Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has welcomed Canada’s resolution to not recognise the outcomes of the ‘Referendum 2020’ which is organised by Pro-Khalistan group, “Sikhs for Justice” (SFJ).
The Chief Minister is hoping different international locations would comply with Canada’s instance and reject the secessionist ‘Referendum 2020’, which the SFJ was selling to divide India into communal strains.
The Chief Minister was responding to media experiences, quoting a spokesperson, of the Foreign Minister of Canada, which stated: “Canada respects the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of India, and the Government of Canada will not recognise the referendum”.
The Chief Minister stated that the explicit stand taken by the Justin Trudeau authorities on this challenge is exemplary. He hopes different nations and governments ought to come out, and be in opposition to SFJ as properly—which has been banned by India as a terrorist organisation.
The founding father of SFJ, Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, has been declared as a terrorist for actively selling Pakistan-backed terror actions on Indian soil.
The Chief Minister added that failing to oppose the separatist SFJ organisation might set a harmful precedent for any nation, this may very well be seen as covert help to an organisation that will freely be propagating secessionist actions.
This was within the curiosity of worldwide peace and safety to reject forces, which might be hellbent on spreading terror, the Chief Minister added.
Sikhs in Punjab had categorically rejected SFJ’s pro-Khalistan motion, which the outfit was spreading on the behest of Pakistan’s ISI, he concluded.
