeasure of the unrest and enmity spread by ISI-backed Khalistani terrorists. They have openly denounced Gurpatwant Singh Pannun and his adherents’ behavior.

Asserting that their acts go against the interests of Sikhs and defame their nation for immigration reasons, Joginder Bassi has challenged the Khalistanis to organize a referendum in Punjab rather than abroad.

There are claims that many Khalistani organizations and political parties are contacting the governments of Canada, the US, and other countries to request asylum for criminals and terrorists from the Khalistan region who are supported by the ISI.

Prominent individuals have spoken out against the Khalistanis, seeking openness and the truth about Khalistan. Examples include Canadian-born Punjabi musician and activist Nancy Grewal, writer Amar S Padda, and US-based Sikh scholar Sukhi Chahal.

The UK government has announced a significant funding allocation of £95,000 (roughly Rs 1 crore) to strengthen its capacity to combat pro-Khalistan extremism, while some nations have been hesitant to take action against pro-Khalistani extremists responsible for the vandalism of Hindu temples and statues of Indian leaders.

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who is now attending the G20 conference in Delhi, made it clear that “no form of violence or extremism” will be accepted in his country in a thundering statement denouncing Khalistani groups.
