According to livehindustan.com. A few days after nine people associated with Khalistani organizations were declared terrorists. The central government announced on Sunday (July 5) that 40 websites have been already blocked. That linked to the banned organization ‘Sikhs for Justice’ (SFJ) to support separatist activities that have been done. The US-based SFJ is a pro-Khalistan group.
From Home ministry India
A Home Ministry spokesman said, “Sikhs for Justice” (SFJ) is an illegal organization under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), 1967. He started a campaign to register supporters for his plan. On the recommendation of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) issued orders to block 40 websites of SFJs under Section -69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. “
From ministry of electronic and IT
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) is the nodal authority to monitor cyberspace in India. As Last year, the Ministry of Home Affairs had banned the SFJ for its alleged anti-national activities. The SFJ had emphasized the Sikh referendum, 2020, as part of its separatist agenda. Another official said that this organization openly supports the creation of Khalistan and in doing so, challenges India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
On July 1, nine people associated with the separatist Khalistani organization were declared terrorists under the UAPA by the Home Ministry of India. Four of these people are in Pakistan. These people are associated with various terrorist organizations. They include Wadhwa Singh Babbar, the kingpin of Babbar Khalsa International, Lakhbir Singh heading the International Sikh Youth Federation, Ranjit Singh heading the Khalistan Zindabad Force and Paramjit Singh heading the Khalistan Commando Force. All four are in Pakistan.
The Home Ministry said that these nine people are operating from Pakistan and other countries. They are involved in various activities of terrorism. According to the ministry, “They are engaged in their nefarious intentions to destabilize the country by trying to raise the head of terrorism in Punjab by indulging in their anti-national activities and pro-Khalistan activities.”
These websites have been ordered to be banned by the home ministry of India. In the coming time, there will be no website related to Khalistan supporters in India. According to the News Websites, the Sikhs for Justices are a criminal activity organization that incites the learners to revolt from India.
And according to Amarujala.com, The government has banned 40 websites of banned organization Sikhs for Justice (SFJ). The Union Home Ministry said on Sunday that the decision has been taken by the organization to support separatist activities.
The second major decision of the Government of India
This is the second major decision of the Government of India in the last few days as digital content. Earlier, the government had banned about 59 Chinese apps. Questions were being raised about these apps, including data theft.
Why 40 websites were blocked
They were accused of promoting separatism and misleading the youth. In such a situation, this decision is being considered very important in terms of security. This organization operates from the US and has been banned in India.
As the organization has also demanded a referendum on separate Khalistan in Punjab several times. Khalistan’s claim has always been rejected on behalf of the Government of India, concrete action has also been taken every time on organizations seeking it.
Khalistan has been particularly active this year as they plan to hold a so-called “referendum”. Canada, the second-largest segment of the Sikh population after India, has been a base for ISI-backed Khalistanis to gain support from overseas Indians.
Indian security agencies prepared a dossier against those involved in various terrorist activities, and important evidence was collected against all these suspects.
