New Delhi, Nov 13: Sikh militancy which is a threatening a comeback has a connection to the United Kingdom which has prompted Prime Minster Narendra Modi to raise the issue.
During the talks with Prime Minister of UK, David Cameron, Modi is said to have broached this topic and sought assistance in fighting the problem.
Based on intelligence reports, several radical Sikh groups with the help of the ISI have been furthering their activities. It is said that funds are raised in the UK and then sent to Punjab in a bid to fan Sikh militancy yet again.
Several foundations such as the Miri Puri foundation were set up and it was declared that Khalistan is their primary goal.
The Sikh militant groups appear to be making a big push and have even set up television channels in the UK to spread their propaganda. Modi is likely to seek action against such activities.
Indian officials say that the propaganda spread through such channels have far reaching effects and are aimed at radicalizing the youth as well.
Apart from television channels, there are also reports of a radio channel being run by pro Sikh militant groups. The messages that are sent out through these channels aim not only at radicalizing the youth but also point towards a major fund collection drive.
