Target BSE on Anniversary of 1993 Mumbai Blasts: Khalistani Terrorist Pannun’s Latest Threat

    Target BSE on Anniversary of 1993 Mumbai Blasts: Khalistani Terrorist Pannun’s Latest Threat

    Following the failure of his referendum for a separate Khalistan, US-based radical separatist and Sikhs for Justice founder Gurpatwant Singh Pannun has made incendiary calls for the “economic destruction” of India by targeting the Bombay Stock Exchange from March 12, 2023, the 31st anniversary of the Mumbai serial blasts in which the BSE buildings was one of the targets.

    But unlike the 1993 blasts which damaged the BSE building, Pannun said, “the SJF call to target NSE/BSE from March 12 is aimed at destroying” India’s economic system. Pannun, designated a ‘terrorist’ by India, called for dumping Indian stock and purchasing American stock before March 12. He also identified banks and corporates that trade internationally among the targets.

    “After his referendum failed, he (Pannun) wants to make money through this new campaign. He is a foreign agent working for foreign agencies who are protecting him in the name of freedom of speech. He threatened the PM and now wants to target India’s economic stability. Punnun is a global terrorist who should face trail now,” an Indian intelligence source told News18.

    Pannun had recently made another threat against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, instigating Muslims to stop the PM’s Ayodhya roadshow on December 30 and offering a reward of $100,000 for it.

    In a dangerous escalation of threats against India, Pannun had also asked in a recent hate speech whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and NSA Ajit Doval “have 24/7 security blanket”. He had last month released a video threatening passengers of Air India flights on November 19. He had also issued threats to attack India’s Parliament.

    The SFJ is a US-based organisation banned by the Government of India under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) for its anti-India activities.

    In July 2020, Pannun was also declared an “individual terrorist” under the UAPA for promoting secessionism and allegedly encouraging Punjabi Sikh youth to take up arms.
