Another flop show by Khalistanis in London. Despite massive campaigns on social media and Sikh habitats, just over 2000 people voted in London… A special report by Asian Lite News

Despite massive campaigns on social media and Sikh habitats, just over 2000 people from the 500,000 plus Sikh community participated in the Khalistan referendum organised by the Sikhs for Justice in London.

The Khalistan referendum, which was held at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on Sunday, failed to invoke any interest in the local community. The organisers were expecting a turn-out of 20,000.

SFJ leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun told Pakistan based Geo News that they will conduct similar referendums in other European countries like Switzerland. SFJ is planning referendums in Australia and North America too.

When asked about the resources to book an expensive venue like Elizabeth Hall, Pannun claimed the event was organised through volunteers and donations.

SFJ, a banned organisation in India, has released a map of the areas marked for secession from India. Declaring Shimla as the Capital of Independent Punjab, SFJ’s map encompasses the areas of pre-1966 Punjab, which includes Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Sikh majority areas of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. However, SFJ’s map conspicuously excludes the Punjab province of Pakistan, where Sri Nankana Sahib, Sri Panja Sahib and Sri Kartarpur Sahib are located, from the Khalistan Referendum and it would not form part of an independent Punjab state.
