India raises concerns over Pakistan’s controversial Kartarpur Corridor video – India Today


India has raised concerns with Pakistan over Kartarpur Corridor video with pictures of three slain Khalistani leaders in the background. India said that it hoped that Pakistan will show that they do not support such anti-India activities.
After releasing an official video inauguration song on Kartarpur Corridor with pictures of three slain Khalistani leaders in the background, Pakistan has released a different version of the video on Twitter.

In the Twitter version, the Pakistan government has omitted the last few seconds of the video where posters of the Khalistani leaders featured in the background.

The video on Twitter featured posters of slain Khalistani separatist leaders Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Amrik Singh Khalsa and Major General (Dismissed) Shabeg Singh. All these Khalistani separatist leaders were killed during Operation Blue Star in June 1984.

Bhindranwale was the head of Sikh religious sect Damdami Taksal.

Shabeg Singh was an Indian Army general, who joined the Khalistani movement in 1984 after he was stripped of his rank and court-martialled on charges of corruption just before his retirement. Khalsa was a Khalistani student leader who headed the now-banned All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSD).

The video has surfaced just days before the Kartarpur Corridor is slated to be inaugurated.
