Sikhs protest outside UN headquarters over Indo-Pak tensions, demand referendum for Punjab

Several members of the Sikh community held a protest outside the UN headquarters here to raise their concerns over the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan and its impact on the lives of the people in Punjab.
The ‘Save Punjab Rally’, organised yesterday by rights group Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) in collaboration with civil rights groups and management committees of the Sikh temples across North America, also demanded a referendum in Punjab. During the rally, held across the street from the UN headquarters, the demonstrators, including several pro-Khalistan Sikhs, carried placards that read ‘Boycott India’s Jingoistic War’ and ‘Support Punjab Referendum.’ SFJ also submitted a communiqu to officials from Uruguay’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations.
