Khalistani group threatens Modi ahead of his US visit

Chandigarh: Khalistani terror group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) has vowed to give Prime Minister Modi “sleepless nights in America” and planned protests outside the White House during his visit to the United States to attend the Quad Leader’s Summit and the high-level segment of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The terror outfit has cited ‘violence against farmers’ as the reason for staging the protest.

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, General Counsel to SFJ said he would give Prime Minister Modi “sleepless nights in America”.

Sources in the security grid say that “SFJ does not have much traction. Several of their WhatsApp groups have been created for propaganda purposes, with several numbers of Pakistani, mostly ISI agents. Even in the US, they are trying to gather a handful of people to protest against the Prime Minister.”

For several years now, the group has uploaded objectionable content and opened websites on the dark web.

Several of them have been pulled down, as soon as they appeared. They try to lure farmers by announcing monetary rewards or encourage the youth to do anti-India activities with promises of citizenship in foreign countries. The other key strategy is to not give the group any importance but monitor its activities.

Sikhs for Justice was banned on July 10, 2019, by the Government of India under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for anti-India activities on July 10, 2019.

Highly placed sources said, the intelligence grid recently held a meeting in Delhi with top officials from Punjab Police to discuss the issue of SFJ.

Especially since the banned organization is trying to incite the youth of Punjab for subversive activities.
