On Sunday, October 2, pro-Khalistan and anti-India slogans were found scrawled on the outer wall of the divisional forest officer’s office in the Punjab city of Bathinda, a stronghold of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Slogans are painted with spray paint. The banned Sikh Justice Team claimed responsibility for the heinous act.

According to reports, slogans like “Hindustan Muradabad, Muslim-Sikh Bhai Bhai and Khalistan Zindabad” were written on a water tank adjacent to Phases 4 and 5 of Model Town and on the wall outside the Divisional Forest Office on Joganand Road.

After receiving the information, police and intelligence officers rushed to the spot and erased the slogans from the wall. An investigation has been opened for the same.

Meanwhile, on October 2, following the incident, terrorist group Khalistan SFJ released a video clip in which SFJ chief Gurpatwant Singh Pannu is heard claiming responsibility for the act.


In a video message, SFJ General Counsel Gurpatwant Singh Panoon called on Pakistanis to support Punjab’s independence referendum in order to welcome new neighbor Khalistan, stating: “Lines have been drawn between Sikhs and Hindustan since the June 1984 attack on Sri Darbar Sahib and over 100,000 pro Khalistan Sikhs laid down their lives for independence.”

“SFJ’s global referendum on Khalistan with the November 6th vote in Toronto is a step towards liberating Punjab from Indian occupation,” Pannoon added.

In a similar incident, on the intervening night of June 14 and June 15, some anti-social elements wrote slogans of ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ on the walls near Shaktipit Sri Devi Talab Mandir in Jalandhar Punjab. Notably, similar slogans were seen near an educational institution on Lodhauli Road in Jalandhar. Subsequently, the banned terrorist organization Sikhs for Justice claimed responsibility for writing slogans on the walls near the temple.

There have been repeated attempts to create a Law and Order situation in Punjab by Khalistan elements. Earlier, similar slogans were also found in front of the magistrates’ residence in Faridkot. On June 13, similar reports came from Ferozpur, where slogans of Khalistan Zindabad, Sikh Justice Zindabad and SFJ on January 26, 2023 were written outside the office of the Divisional Railway Manager.
