Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun has released a new video, in which he threatened to 'shut down' the ICC World Cup final match India and Australia on Sunday (19 November) in Ahmedabad.
In the video, Pannun could be seen talking about the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and the 2002 Gujarat riots.
His remarks appear to be aimed at provoking reactions from the Muslim and Sikh communities. Additionally, the founder of banned Khalistani outfit 'Sikhs for Justice' could also be heard talking about India's position regarding the current conflict between Israel and Hamas.
This incident is not Pannun's first instance of releasing a threatening video.
Previously, in October, he warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi, citing the Israel-Palestine conflict as an example, suggesting that a comparable response might occur in India.
Pannun stated, "People under illegal occupation from Punjab to Palestine will react. And violence begets violence."
In September, an FIR was filed against him, accusing him of making threats and fostering hostility in the lead-up to the 2023 India-Pakistan ICC World Cup match.
