  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Political unrest has erupted in Punjab, India over the manhunt for a leader of a Sikh separatist movement, resulting in protests in cities like San Francisco and London. The government has imposed an internet blackout in Punjab since Saturday, making it difficult to obtain accurate information about the situation on the ground. Many families are unable to contact their relatives, adding to the confusion and anxiety. While the Punjab government has confirmed the arrest of around 100 Sikh activists, unofficial reports suggest the number could be as high as 1,500. The target of the manhunt, Amritpal Singh, is not only a leader of the separatist movement but also a preacher and activist. The protests in Punjab are fueled by concerns over the drug crisis, water issues, and a broader questioning of government rights. There has been a call for the Canadian government to engage with their Indian counterparts and urge the restoration of democratic norms and internet services. Amidst the unrest, individuals like Hardeep Singh, whose mother is currently in India, are grappling with uncertainty. Hardeep is worried about her mother's ability to return to Canada due to flight cancellations. Meanwhile, mass protests are spreading across Punjab, demonstrating the public's support for Amritpal Singh and their frustration with his arrest. The situation has also led people in other parts of India to question the legitimacy of the arrests of Singh and other activists.
