Votes in Khalistan referendum cross 200,000 mark in two months


With 20,000 votes in favour of Khalistan state cast by the British Sikh community at four venues on the eve of New Year, the overall figure of votes cast in the Khalistan Referendum crossed the 200,000 mark.

As the British Sikh community rounded the year 2021 by holding Khalistan Referendum, voting was held at Gurdwaras Singh Sabha in Hounslow, Gurdwaras Singh Sabha in Slough, Guru Nanak Gurdwaras in Wednesfield and Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick.

As many as 20,000 people voted at four venues on Dec 31, 2021, said Sikhs For Justice, Organisers of the Khalistan referendum. The voting had started exactly 60 days ago on Oct 31 last year at the Queen Elizabeth Hall outside the Palace of Westminster with a regular interval in more than 10 cities outside of London.

During the period, more than 200,000 Sikhs took part in the Khalistan referendum voting, which had attracted widespread publicity and annoyed India so much that Indian foreign secretary raised the issue of voting with British Premier Boris Johnson and the foreign minister. Participation of a 95-year-old Sikh woman and her unflinching resolve was the highlight of the Dec 31 voting. —NNI
