What Is Khalistan Movement?

Khalistan flags were found tied on the main entrance gates and walls of Himachal Pradesh legislative assembly recently.

  • The flags have now been removed by the administration.
  • It is the fight for a separate Sikh state and owes its origins to the Punjabi Suba Movement.
  • The Akali Dal – a Sikh-dominated political party – sought to create a separate Sikh Suba or Province.
  • When the States Reorganization Commission, constituted to assess the demand for separate states by linguistic groups, made its recommendations, it rejected the Akali Dal’s demand.
