As the farmer protest against the contentious farm laws is heating up each passing day, intervention from the external forces have also come to the fore.
Days after prominent personalities like Hollywood singer-actor Rihanna, child activist Greta Thunberg took to social media to support farmers’ protest in India, another vociferous video clip of co-founder of Canada-based Poetic Justice Foundation, Mo Dhaliwal has emerged.
The Delhi Police has alleged that creator of ‘toolkit’ was looking at fueling the Khalistani movement in the garb of supporting the farmers’ protest.
In a recent video, reportedly shot in front of the Visa Consulate in Vancouver on January 26, Dhaliwal can be seen eliciting support for the ongoing farmers’ protest and also the separatist Khalistani movement.
“…This begins with the repeal of the farm bills, it does not end there,” Dhaliwal said during the group’s protest outside the Indian consulate. “If the farm bills get repealed tomorrow, that is not a victory. This battle begins with the repeal of the farm bills, it does not end there. Let no one tell you that this battle is going to end with the repeal of the farm bills. They are trying to tell you that you are separate from Punjab, and you are separate from the Khalistan movement. You are not.” he said.
“…We are here for one movement and that is the independence and sanctity of Punjab,” he added.
Through this, Dhaliwal is clearly seen persuading the member of his audience at the site to keep an open mind for demanding Khalistan.
Without taking any particular names, the Delhi Police has filed a criminal case alleging criminal conspiracy and sedition based on the ‘toolkit‘.
Mo Dhaliwal and his company, PJF, had come under scanner after activist Thunberg tweeted a document that consisted of detailed online and offline action plan of protests that liked to the farmers’ protest.
The first document contained details of Republic Day celebrations in India on January 26, that the group intended to commemorate as the global protest day. Hours after she deleted the post and later uploaded what a police officer described as an updated and sanitized version.
The Delhi Police had earlier declared that they had already identified at least 300 handles from Pakistan that were trying to mobilise protesters at the Delhi borders with the hashtag — Support Khalistan.
