Pakistan’s official song on Kartarpur Corridor features Bhindranwale and other Khalistani terrorists

The Indian intelligence agencies are very much apprehensive about Pakistan’s over-eagerness to open Kartarpur corridor as it provides an opportunity for the terror state to “exploit Sikh sentiments to support Khalistan agenda” in India.

In what seems to be an act to provoke India ahead of the opening of Kartarpur Corridor, Pakistan has featured Khalistani terrorists and anti-Indian elements including Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in its official song to welcome Sikh pilgrims to Kartarpur Sahib. Kartarpur Sahib is believed to be built where Guru Nanak had died.

On Monday, Pakistan’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had released a video of the official Punjabi song welcoming Sikh pilgrims to Pakistan for the Kartarpur Corridor, which displays posters of Khalistani separatist leaders Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Maj Gen Shabeg Singh and Amrik Singh Khalsa in the background.

At around 38 seconds in the video, a poster with Bhindranwale’s image with ‘Referendum 2020’ can be spotted. Bhindranwale was a Khalistani separatist who killed by Indian Armed forces in Operation Bluestar in June 1984 ordered by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Maj Gen Shabeg Singh and Amrik Singh Khalsa were also killed in Operation Bluestar. The posters of pro-Khalistani movement “Referendum 2020” sponsored by the Pakistani establishment can also be seen in the background of the video.

The song has been released ahead of 550th birth anniversary of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev. The song welcomes Sikh pilgrims at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib on the occasion of the opening of Kartarpur corridor and 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

With the terrorist state of Pakistan releasing such videos ahead of the opening of Kartarpur corridor, concerns will be raised against the opening of Kartarpur corridor as Indian Intelligence agencies had accessed information that terrorists being trained near the border district of Narowal in Pakistan’s Punjab province, the same district where Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is situated.

The Indian intelligence agencies are very much apprehensive about Pakistan’s over-eagerness to open Kartarpur corridor as it provides an opportunity for the terror state to “exploit Sikh sentiments to support Khalistan agenda” in India.

The reports of terror camps near the Indian border comes months after a Pakistani spy, part of a larger espionage network, was caught by the military intelligence from Gurdaspur in Punjab. The accused Pakistani spy was sending photographs and information related to the construction of Kartarpur corridor to his handlers in Pakistan through his WhatsApp number raising doubts about Pakistan’s intention to build the corridor.

Earlier, the Chief Minister of Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh had also warned the country about Pakistan’s treacherous plans to use the Kartarpur corridor to inflict terror on India, especially by reviving Khalistani terror. Captain Amarinder Singh had reiterated his position on the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor by Pakistan. He claimed that it is an ISI ploy to strengthen anti-India forces, including the Sikhs For Justice (SFJ).

Meanwhile, supporters of Navjot Singh Sidhu has put up hoardings calling him and Imran Khan the real heroes of Kartarpur. The hoardings were put up by Amritsar Municipal Councillor Harpal Singh Verka who is known to be close to Sidhu.

The hoarding with pictures of Pakistan Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu called them the real heroes who made the opening of Kartarpur corridor a reality. However, the hoardings, which appeared on Tuesday afternoon, were quickly taken down within hours.

Navjot Singh Sidhu was the first Indian politician who received the first invitation card to the opening ceremony bearing number 001 from Imran Khan two days ago. The Punjab government has already permitted him to visit Pakistan on November 9 when the Kartarpur corridor will be formally inaugurated.
