“I am a Sikh nationalist who believes in and supports Sikhs’ right to self-determination and independence of Indian occupied Punjab through a future referendum”. “My Sikh nationalist activities are peaceful, democratic and protected under the Canadian charter of Rights and Freedom.” He wrote in his letter.

“Because of my campaign for Sikh rights, it’s my belief that I have become a target of an Indian government media campaign to label my human rights campaign as “terrorist activities”, the letter further states.

His lawyer Gurpatwant Singh Pannun in his statement to CBC said “Indian authorities often label Sikh activists as terrorists, who are simply trying to raise awareness in Canada about human rights violations being committed against Sikhs in the Punjab.”
