Even as the ongoing farmers’ protests at the borders of Delhi show no signs of abating, the Modi government is convinced that vested interest groups, political parties and separatist elements have managed to hijack the agitation of the farmers from Punjab and Haryana. To the same effect, the Ministry of Home Affairs, led by Union Home Minister Amit Shah is all set to launch a massive crackdown on separatist elements, particularly those who are working towards creating a public opinion and narrative in favour of Khalistan.
As per a report by Zee News, the decision in this regard has been taken by the Amit Shah-led Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in view of reports received from the Punjab Police and state and central intelligence agencies. The Home Ministry wants to initiate a massive probe into the alleged foreign funding to the pro-Khalistan outfits and their sympathisers and various NGOs linked to them. Various central agencies like the CBI, ED, NIA, FIU and Income Tax Department are poised to be a part of the massive crackdown on various NGO’s, Khalistani outfits, and their foreign paymasters.
The crackdown will be on the pro-Khalistani activities, anti-India groups like Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), Babbar Khalsa International, Khalistan Zindabad Force, Khalistan Tiger Force, and many more. The central agencies will particularly work to put an end to the foreign funding of such banned outfits, leading them to die a financially dry death. They will probe foreign funding received by the pro-Khalistani outfits from the UK, Canada, USA, Australia, France and Germany in the recent past.
The report added that Home Minister Amit Shah and the Modi government are looking to foil Pakistan’s plan of K2 (Khalistan-Kashmir). To the same effect, sources have indicated that the crackdown on Khalistani forces in India, and perhaps abroad too, would be similar to that of Kashmiri terrorists and Pakistan-backed terror outfits. The farmers’ protests have reminded the government that it has to work overtime to foil all nefarious international designs to reinvigorate the Khalistan bogey within India once again.

Essentially, the Amit Shah-led Home Ministry is all set to demolish the Khalistani network within and outside of India by launching an octahedral crackdown against it. TFI has already reported how the farmers’ protest has become a ground for Khalistanis to flex their muscles by showcasing their abilities to fool the ordinary farmers of Punjab. In line with the same, one can now see posters galore of separatist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in the protests. Additionally, alleged farmers were also seen issuing threats to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The MHA led by Home Minister Amit Shah has upped up its game against the Khalistanis just at the right time, and needless to say, for such separatist elements to evade the massive crackdown coming their way would be a near impossibility.
octahedral – nice use of word….
