Indian envoy Taranjit Singh Sandhu heckled by pro Khalistan group at US gurdwara

Indian ambassador to the United States, Taranjit Singh Sandhu was heckled by a group of pro-Khalistani elements on his visit to a gurudwara in New York. He had joined the local Sangat to celebrate Gurpurab at Guru Nanak Darbar in Long Island.

A video circulating on social media purportedly shows Sandhu being confronted by pro-Khalistani elements at the Gurudwara.

The video captures individuals making statements about designated terrorists Hardeep Singh Nijjar and Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

Later, without mentioning the heckling he faced, Sandhu posted on X, “Privileged to join the local Sangat, including from Afghanistan, at Guru Nanak Darbar of Long Island in celebrating Gurpurab- listened to Kirtan, spoke about Guru Nanak's everlasting message of togetherness, unity, and equality, partook langar, and sought blessings for all."

It is noted that there has been a spike in pro-Khalistani incidents in countries like the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

According to several media reports, this incident marks the second incident within two months involving the heckling of an Indian envoy by pro-Khalistan elements. In September, Indian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Vikram Doraiswami faced a similar situation when he was prevented from entering a gurudwara in Glasgow, Scotland.
