AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal who recently received high praise from Pakistan in the form of twitter trend #PakStandsWithKejriwal after he demanded proof of the government’s surgical strike, now again seems to be receiving praise and support across the border for his perceived Pro Khalistan stand. Many seem to be quoting his alleged letter to Iqbal Singh, expressing support for his fight for Sikh rights and Pro-Khalistan terrorist Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar. Back in 2014 Kejriwal had supported clemency for Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar the pro-Khalistan terrorist imprisoned in the 1993 Delhi blast case by writing a letter for the same to the President of India.
The tweeples from Pakistan now seem to be trending #KejriwalRisesForSikhRights. We managed to compile some tweets of the Pakistani users who were all praise for Kejriwal.

Even though the fight for a separate country of Khalistan has almost died off in contemporary Punjab, support for the movement still continues in Pakistan and is also kept alive by some Sikh groups based in western countries. As recently as 2013 there was an assassination attempt on Lieutenant General Brar (the man who executed operation blue star) in the UK by pro-Khalistani Sikh gangs.
When it comes to Kejriwal and AAP, time and again they have been embroiled in allegations of being supportive to the Khalistani cause as reported by us about 2 years ago. It was also reported that Kejriwal and AAP seem to be almost wishing for votes in Punjab elections via the Khalistani cause. Apart from the reports, political parties and figures like, Congress Leader Amarinder Singh, Shiromani Akali dal and AAP’s own MP Dharamveer Gandhi have spoken about AAP receiving support from Pro-Khalistan radical Sikh groups. Again this February it was extensively reported about AAP blatently using Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in their campaign posters.
