Amritsar News: Khalra Mission Opposes Demand For Khalistan


Khalra Mission Opposes Demand For Khalistan

AMRITSAR: The Khalra Mission Organization (KMO), on Friday, opposed the demand for, Khalistan at a function organized to mark the 14th death anniversary of noted human rights activist Jaswant Singh Khalra.
Addressing media persons, KMO patron Dalbir Singh Patarkar said the demand for Khalistan was wrong and the Sikhs should stop raising it. “It is an imitation of Pakistan and should not be encouraged. On the contrary, Sikhs should lay more emphasis on ‘Halimi Haj’, as mentioned in Guru Granth Sahib,” said Patarkar.
He said he was sure that if the demand for Khalistan were fulfilled, the Badals would be at the helm of affairs.
KMO members performed an ‘ardas’ at the Akal Takht to pray for peace to the depart­ ed soul. They said they would hold a convention in Amritsar on the National Human Rights Day on December 10 to raise the demand for dismissal of the Badal government. The KMO is also planning to stage dharnas outside ministers’ houses to press for their resignation.
