Two cases of lynching within two days. Interestingly, both the cases occurred for allegedly disrespecting Sikhism. Though it is evident that it is not just a co-incidence, the Khalistani lobby’s efforts to portray these incidents as a Hindu terror act has now revealed the Khalistani agenda behind it.
Lynching for hurting religious sentiments of Sikhs
On the 18th of December, a man was lynched in Amritsar for attempted sacrilege at Amritsar’s Golden Temple. In relation to the Amritsar case, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa reported that “He attempted murder by picking up the sword in front of Guru Granth Sahib at 5.50 pm and desecrated the cloth used to cover the holy book.”
“The accused had entered the premises of Harimander Sahib (Golden Temple) alone at around 11.40 am on Saturday. He slept outside Akal Takht Sahib during his stay inside the premises before committing sacrilege. There must be something behind this incident… we will investigate further. So far, he has not been identified. We have been tracing his movement through the streets of Amritsar,” said Randhawa.
A day after the incident, another unidentified man was beaten to death by locals at Nizampur in Punjab’s Kapurthala district for allegedly disrespecting the ‘Nishan Sahib’. Gurdwara manager Amarjit Singh alleged that the man was trying to desecrate the Nishan Sahib, a religious flag, and he was sent by someone from Delhi.’ A local resident reported, “The youth had prepared tea and had a meal in the gurdwara last night. He was from Gopalganj district of Bihar.”
Meanwhile, the police have conducted a probe into the matter as they suspect “a larger conspiracy” ahead of the 2022 elections.
British MP Preet Gill’s agenda revealed
While these attempts are being carried out to disturb the harmony between, a few Khalistani elements are fueling the situation.
A screenshot shared by Journalist Rahul Pandita on Twitter shows Khalistani sympathizer British MP Preet Gill portraying the incident as a Hindu terror act. The British MP had tweeted, “Hindu terrorist prevented from an act of violence at the Sikh holy shrine of Harminder Sahib, (Golden Temple against Sikhs).
However, Preet has now deleted the tweet.

Khalistani agenda and ISI
It is now a well-established fact that a huge section of immigrant Punjabis openly supports Khalistani terror outfits like Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), Babbar Khalsa International, Khalistan Zindabad Force and Khalistan Tiger Force. These Khalistani elements had tried their level best to stoke communal tension between Sikhs and Hindus in the wake of farmers protests.
The SFJ is headed by Avtar Singh Pannun and Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. It has the backing of Pakistan’s notorious ISI. The terror group had also written a letter against India to Chinese President Xi Jinping in the wake of the Galwan Valley showdown, where it condemned the ‘Modi government’s violent aggression against China’.
Earlier this year when the farmers protesting against the central farm laws organised a march to Delhi on Republic Day, the SFJ is learnt to have announced a Rs 1.85 crore reward for anyone hoisting a Khalistani flag atop the India Gate.
Nearing the Punjab Assembly elections 2022, the politicians or anti-national groups are attempting to stoke fear among the masses. The modus operandi of lynching incidents and political outrage against it is now being used to destroy communal harmony in India.
