Few Sikhs has designed new map of Khalistan and it look closer to the Pakistan border. Many in India may not have heard of Referendum-2020, being planned by US-based radical group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) in support of a separate state of Khalistan, but the Punjabi diaspora is seized of the matter and already divided on it.
“Where are they building Khalistan?” is the question members of the diaspora ask in the US when the issue of referendum is raised. “We are building it surely,” replies SFJ legal adviser Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, without answering where or when.
It’s an interesting situation developing here. The word Khalistan has the Sikh community divided and united at the same time. Most gurdwaras in the US have started a campaign for the referendum. But many members of the community term it an impractical idea.
