Pro-Khalistan terror outfit, Sikhs For Justice, which played a key role in the violence which became a by-product of the farmers’ protests earlier this year, now in an attempt to increase the members of the fringe group, is attempting to lure people through money and the promise of arranging oxygen for the virus infected patients.
In what can be seen as an attempt to fish in troubled waters, Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) is indulging in “oxygen conspiracy” according to Punjab officials.
Officials have reportedly tracked over two dozen calls from the outlawed organisation where the SFJ can be seen promising Rs 3,000 to Punjab Covid-19 patients in need of oxygen.
According to a recorded phone conversation, the banned outfit can be heard as saying, “The pandemic is spread all over Punjab. Today, on the 35th anniversary of Khalistan Declaration Day, Sikh for Justice (SFJ) announces to provide Rs 3,000 to families whose members need oxygen. Visit www.oxygen4punjab.org and fill in your name and email. If any of your family members need oxygen, SFJ will provide it in 24 hours.”
Reportedly, SFJ’s attempts have borne little fruit as despite making somewhere at least 200-250 random calls, the organisation has not witnessed an increase in members with calls being cut a couple of seconds into the conversation on an average.
According to an officer, “If anyone fills the form, the data is collected and used to show the support his group has from Indians.”
Earlier in January before the Republic Day violence, SFJ had announced a reward of USD 2,50,000 for Punjab farmers hoisting Khalistan flag at India Gate, as well as Red Fort in the national capital.
Terrorist and SFJ Chief Gurpatwant Singh Pannu had back then released a video which said, “26 January is coming and on the Red Fort, there is an Indian tricolour. Remove the tricolour on 26th of January and replace it with the Khalistan flag.”
Besides 2.5 lakh US dollars, Sikhs for Justice also used the bait of giving foreign citizenship to lure the protesters. “The laws of the world are with you. If the Indian Government points a finger at you, you and your families will be brought to the foreign countries under the United Nations laws,” he said.
Reported previously by TFI, National Investigation Agency (NIA) in December, last year found that Sikhs for Justice had been propagating anti-India sentiments within the Sikh community serving in the Indian Army—egging them to engineer a mutiny.
“The Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) has been attempting to undermine the security of the Indian State by instigating Sikh personnel in the Indian army to rise in mutiny against India besides trying to radicalize youths of Kashmir and openly extending support for the secession of Kashmir from India,” the NIA had remarked back then.
