Pakistan openly facilitating Khalistani separatists


ANI Others
Pakistan has openly started facilitating Khalistan separatists by pumping in millions of dollars to revive the anti-India movement following their futile attempts at propagating anti-India sentiments in the West.
During the Pakistan Day celebrations held at the Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canadian Senator Salman Attaullahjan of Pakistani origin invited prominent proponent of Khalistan, Sukhminder Singh Hansra.
Hansra, who openly advocates for Khalistan and is a leading figure in the separatist movement in Canada, was provided with a platform to spew venom against India.
Praising Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Hansra openly thanked Islamabad for supporting their satanic movement, which has seen zero support from the Sikhs living world over.
Hansra said, "Imran Khan has brought a way of Politics," while relentlessly criticising Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
While Hansra's presence at the event irked the Indo-Canadian community, Pakistan, on the other hand, has been relentless in supporting and facilitating the anti-India movement.
Islamabad's notorious spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), does not only provide funds to the pro-Khalistan organisations but also gives access to their land to carry out their anti-India movement.
Sikhs For Justice, a Pro-Khalistan advocacy group running a secessionist campaign to hold Referendum to liberate Punjab from India, recently announced to start registration for "Team 2020" from Gurdwara Panja Sahib in Hasan Abdal city in Pakstan, where thousands of Sikh pilgrims from Punjab and across the world will be visiting to pay obeisance during the 320th Khalsa Sajna Divas.
Pakistan has also provided land to 'Sikhs For Justice' to open their permanent office in Lahore to facilitate the pro-Khalistan votes. Although Sikhs in India as well as abroad have outrightly rejected their satanic movement, desperation has only been growing in the pro-Khalistan camps.
