Khalistan is a far-fetched idea, but it is a cause for concern

Published on

The Khalistani separatist movement is the center of controversy between India and Canada. The controversy has become more fierce after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged that India was behind the murder of a pro-Khalistani leader in British Columbia. India has strongly rejected this allegation. The issue of Khalistan is also related to this statement, due to which Punjab has been in the grip of terrorism for years. Punjab is traditionally known as the granary state of India. Despite this, successive governments have neglected and exploited this state and the Sikhs living here for their own political and economic gains. This is creating resentment among the Sikh community, both in India and outside.

The community has always been misunderstood

A separate country for Sikhs will not solve the myriad issues in Punjab, where the majority of Sikhs living in India live. Unemployment, drug crisis, high rate of female foeticide etc. are some such problems. The number of Sikhs in the population of India is approximately 2.30 crore. That is, less than 2 percent of the total population of the country, but they play a big role in the economy and socio-cultural life. After India gained independence in 1947, Punjab and its mostly Sikh farmers helped move towards food self-sufficiency. Pritam Singh, academic visitor to the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies at the University of Oxford, says the community has always been misunderstood and undervalued.

Also witnessed two of the most horrific incidents in the history of India.

Khalistan supporters say that they should have got their motherland as soon as India got independence. The movement for Khalistan reached its peak in the 1980s and 90s. Punjab not only witnessed horrific violent attacks and the death of thousands of people, it also witnessed two of the most horrific incidents in the history of India. The first was the military operation in the Golden Temple complex and the second was the retaliatory assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards. Due to both the incidents a large number of Sikhs were killed. Many Sikhs believe that their complaints were never taken properly. Due to violence many Sikhs migrated to UK, US and Canada. Canada is the country which has the largest population of Sikhs after India. The Sikhs who settled in other countries and left their motherland also took anger and fear with them. It was taken to the youth, who are today vocal supporters of Khalistan.

has been declared illegal

The possibility of a separate nation in India in the form of Khalistan is a distant thought, yet it is a matter of great concern. The movement has been outlawed and is seen as a terrorist threat. In 1985, an Air India plane was blown up, killing 329 people. It is widely believed that it was carried out by Canada-based separatist Sikhs in retaliation to India. There are other factors that gave rise to Sikh militancy. C. Christine Fair, a professor in the security studies program at Georgetown University, writes that anger over issues such as drug addiction, youth struggling to find good-paying jobs, and a lack of role model leadership are central to the farmers’ protests in 2020 and 2021. Appeared.

Punjab Government and Central Government should focus on solving the problems of the youth.

The big question is what can be the solution to the problem? Punjab Government and Central Government should focus on solving the problems of the youth. This seems difficult in view of the economic condition of Punjab. The situation is such that in 2021, 54 percent of the state’s tax revenue was spent on repaying the debt. Taking steps like investing in education, freeing youth from drug addiction and focusing on developing health care infrastructure can change the situation. – karishma Waswani
