Manmohan Singh Khalsa from Southall, UK joins Dr Pirzada via phone. Khalsa was a founding member of the Dal Khalsa UK that was the first unit of Dal Khalsa (International) established outside of Punjab. Dal Khalsa was the name of the Sikh army that operated in the 17th and 18th centuries (1660–1780) in the Punjab region. The primary aim of Dal Khalsa is to achieve the independence of the Sikh majority region of North West India through peaceful and democratic means in order to establish a sovereign Sikh state, Khalistan. Manmohan Khalsa has been in exile since 12 February 1984 till the present day. Under his leadership, Dal Khalsa UK led protests against the 1984 Sikh Massacres in India and the military attack on the (the Golden Temple), the Sikhs’ holiest shrine. In 1984 from 3rd July to 8th July, then Indian Prime Minister Indra Gandhi ordered an army operation to get the occupation of Sikh Pilgrims from Golden Temple in Amritsar Punjab. Golden temple has a religious value to the Sikhs as one of their thrones Akal Takht is located in premises of Golden Temple. As result of army operation thousands of Sikh pilgrims got killed. Only after four months of the operation PM Indra Gandhi was killed by two of her Sikh body guards. Riots erupted after her killing that resulted in murder of almost 3000 Sikhs in New Delhi.

Protests were staged by Sikhs not only inside India but in UK and other countries as well in remembrance of genocide during operation blue star.
