US Tightens Noose on Babbar Khalsa With a New Counter Terrorism Report

Published

on

The US has designated Sikh militant group Babbar Khalsa among the separatist movements that can endanger overseas American interests. Babbar Khalsa has been conducting assassinations and bombings against India and seeks to establish its own independent state in India.

Babbar Khalsa has been accountable for major terrorist attacks in India which have claimed the lives of innocent civilians, according to the Trump administration’s new National Strategy for Counter-Terrorism unveiled by Washington.

The direct reference to Babbar Khalsa, an international terrorist organisation and banned by several countries including the US, Canada and India assumes significance due to its limited foothold in North America.

The Indian government is believed to have raised with the Trump administration the issue of separatist Sikhs using the US as a platform to perform anti-India activities. In its strategy paper, the White House said there is a broad range of revolutionary, nationalist, and separatist movements overseas whose use of violence and intent to destabilise societies often puts American lives at risk.

“Such groups may avoid or deprioritise targeting United States interests, for now, to avoid detracting from their core goals but frequently conduct assassinations and bombings against major economic, political, and social targets, heightening the risk to the United States personnel and interests overseas,” the strategy said.
