In the march that Khalist. is going to take out on July 8, preparations have been made to target Indian diplomats and embassies.

Exhibitions in London, San Francisco and Vancouver
Khalist. are about to take out rallies in the name of freedom outside the Indian Consulate in Vancouver and Toronto, Canada. The separatist group Sikhs for Justice is helping to fuel the protests. The org.zation is headquartered in Washington and is banned in India. This org.zation has been continuously demanding a separate country in the name of Khalistan for some time now. Khalistan rallies will also be org.zed in London, San Francisco and Melbourne on 8th July. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s home country of Canada is home to some 770,000 Sikhs. In the last census they had declared Sikhism as their original religion. This figure is 2.1 percent of the total population. A small but influential number of these Sikhs supported the idea of Khalistan.
Government’s concern increased
Slogans like ‘Finish India’ and ‘Khalistan Azadi’ are written on the posters put up against the protests by Khalist.s in these countries. Also supporters are encouraged to march towards the Indian Mission. The presence of pictures of India’s top diplomats in these posters doubles the concern. Experts believe that the countries where these demonstrations are taking place should be of great concern as their citizens are also involved in this. The rallies to be held on Saturday have increased the concern of the respective governments. Under international treaties, it is bound to ensure adequate protection of Indian diplomatic interests.
