Pakistani intelligence agency ISI funding pro-Khalistan groups in India and abroad

New Delhi: Pakistan is once again trying to foment trouble in India and this time its intelligence agency ISI is helping pro-Khalistan Sikhs in India and abroad. Sources say the ISI is actively helping Sikh radical organisations like Babbar Khalsa and other groups based in US, UK, Canada and Germany in its bid to revive the terror groups, sources said.

The Sikh groups have been asked to contact Kashmiris and Pakistanis for anti-India protests. According to the sources, the arrest of Khalistan Tiger Force chief Jagtar Singh Tara in January 2015 in Thailand had exposed ISI's role. Tara's questioning had revealed the role of ISI-backed terror syndicate in Thailand. He is accused in the assassination of former Punjab chief minister Beant Singh and has fled from Punjab's Chandigarh's Burail Model jail in January 2004.

Some pro-Khalistan protests pro-Khalistan took place in London, San Francisco and Brampton, Canada on June 7. They are planning a protest in Pakistan on June 16, sources added.

On June 6 a clash took place inside Golden Temple when a group of youths raised pro-Khalistan slogans in connection with the 31st anniversary of Operation Bluestar. Some protests also took place in Jammu and Kashmir over removal of a poster carrying the picture of Khalistani terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale.

Bhindranwale had led the movement for Khalistan’s creation and along with several hundred heavily armed terrorists had taken shelter inside Golden Temple in Amritsar. He and several of his supporters were killed in an Indian Army operation in 1984 during which Golden Temple complex suffered massive damage.

ISI has been supporting several anti-India groups and is involved in instigating terror organizations in Jammu and Kashmir.
