NEW DELHI: Banned Khalistani separatist group ‘Sikhs For Justice’ (SFJ) has threatened to remove India’s tallest national flag at Attari along the India-Pakistan border with the so-called Khalistan flag on August 15, Independence Day.
In a statement, SFJ chief Gurpatwant Singh Pannun said that his organisation will start the Ghar Ghar Khalistan campaign in response to the government of India’s Har Ghar Tiranga.
“15th August is the launching of the Ghar Ghar Khalistan campaign, which will continue till 26th January, when the Khalistan Referendum voting will be launched in Punjab,” he said.
Meanwhile, several videos circulating on social media show a Pakistan-based terror organisation’s support for the so-called Khalistan movement.
In one of the videos, a veiled woman, who identified herself as a ‘Kashmiri Mujahid’, vows support for the Khalistanis and calls for the removal of the Tricolour at the Attari border.
The video features footage of farm law protesters hoisting a ‘Nishan Sahib’, the sacred flag for the Sikh community, at the Red Fort on January 26 last year.
“Kashmiri mujahideen stand shoulder to shoulder with our Khalistani brothers and sisters,” the woman says in the video.
Earlier in May this year, SFJ claimed responsibility for the act of putting up Khalistani flags and making graffiti at the entrance of the Vidhan Sabha complex in Dharamshala.
