Previously threatened by Khalistani zealots for speaking out against them, the owner of a Sikh restaurant now claims that his car was fired upon and vandalized in West London.
A group of British Hindus and Indians called Insightuk2 claimed in a video posted on X that several unidentified people shot at Harman Singh Kapoor’s car. It further claimed that those who claimed to support Khalistan had regularly threatened his family with rape and other forms of harm.
The UK authorities, however, have not released a formal comment about these allegations.
It is noteworthy that the allegations were made public on the same day that individuals from outside of Scotland purportedly interfered with a meeting with the Indian High Commissioner.
These people intimidated and mistreated them. The HC and CG chose to depart the premises immediately after they arrived in an effort to avoid any potential conflict, the Indian High Commission in the UK stated in a statement.
The onslaught on Kapoor’s family, according to UK-based journalist and researcher Charlotte Littlewood, is still going on, according to a post she published on X.
Harman Singh Kapoor and his family are still being attacked. They are awaiting police as it is believed that Khalistani radicals shot at their car in London. We’ll see more of this, as predicted, as the Canada row has given extremists more confidence.
The removal of the panic alarm from the family’s car had previously caused her concern due to the potential diplomatic fallout from Canada’s claim that India was responsible for the death of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
With the India-Canada dispute, there is a greater sense of fear now. where the Khalistani fanatics are killing Indian officials in India and threatening Indian High Commissions in the West. How was it decided to take away their panic alarm? (sic)” she added in her message.
According to INSIGHT UK, Khalistani militants allegedly threatened Sikhs in the UK.
Additionally, it stated that no arrests had been made despite months of alleged family torture.
This family has endured months of suffering because the police have not made any arrests. “Why is the UK government not taking strict action against an extremist ideology with a history of terrorism?” INSIGHT UK said in a post on X. “When will action be taken against these Khalistani extremists who pose a serious law and order threat @metpoliceuk.”
According to a previous article published by Khalsa Vox on May 4, Kapoor and his family said they had been the target of persistent online threats as a result of posting a video about the Khalistan movement.
The purported threats apparently materialized despite several police assurances of security and other safety precautions. The family has reportedly experienced three attacks and does not feel safe, according to Khalsa Vox, a news website covering Punjab politics, history, culture, and tradition.
Supporters of Khalistan invaded Harman’s restaurant in April 2023, just a few days after the Indian High Commission in London was vandalized.
After sharing a video, Harman got harassing social media messages, threatening phone calls, and a video that garnered two million views in just two days.
Harman claimed that his shop was vandalized and he received death threats after the video went public. If he didn’t take down the video, yell in favor of Khalistan, and burn the Indian flag, the assailants would kill him.
According to Harman, his wife and children were also the targets of rape threats.
Calls to rape and murder them were posted online along with our address. Bitter Winter, a publication on religious liberty and human rights, reported that he added: “Videos of miscreants licking the pictures of my wife and daughter were posted as well.”
An independent inquiry that former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson requested raised concerns about the pro-Khalistan radicals’ expanding influence among the British Sikh community, according to Khalsa Vox.
The Bloom Review, an impartial investigation commissioned by former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, however, advised the Rishi Sunak government to confront the issue right once and defend the vast majority of Sikhs in the UK who do not adhere to their violent mindset.
Rapid action was strongly emphasized in the study. The study found that rogue Khalistani organizations in the UK intimidate and exert pressure on the Sikh community. These pro-Khalistan organizations lobby politicians under the guise of promoting human rights, which artificially strengthens their position and attracts unwarranted attention.
According to the news article, the behavior of pro-Khalistan organizations creates a false impression of legitimacy that is at odds with Sikh principles.
Realizing that the bulk of British Sikh communities do not concur with Khalistani separatists is vital.
