An article of journalist Sunny Hundal has gone viral on social media where he highlights the propaganda by India to label Sikhs as terrorists.
“What really worries the Indian government is the prospect of Sikhs in Britain, Canada and the US getting into positions of power and challenging the abuse of Sikh civil rights in India.”
“The problem is this: Indian elite sees any demand by Sikhs for justice over the anti-Sikh pogroms in 1984 as a sign of separatism… But if raising awareness of human rights abuses is a sign of separatism, India may as well condemn all Sikhs.”
