The intelligence agency ISI has also been blamed for promoting Khalistan agenda under the guise of Sikh pilgrimage via the Kartarpur corridor.

To this Prof. Samdhong Rinpoche, former PM in-exile and envoy of the Dalai Lama added, "not by government of China neither the Government of India has anything to do with that and that has been made very clear by his holiness 2011 declaration that's very clear in the public domain so there is no question of India's intervention or China's intervention".
