The US Department of State has termed the call by the Khalistani group Sikh for Justice (SFJ) to all Sikhs to boycott Air India as “unacceptable.” On November 5, SFJ founder and its legal counsel Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a designated terrorist in India, asked the global Sikh community to “stop flying Air India” from November 19.
India’s Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has ordered extra security checks for Air India flights in Punjab and Delhi airports after a threat received from the outlawed separatist Khalistani group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ).

After Canada, banned terrorist group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) announced the American phase of Khalistan referendum, beginning January 28, 2024. The SFJ made the announcement on Sunday at the 44th annual Sikh parade in Yuba City, California. It made the “America Votes” declaration with a float celebrating former Indian Army Chief General A.S. Vaidya’s killing by Sikh separatists Sukhdeo Singh and Harjinder Singh in 1986.
Stating that pro-Khalistan Sikhs have always been loyal to Canada, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, leader of radical Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), threatened Indo-Canadian Hindus and asked them to leave the country in a video which went viral on Wednesday. The emboldened dare from Pannun, legal counsel of SFJ, which is a banned terror outfit in India, comes after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused New Delhi of involvement in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, resulting in tit-for-tat expulsions of senior diplomats.
