Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 16 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday removed posters of the upcoming event of Canadian singer Shubh, saying that there is no place for 'Khalistan' supporters in Bharat.

"There is no space for Khalistanis who are the enemy of integrity and unity of India. We won't let Canadian singer Shubh perform on the auspicious land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mumbai...If no proper action is taken then the organisers will have to face the revolt..." said BJYM President Tajinder Singh Tiwana.

The BJYM has alleged that the Canadian singer, Shubh, also known as Shubhneet Singh, supports the Khalistan movement through social media.

Recently, Shubh also posted a distorted map of Bharat through a post on social media, the BJYM claimed.

According to an official statement, a memorandum was submitted by the BJYM to the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai demanding strict action against Khalistan supporter singer Shubhneet Singh and cancellation of all his performances.

"We have given a memorandum to the organizers and Mumbai police to cancel the program peacefully and if appropriate action is not taken, we will protest. Through the memorandum, we have demanded the registration of an FIR against rapper Shubh, a resident of Canada, for posting on social media against the Indian government and the country", said the BJYM President, Tiwana.

"Shubh has more than 1 million followers on social media, including youth from India. Recently, on March 23, 2023, Shubh posted a map of India without Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab on his Instagram account, and another post in the form of a post-story under the name "Pray for Punjab." This is a direct violation of India's integrity. There is no place for such traitors in our country. Our demand from the Mumbai police is to take strict action against such people by registering an FIR", he added.

It is worth mentioning that the Khalistan movement began to take hold in the country in the 1970s during the regime of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Meanwhile, the negotiations for a free trade agreement between India and Canada have been stalled, sources said on Friday.

The sources cited"certain political developments" in Canada as the reason for the pause in the negotiations, and added talks will resume once issues are settled between both the governments.

The increasing anti-India activities by pro-Khalistan elements in Canada have cast a shadow on the bilateral ties. (ANI)
