London/IBNS: A Sikh restaurant owner in London is facing death threats after he posted a video on social media over the Khalistan movement, media reports said.

According to reports, Harman Singh Kapoor’s restaurant was attacked by pro-Khalistan supporters.

Harman’s video, which garnered two million views in two days, led to abusive calls, social media trolling, and threats against him and his family.

Harman claimed that the threats began after he posted a video on TikTok, in which he was quoted as saying by KhalsaVox, “This Khalistan movement started a while back and then it died down. Today again, a section of people who are settled in Canada, England and Australia want Khalistan but those in India don’t want it.”

Following the video, Harman alleged that he received death threats and his restaurant was attacked. The attackers demanded that he remove the video, raise pro-Khalistan slogans, and burn the Indian flag, or face death.

Harman said his wife and his daughter even received several rape threats.

“Our address was put online with calls to rape and kill them. Videos of miscreants licking the pictures of my wife and daughter were posted as well,” he added.
