On June 06 of this year during the anniversary of the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Singh as well as that of Operation Bluestar in the Golden Temple once again the shouts for Khalistan came up. Akali leader Simranjit Singh Mann and Jagjit Singh Chauhan lead the procession of separatists who captured the stand and started demanding for the independent state of khalistan. We also had the bomb blasts in Delhi which are now being attributed to the Babbar Khalsa International (BKI). Weave them together there is the danger of khalistan movement starting up again.
Golden Temple – Demand for the Khalistan Movement
So where are we at present?
What will happen if the khalistan movement raises its head again. The militancy in Punjab may again come to the forefront. With friendly enemies all round us.
The Panthic Times
The biggest problem however is that is khalistan the view of the majority of the people in Punjab or just some random separatists. Interesting to note however the demand for the separate state dies out as soon as the political party dedicated to its formation comes to power. I mean the Akali Dal of course.
