Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, founder of Sikhs for Justice, has exhorted Kashmiris to block prime minister Narendra Modi from hoisting the national flag on January. Not just that, in a video, he has also exhorted them to unfurl the Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir flag in Delhi.
In a bizarre, outrageous video, Pannu is heard saying:
“Now is the time people of Kashmir, you should reach Delhi. Block PM Modi from hoisting the tricolour. Just as the Sikh community will unfurl the Khalistani flags, you should unfurl the flag of Kashmir in Delhi. You are getting killed in fake encounters in Baramulla, Shopian, Anantnag every day and nobody knows in the world. When you reach Delhi on January 26, the entire world will watch that Kashmir and Sikhs wants freedom.”
Since PM Modi’s security breach in Punjab on January 5, Supreme Court lawyers have received at least five threat calls. Moreover, Pannu has announced a $1 million reward to block PM Modi and raise the Khalistan flag instead of the tricolour in Delhi on Republic Day. He has also threatened to not allow retired SC judge Indu Malhotra to proceed with the inquiry into the security lapses.
Meanwhile, SC lawyer Vineet Jindal filed a complaint against the SFJ founder with the Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana and the Cyber police. He stressed that his statements and acts challenge the sovereignty and unity of India and are an attempt to wage war amongst different communities and states. Additionally, he contended that Pannu has dishonoured the pride of Republic Day which is celebrated in our country with great zeal and enthusiasm.
