The so-called July 8 “Freedom Day” rallies for Khalistan in Melbourne, London, San Francisco, Vancouver, and Toronto passed with little or no notice in the mainstream media.
After threatening the High Commissioner of India in Australia and the Consulate General of India in Melbourne, Khalistani supporters gathered in abysmal numbers outside the Indian Consulate in Melbourne.
Propaganda posters proclaiming “Kill India” over an illustration of a pen piercing a rifle, and featuring photos of India’s top diplomats with a caption identifying them as the “killers” of Mr Nijjar were displayed.
“Faces of Shaheed Nijjar’s killers in Australia.”
Mr Nijjar was shot dead in the parking lot of the Surrey, British Columbia, gurdwara on June 18.
So, did India’s High Commissioner in Australia travel to Canada to join a “death squad” in killing Hardeep Nijjar?
Terry Milewski, an eminent Canadian journalist and the author of “Blood for Blood – Fifty Years of the Global Khalistan Project,” says:
“No, India’s High Commissioner in Melbourne did not take a 26,000-km round trip to British Columbia to join a death squad of his colleagues in killing Hardeep Nijjar.”
He adds that Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) and other similar organizations want “to convince people that Sikhs suffer an ‘ongoing genocide’ in India.”
It doesn’t matter to Khalistan propaganda that the vast majority of the world’s Sikhs live in India – mainly Punjab – and “they see no genocide.”
Terry observes that to keep the propaganda ongoing “India must be painted as a fascist, genocidal hellscape where Sikhs are being wiped out and every Consul is a roaming assassin.”
According to intelligence sources, India’s had enough of the extremist propagnada and holds Canada responsible for the excesses of its Khalistanis. India’s ministry of External Affairs has raised concerns over threats to its diplomats in the posters that are being circulated.
Further, according to Terry, such bonkers propaganda allies are not about “imaginary diplomatic death squads”:
“They’re a bid to whip up anger about India among Sikhs who don’t live there.”
He notes that such threats are the modus operandi of Khalistani extremists:
“They provoke the outside world and, if anyone pushes back, bingo: they’re the defenders of Sikh rights.”
Terry adds that such propaganda posters that highlight Indian diplomats as “killers” should be taken seriously as this can definitely endanger their lives by spreading lies and smear campaigns worldwide.
