New Delhi: Banned pro-Khalistan group, Sikhs for Justice, or SFJ, has threatened to “storm and target” New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport with Khalistan flags during the upcoming G20 Foreign Ministers Summit in India’s capital.

The announcement was made by SFJ founder Gurpatwant Singh Pannun in a video message on Monday.

The clip that has now gone viral on social media shows ‘Punjab is Not India’ and ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ slogans written by the banned pro-Khalistan group at Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Office Complex of Bagha Purana and Rode village of Moga district in northern Indian state of Punjab.

Rode is the native village of slain Khalistan separatist and terrorist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

Graffiti aimed to communicate to G20 foreign ministers

Pannun in the video further said the graffiti is aimed to communicate to the foreign ministers of G20 countries that “Punjab is not a part of India”.

“This message is for the G20 foreign ministers. Punjab is not India. SFJ will storm and target the New Delhi Airport with Khalistan flags,” he said.

“Now is the time that you (G20 foreign ministers) support the Khalistan referendum. You support the Sikh’s rights to self-determination and you do not recognise India’s territorial integrity because India is not a country but a union of states with a condition. If people do not want to stay with that union they have the right to vote,” said Pannun.

The incident comes barely within a week after a police station at Ajnala near Amritsar was attacked on 23 February. The "action" was led by Amritpal Singh, who is a Khalistan sympathiser.

Dubai-returned Singh was recently anointed the head of 'Waris Punjab De', the organisation founded by actor and activist Deep Sidhu who died in a road accident last year.

Claimed to be a follower of Bhinderwale, Singh made some controversial speeches during the past few weeks.
