While Pakistan prime minister-elect Imran Khan talks about friendship with India, the country's spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), is building up elaborate plans to embarrass India during 71st Independence Day functions in London. 

The ISI is using discredited Khalistani groups to further its agenda and backing them to organise pro-Khalistan rally in London.

Sources revealed, a team from Pakistan, headed by Abas Rana is visiting Surrey and meeting pro-Khalistani groups to hold anti-India protests and raise Khalistan issue on the occasion.

Sikhs for Justice, a pro-Khalistan group, revealed its plan for August 12 by holding a joint press conference with Kashmiri separatists in London. Pakistan-backed Kashmiri separatists in London are supporting the pro-Khalistani Sikhs for their so-called Referendum2020 for Khalistan.

The Press Conference of World Kashmir Freedom Movement, Kashmir Patriotic Forum International and Overseas Pakistani Welfare Organisation was hosted by UK based known Khalistani activist Paramjeet Singh Pamma whom India tried to extradite from Portugal.

"On August 12, we will unveil the case for Sikhs right to self-determination as guaranteed in UN Charter and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights", said Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, legal advisor of Sikhs for Justice.

In furtherance of its campaign for non-binding Referendum 2020, Sikhs for Justice will hold "London Deceleration" on August 12 at Trafalgar Square.

A large number of Indians living in UK will gather at Trafalgar Square on August 12 to celebrate 71 years of India's Independence.
