Absconding SFJ Boss Pannun Again Issues Threats
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – Despite India repeatedly flagging the demand for Khalistan — a separate homeland for Sikhs — by a handful of people, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the underground chief of the banned outfit Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), has once again issued threats to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and other top leaders and prominent personalities of the country.
The threats have become more frequent in the wake of the killing of Khalistani separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
In the latest e-mail sent to at least 25 of India’s Who’s Who, the SFJ chief also issued death threats to External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
The other dignitaries include top industrialists, including Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani, along with Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Kangana Ranaut.
The SFJ, believed to be funded by Pakistan’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Chinese agencies, also blamed Congress leaders, including Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Kamal Nath, for the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Other top officials mentioned by Pannun include the Indian High Commissioner to Canada, Sanjay Kumar Verma, and Chief Justice of India, D.Y. Chandrachud.
