Sikhs in UK denounce pro-Khalistan slogans during World Cup matches

Updated:2 years, 12 months ago

London (United Kingdom), July 07: Sikhs living in United Kingdom have categorically denounced pro-Khalistan slogans raised during the ICC World Cup 2019 matches in the United Kingdom. Several videos have gone viral on social media where some Sikhs along with Pakistani fans were seen raising Pakistani and Khalistan flags and shouting Khalistan Zindabad' and Pakistan Zindabad' slogans. It clearly indicates an attempt by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to malign India's image and use sports platform for its political gains. Cricket enthusiasts say that any message with political undertones must not be given entry to the sports arena as it only spoils the atmosphere. The Pakistani spectators, who deliberately made such attempts, had not only drawn criticism from the crowd but International Cricket Council too. Fans believe that politics of this nature which Pakistan believes in damages the spirit of the games and induces animosity and fights. Pakistan is always looking for an opportunity where it can malign India. However, to its disappointment it always gets exposed. In the line of its Break-India policy, Pakistan has for years been fuelling and funding the dead secessionist movement but has gained nothing out of it. It tried influencing the people of Punjab and shifted its target to overseas Sikhs after its diabolic designs didn't resonate with the educated and progressive youth of Punjab.
