Amritsar, August 14

A group of young Sikhs, holding tricolors, waved slogans in support of India in Khankot, the ancestral village of Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, legal adviser to Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), today.

Khankot village is located on the outskirts of the holy city, on the Amritsar-Jalandhar road.

On Saturday, SFJ activists hoisted a saffron flag with “Khalistan” written on it in Rode, the ancestral village of the late Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

In a video that surfaced on Sunday, a group of young people could be seen waving the national flag. Among them was a youngster, who was watching in his early teens, speaking in Punjabi. Without naming anyone, he said, “some people residing abroad defame the Sikh community for their personal interests and provoke the youth. Their action brings discredit on the community. The Sikhs have made immense sacrifices to liberate India from foreign rule and we want to maintain its integrity and sovereignty.

Two days ago, the Indian flag was hoisted at the Chandigarh residence of Pannu by a Congress leader.

  • SGPC chairman Harjinder Singh Dhami said if the video was shot on the premises of a gurdwara, it amounted to a violation of the Sikh code of conduct. “We castigate this conduct and will share our dissatisfaction with the PSGPC”
