    Security around top leaders and vital installations in Indian Punjab has been increased following intelligence reports of Sikh separatist groups trying to recruit youth from the US and India to revive liberation of Khalistan.

    Reports of a meeting between officials and Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) chief Wadhawa Singh in December have raised concerns among security agencies in the state. A top-secret intelligence communication from Punjab Police to security agencies last week states: “To execute this task, Wadhawa Singh is making efforts to mobilise volunteers from Punjab as also from the US, who could be made to travel to India via Malaysia or Singapore.”
    Following this, security agencies have been asked to take appropriate security measures to protect VIPs and important installations across the state. The VIPs said to be in the target list of the terror outfits include Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu.

    Bittu, who is the Punjab Youth Congress president, is the grandson of former state chief minister Beant Singh, who is credited with wiping out Sikh’s in the state in the early 1990s with ’super-cop’ KPS Gill. Beant Singh was assassinated by a human bomb here Aug 31, 1995.

    The intelligence report says that Bittu is particularly being targeted by the Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), Khalistan Liberation Army (KLA). Another intelligence report from Punjab Police has said terror groups could target shrines in Amritsar as well as the Nangal Dam and railway stations at Ropar, Ludhiana and Pathankot.

    “We will not let any of these groups revive terrorism in the state,” Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said in Chandigarh. “We are taking the intelligence inputs quite seriously. We do a day-to-day monitoring of things. Security is being stepped up as required,” Jalandhar Inspector General of Police Sanjiv Kalra said. In the last two months, Punjab Police have found explosives, grenades and weapons outside vital installations at various places in the state. Several kilograms of explosives were found Jan 19 outside an Indian Oil LPG bottling plant near Nabha town in Patiala district. Two grenades were found five days later outside an Indian Air Force (IAF) establishment at Zirakpur near Chandigarh. A car laden with explosives was found last month outside the IAF station at Halwara in Ludhiana. Two people were arrested in Patiala on Sunday. Eight kilograms of explosives and 40 gelatin sticks were recovered from them.

    Though the secessionist movement for Khalistan was absolutely defeated in 1993, there remain a handful of terrorist outfits chiefly supported by NRI Sikh groups who continue to propagate the ideology of Khalistan. One of the most prominent among them is the BKI, among the oldest and most organised Khalistan terrorist groups. It is headed by Wadhawa Singh, who is reportedly hiding in Pakistan. Mehal Singh is the deputy chief of BKI. Both of them are among the 20 terrorists whom India wants. Posted by PakistanFirst.com

    yeah i can see your point but i wonder what has happened in late 80s and early 1990s when this movement were brutally tramped by indian law enforcement agencies? Thousands men, women and children killed in it?

    So why indians at that time gave a **** to this issue?

    Come on colonel look into your chokes.

    Cheers

    Sikh terror outfits seeking volunteers from US, India: Report

    Security around top leaders and vital installations in Punjab has been increased following intelligence reports of Pakistan-based Sikh separatist groups trying to recruit youth from the US and India to revive terrorism in the state.

    Reports of a meeting between officials of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) chief Wadhawa Singh in December has raised concerns among security agencies in the state.

    A top-secret intelligence communication from Punjab Police to security agencies last week states: "To execute this task, Wadhawa Singh is making efforts to mobilise volunteers from Punjab as also from the US, who could be made to travel to India via Malaysia or Singapore." IANS is in possession of the document.

    Security agencies have been asked to take appropriate security measures to protect VIPs and important installations across the state.

    The VIPs said to be in the target list of the terror outfits include Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu.

    Bittu, who is the Punjab Youth Congress president, is the grandson of former state chief minister Beant Singh, who is credited with wiping out terrorism in the state in the early 1990s with 'super-cop' KPS Gill.

    Beant Singh was assassinated by a human bomb in Chandigarh on Aug 31, 1995.

    Perhaps you should look into this. This would save a lot of time & effort.

    http://www.defence.pk/forums/military-history/29965-operation-blue-star-sikh-holocaust-1984-a.html

    BTW, the thread about Khalistan movement "again"....I am still of the opinion that no one in India is in favour of a separate country now.

    What happened to Tamil Nadu and Nagaland??
    You do not have knowledge about Maoist movement.
    Kashmir is a disputed territory per Pakistani POV and integral part from Indian POV. Anyways, it is out of scope of this thread.

    Also now you started eveything just to bash India. The thread is about a particular topic which infact is not existing. For rest (if they exist) there are threads on the forum.

    Canada has the largest Sikh community outside India and I have many friends and having met with many sikhs here I can tell you Khalistan is very much alive in their hearts and minds.


    Many sikhs have portraits of their martyred fellows and leaders of the Blue operation in their homes and have Khalistan engraved on articles of clothing such as their daggars. Heck my Sikh friend wears a steel necklace with two swords and Khalistan engraved on it.

    Only indians living in Mumbai or Shiv Sena's fools paradise wouldn't acknowledge it.

    Well.....I am saying no one in India is supportive to Khalistan issue.

    Many sikhs have portraits of their martyred fellows and leaders of the Blue operation in their homes and have Khalistan engraved on articles of clothing such as their daggars. Heck my Sikh friend wears a steel necklace with two swords and Khalistan engraved on it.

    Canada was involved in this earlier. However now Indian are not interested in this.

    Only indians living in Mumbai or Shiv Sena's fools paradise wouldn't acknowledge it.

    I am not living in Mumbai. I am also not a Shiv Sanik. However I can assure those who say, Khalistan can be created, are themselves living in fool's paradise.

    Denial can be a good temporary escape from reality, but in the long run the blissful ignorance comes back to haunt one's back...

    There are still great many Sikhs in India supportive of the Khalistan movement and eventual separation of the state. The ones i interacted with here are all Indian born/raised immigrants.

    Having said this, the Sikhs havn't forgotten their martyrs nor the sacrifices they made for Khalistan...i know bringing up khalistan doesn't please your eyes or ears, but at least be honest in acknowledging the facts

    If you don't believe me than do yourself a favour and open up Yahoo Chat you'll find plenty of khalistan groups there under India...go ask the sikhs there what the think.

    it's really a no-brainer

    I don't know whether if this movement is going to flourish or not but I am happy to see we have decided to take revenge. Even if Khalistan is not liberated, India will end up having bloody nose and it will suffer from economic disperity. What you sow, so shell you reap.

    No one is denying from the issues. We acknowldge the Maoist/Naxalite etc...as threat but Khalistan....!! No because it is not existant in India.

    It may be possible some guys support this movement. But almost everyone in India does not think in that way.

    And lastly, are you suggesting me to do yahoo chat to get the situation? :what:
