New Map of ‘Khalistan’ released by Sikhs for Justice [PICTURES]
The organization was founded and headed by lawyer Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.
Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), a US-based organization that supports the secession of Punjab from India, has released a new map that includes not just Punjab but Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and various districts of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan in Khalistan, which is aimed to be a separate homeland for the Sikh.
The organization was founded and headed by lawyer Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. It was found to put an end to the systematic persecution of the Sikh community in India.
Since 2011, SFJ has been fighting a long peaceful battle against the Indian government and its officials that were involved in the 1984 brutal operations against the Sikhs. It also filed criminal and human rights violation cases against eminent Congress leaders including the then PM Dr. Manmohan Singh, in the US courts.
The organization accused Dr. Manmohan Singh of funding crimes against the Sikh community in India, as he was the finance minister in the 1990s. A report was also submitted to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights regarding the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. In 2019, it started different campaigns for a Punjab independence referendum and the creation of Khalistan which was delayed because of Covid-19.
The MLA of The Punjab Legislative Assembly and the Opposition leader at that time, Sukhpal Singh Khaira, expressed that the Sikh Referendum 2020 was the result of consistent discrimination, persecution, and bias toward the Sikh Community by successive Indian governments. The organization was banned in India in 2019, following the campaign.
The Sikhs For Justice have released a map of their vision of what Khalistan – a free Sikh homeland in India – would entail.

The new map by SJ clearly shows areas that will be a part of Khalistan. Kota, Rajasthan, and far-flung Bundi are also included in it. The organization will be holding a non-binding peaceful referendum to gain support for Khalistan starting from October 31st in London.
Sikhs around the world support the endeavors of the organization which is an indication of minorities feeling threatened in India and wanting to break free from the prejudiced and savage Hindutva regime.
