Nijjar’s killing sows panic among Khalistani groups across the world

The elimination of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada has triggered a wave of fear in Khalistani radical groups across the globe.

With a third Khalistani hot shot dying in the span of around a month, the radical separatists are not just mourning but scared for life crying hoarse about Indian agencies being allegedly on an elimination spree.

With panic writ large, the Khalistani sympathiser World Sikh Organisation issued a statement saying, “The assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar is gravely alarming for Sikhs in Canada. Nijjar openly and repeatedly stated that he would be targeted by Indian intelligence and this was made known to CSIS and law enforcement. CSIS has known that Nijjar faced an imminent threat to his life for months. The fact that he was assassinated in this manner is a failure of these bodies to provide protection to someone they knew would be targeted”.

The high-profile killing of Nijjar, who was designated as Canada-based chief of pro-Khalistani outfit Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF), came three days after another UK-based outfit Khalistan Liberation Force chief Avtar Singh Khanda who died under mysterious circumstances in a hospital in Birmingham city. While preliminary investigations by Canadian agencies hints at Nijjar killing being an outcome of rivalry, UK authorities announced Khanda died owing to oncological complications while his supporters alleged he was poisoned. Khanda, who is believed to have trained Khalistani separatist, now jailed, Waris Punjab De chief Amritpal Singh after the death of Deep Sidhu, was the face of the protests at the Indian High Commission in London. Similarly Nijjar was on the forefront of vandalisation of the Canadian high commission in March. He was also in lead in the recent tableau parade which celebrated assassination of former PM Indira Gandhi.

Last month, wanted terrorist in India and Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) chief Paramjit Singh Panjwar, 63, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen near his residence in Pakistan. Highly placed sources reveal that the deaths have led to major ripples in banned Khalistani organisation Sikhs for Justice as its supremo Gurpatwant Singh Panun is publicising himself as next and biggest target. The outfit, according to reports, has asked all senior commanders to step up security and be extra careful. The outfit has increased the inflow of IVR calls and is working to snowball protests against Nijjar into major controversy.

Though both NIA and Indian agencies have not issued any official statement so far, their strong stance against the Khalistani terrorists post Amritpal crackdown has won them many fans across the world. For the first time ever NIA is probing attacks on Indian diplomatic facilities on foreign soils. While India has diplomatically been asking US, Canada, UK and Australia to curtail Khalistani acts against India to little avail, the NIA has now stepped in to probe the attacks.

Responding to the killing, Major Gaurav Arya (retd), Editor in Chief of Chanakya Forum, tweeted, “Khalistanis are dropping like flies.” In another tweet, he wrote: “When you protest outside our High Commission or Embassy, you stand against the government. When you take down our national flag, you stand against 1.4 billion Indians. There is no forgiveness for desecration of the tricolour. This is India’s red line, our collective Rubicon. We are peaceful, not harmless.”

Meanwhile a video of different Hindu religious sites across Toronto, Canada are going viral where posters of Khalistani terrorist Talwinder Singh Parmar were placed. Parmar was involved in Air India Flight 182 bombing. There is also a call for a car rally against Air India’s 1986 Kanishka bombing.
