AMRITSAR: The Dal Khalsa is of the strong opinion that yesterday’s events in Amritsar and Canada proves that India’s designated terrorist was respectable and honourable Sikh personality, who has earned international recognition.

Hailing the Canadian House of Commons for observing a moment of silence to commemorate the first anniversary of the assassination of Khalistani activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the pro-freedom Sikh group said it’s a rare gesture as never before in the 40 yrs history of Khalistan struggle any Khalistani protagonist got such a respect and honour by the Parliament of his country.

Dal Khalsa urged Members of Sikh Parliament ie SGPC to convene its general house to honour Shaheed Nijjar on the lines of Canadian parliament.

Pertinently, Dal Khalsa organised a Panthic Samagam yesterday in the city to mark the first death anniversary of Bhai Nijjar who was killed on 18-06-2023 on Canadian soil.

A resolution demanding Nijjar’s picture in Sikh Central Museum and formally according him the status of a quami Martyr by Five Singh Sahibans was adopted in the Samagam which was attended by Akal Takhat Jathedar Gaini Raghbir Singh and SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami.

Significantly, the Jathedar in his address described Nijjar as a martyr of the Sikh cause. The congregation thanked Canadian govt for exposing Indian states complicity in Nijjar’s killing.

Dal Khalsa leader Kanwar Pal Singh commenting on the developments in Amritsar and Canada commemorating one year of Nijjar’s assassination and more specifically Jathedars address said one thing has been proved beyond doubt that India’s designated terrorist is a Sikh Nations respectful freedom fighter.
