UK Government Takes Firm Stand Against Khalistan Funding, Freezes Hundreds of Accounts

by Antariksh Singh

In a decisive move aimed at curbing anti-India extremism, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s administration has initiated a robust campaign to dismantle the financial networks supporting Khalistan advocates. A report from IDRW reveals that this effort has resulted in the freezing of over 300 bank accounts and the seizure of approximately Rs 100 crore (£10 million) associated with these supporters.

The UK government’s actions reflect a steadfast commitment to combating extremism and maintaining peace and stability both domestically and globally. By taking stringent measures against those involved in funding separatist movements, they are sending a clear message that support for terrorism will not be tolerated and will be met with severe repercussions.

The investigation has not been confined to the UK alone; it has extended its reach to uncover suspicious transactions across several countries, including Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. This underscores the transnational nature of such extremist networks and the necessity of disrupting their financial infrastructure to thwart any anti-India activities reliant on these funds.

One of the significant seizures made during this operation was a substantial sum of Rs 20 crore (£2 million) discovered in the account of Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), a prominent pro-Khalistan organization advocating for a separate Sikh state. The group’s previous deposit for a pro-Khalistan referendum in Scotland further illustrates SFJ’s efforts to promote its separatist agenda on an international scale.

While official statements from the UK government are yet to confirm these reports, the actions outlined in DailySamvad serve as a resounding warning to any group or individual espousing extremist ideologies.

This unfolding development underscores the imperative of international collaboration in the ongoing fight against extremism and separatist movements worldwide. By working together to disrupt the financial lifelines of such groups, nations can significantly weaken their ability to spread discord and violence, ultimately contributing to a safer and more secure global community.
