Kashmiri separatists to join forces in pro-Khalistan rally in London

Aug 3, 2018

Sikh for Justice (SFJ) is holding a non-binding referendum throughout the world on the issue of Sikhs’ right of self-determination for the independence of Punjab – the historical homeland of Sikhism.

Besides the overwhelming support of the British and European Sikh community, several Kashmiri separatist outfits have extended their support to a global pro-Khalistan event on August 12 in London.

In a joint press conference that took place in London, Kashmiri freedom-seeking groups have announced that they will be participating in the August 12 event on ‘London Declaration on Referendum 2020’ and reaffirmed their support for the independence of Indian-held Punjab.

While addressing the joint press conference, Naeem Abbasi, Javid Iqbal, Muzmmil Thakur and Armaan Aalim (Barrister) reassured their support of Kashmiri people to the Sikh peoples’ ongoing campaign of Referendum 2020 for Khalistan.

August 2 press conference of World Kashmir Freedom Movement, Kashmir Patriotic Forum International and Overseas Pakistani Welfare Organization was hosted by the UK based known Khalistani activists Paramjeet Singh Pamma whom India unsuccessfully tried to extradite from Portugal on trumped-up charges.

“It is the principle of the right to self-determination and the common occupying power India that brings Sikh and Kashmiri people on a joint platform in their democratic quest for freedom of their homelands”, stated attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, legal advisor to Sikh For Justice (SFJ).

“On August 12, we will unveil the case for Sikhs right to self-determination as guaranteed in UN Charter and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights”, added attorney Pannun.

In furtherance of its campaign for non-binding Referendum 2020, SFJ is holding “London Declaration” on August 12 at Trafalgar Square. The aim of the event is to spread among the world community an awareness about Sikh peoples’ right of self-determination and its endeavours to hold a referendum in Punjab for the realisation of this fundamental political right.
