Sikhs rally in London calling for independent state in India
More than 3,000 Sikhs gathered in London’s Trafalgar Square on Sunday calling for an independent territory in India.
Protesters are seeking an independence referendum in 2020 for a sovereign Sikh state they call Khalistan.
Many held banners calling for an end to “Indian occupation.”
The protest was organized by the US and Canada-based group Sikhs for Justice.
A simultaneous counter-protest of around a hundred people gathered nearby to call for India to remain united.
