Khalistani Leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun Continues Anti-India Rhetoric, Blames India for Khalistan Leader’s Death

In a recent interview with an Indian TV news channel, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the leader of the banned terrorist organization Sikh for Justice (SFJ), once again launched a tirade against India and echoed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegations, holding India responsible for the death of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Nijjar was fatally shot in Surrey, Canada, in June 2023. Pannun openly acknowledged that Nijjar had been a close associate for over two decades and described him as a “younger brother.” Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the chief of the Khalistan Tiger Force, was wanted by India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) and faced multiple criminal cases.

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a known Khalistani ideologue, has repeatedly released videos and statements threatening the Indian state and its leaders as he seeks to position himself as a figurehead of the separatist movement. He is believed to be based in New York.

Just days ago, Pannun issued a controversial statement targeting Hindus living in Canada, instructing them to “go back to India.” In his “Leave Canada – Go to India” remarks, Pannun also alleged that the Hindu community in Canada celebrated the death of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Pannun had already been designated as a terrorist by the Union Home Ministry in 2020 under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act of 1967. More recently, the SFJ organized a Khalistan Referendum event at the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey, Canada, on September 10. However, the event witnessed a notably low turnout from members of the Sikh community, falling far short of Pannun’s earlier claims about anticipated attendance.

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun’s ongoing anti-India rhetoric and his accusations regarding Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s death continue to fuel tensions and concerns within the region. The Indian government, along with law enforcement agencies, continues to monitor and respond to such provocations.
