There is an allegation of funding some NGOs by pro-Khalistan organizations. The National Investigation Agency team reached Canada on Friday for its investigation. India Today report quoting sources said that a three-member team of NIA has reached Canada on a four-day tour. Pro-Khalistan organizations like Sikhs for Justice are accused of funding some NGOs on their behalf so that they work to create Khalistan. An IG level officer is also included in the team that has reached Canada to investigate the matter.
Apart from Sikhs for Justice, there are organizations like Babbar Khalsa International, Khalistan Zindabad Force, Khalistan Tiger Force on the radar of NIA. These organizations are suspected of getting funding through Canada, the UK, the US, Australia, France and Germany. To investigate this connection, the NIA has taken over the responsibility and in this sequence a team has reached Canada. Earlier this year, an organization named Sikhs for Justice had announced a reward for instigating the farmers agitating along the Delhi border.
There was an attempt to link the Khilstani movement with the farmers’ movement.
Under this announcement, it was said that the person who hoists the flag of Khalistan on the Red Fort on the occasion of 26 January, will be given a reward of 2.5 lakh dollars. Not only this, terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannu, associated with this organization, had also tried to link the farmers’ movement with the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in a video. Let us tell you that even before the farmers’ movement, there were allegations of having international links and there was a controversy over it.
Many people were arrested in the toolkit case
Not only this, the whole matter intensified when many foreign personalities had tweeted in favor of the farmers’ movement. Apart from this, controversy also deepened over a toolkit tweeted by Greta Thunberg. In the case of this toolkit, Delhi Police had also arrested many people.
