September 11, 2023

Over 135,000 Canadian Sikhs have voted in the referendum for the establishment of an independent and sovereign homeland Khalistan.

The pro-Khalistani group Sikhs for Justice, had organised the referendum in Vancouver yesterday.

The voting took place at the Gurdwara, which was the site of the tragic assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the President of Khalistan Referendum Canada and a prominent Sikh activist.

Addressing the large gathering after the voting Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the General Counsel of Sikhs For Justice said that Sikhs would seek justice for the ruthless murder of Nijjar, emphasizing that he was a peaceful activist who believed in democratic methods.

The Khalistan Referendum’s voting campaign started in the United Kingdom in October 2021, and since then, voting events have taken place in more than a dozen European capitals.
