The speakers, on the occasion, said that Yasin’s only crime was that he had been fighting for the just cause of freedom of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and for the freedom of his people.

They demanded of the United Nations Human Rights Commission to take notice of the denial of free trial and the sentence given to Yasin Malik. The people of IIOJK required freedom to exercise their right to self-determination in accordance with the UNSC resolutions, they added.

Meanwhile, ahead of 38th year of Operation Bluestar, secessionist group “Sikhs For Justice” (SFJ) gave a call to Sikh Soldiers to “Stop Defending Indian Borders – Join Ardas At Sri Akal Takht Sahib” to “liberate Punjab” from the Indian occupation through “Khalistan Referendum”.

“Leave Army Units – Reach Sri Akal Takht Sahib” on 6 June to join Ardas for the announcement of Khalistan Referendum Voting Date in Punjab, urged SFJ General Counsel Gurpatwant Singh Pannun in his video message to the serving Sikh soldiers.

SFJ saluted Sikh soldiers of: Sikh Regimental Centre, Ramgarh, in Bihar;
the 18th Sikh, Jammu; the 9th Sikh at Ganagnagar, Rajsthan; the 14th Punjab at Pune, Maharshatra; and the 171 Field Regiment at Alwar, Rajshtan
who battled the Indian Army to avenge Operation Bluestar – the military attack at Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar.

Reminding the June 1984 Mutiny by the pro Khalistan Sikh soldiers in which pro India Brig. R.S. Puri was gunned down in retaliation to Indian Army’s attack on Sri Darbar Sahib, Pannun further guided the serving Sikh soldiers to “Join Khalistan Referendum – the final war against India to liberate Punjab to establish Sikh homeland Khalistan”.

On 6 June, after the Ardas on 38th year martyrdom day of Shaheed Bhindranwale and General Shabeg Singh, SFJ has planned to announce “Khalistan Referendum Voting Date in Punjab” from Sri Akal Takht Sahib.
