Pakistan and India are two
neighboring foes. Pakistan has always tried to become a friendly state towards
neighbors but India’s attitude is vice versa. India always tries to vilify
Pakistan on the international front. It used to blame Pakistan’s security agency
ISI for every terrorism act or for the movements of freedom inside India. Indian
media is supporting its government in this blame game. Recently, Indian Chief of
army staff General Rawat again blames ISI for the Sikh movement named “Khalistan”.
General Rawat revealed that the outfit has its activist in Britain (UK) and the
United States of America (USA). Covertly ISI is supporting Sikhs.
Looking into the history, India represents itself as a secular state but in
reality, India is a Hindu dominating state. In Indian Law, Sikhism is not
considered as a separate religion rather they are considered as Hindus. At the
time of independence and 3 wars against Pakistan, Sikhs remained an integral
part of the Indian army. Later on, Sikhs demanded their born right of religious
independence. Former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi was the first who
used armed forces against Sikhs. On her behalf, Indian army launched a military
operation named “Operation Blue Star” in 1984. On June 3, 1984, Sikhs were
gathered in “Darbar Sahib” to perform their religious rituals. 3rd June is the
most sacred day in Sikhism. This day was selected to do crackdown against Sikhs.
Around 12,000 Sikhs were killed, including women and children. The Gurdwara
“Darbar Sahib” was bombed and the sacred place “Akal Takht” was destroyed. This
event burned a fire in the hearts of Sikh youth. They raised the movement named
“Khalistan movement”. From that date, the movement is continued till now. The
formal Documentation of Declaration of Khalistan was issued on April 29, 1986.
In this declaration, it was mandatory for every Sikh to abide by the declaration
and support Khalistan Cause. At that time, Indian Government blamed Pakistan for
the monetary support and provision of arms to Khalsa Sikhs.
The atrocities of Hindu Brahmans against Sikhs are continued and they have the
complete support of Indian Government. Now the time has changed but the behavior
of the Indian government is still the same.Sikhism is not recognized as a
separate religion from Hinduism. Sikhs like any other religion want their
For this reason, they have started a campaign internationally for
self-determination and separate homeland. They named this campaign as referendum
2020 and requested UN to intervene in this matter. A Pro-Khalistan rally was
organized in the UK by Sikhs for the Justice. This type of rallies and protests
are made not only in the UK but in Canada and US these rallies are made. Pro-Khalistan
slogans are displayed in Amritsar. The Ads regarding Khalistan are displayed on
the busses in the UK. India again accused ISI of supporting among Sikh youth.
A RAW front organization named “A publication of Bureau of Political Research
and Analysis” issued news item captioned “Army Chief (Indian) warns of Pakistan
Plot to Revive Insurgency in Punjab” in November 2018. Moreover, Indian Army
Chief, General Bipin Rawat Stated that attempts are being made through “External
linkages and external abetment to revive insurgency in Assam and Punjab. On the
other hand, Sikhs said there are no insurgencies and they can never forget the
atrocities of the Indian Army in 1984.
Concluding more! Pakistan fully supports Kashmiri and Sikhs on humanitarian
grounds only. Kashmiris and Sikhs are deprived and suppressed minorities of
India.India should review its policy towards minorities. It should give
deserving rights to Muslims, Sikhs and even lower class Hindus. Indian media is
telling the world that Pakistan has planned against India namely “K2” which
stands for two K’s. One is for Kashmir and other is for Khalistan. On the other
hand, Pakistan has forwarded its goodwill towards India by opening the
Kartarpurborder and welcoming Sikh community.
