They have condemned the 'Referendum 2020' by the pro-Khalistan outfit Sikhs for Justice and called for strict action against those propagating anti-India movement. During the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches in the UK, few Sikhs along with Pakistani fans raised pro-Khalistan slogans which saw a large scale condemnation. Countries like the UK and Canada have routinely provided support to the Khalistanis. These Sikhs are allegedly backed and financed by Pakistan's spy agency, the ISI. The intelligence agency ISI has also been blamed for promoting Khalistan agenda under the guise of Sikh pilgrimage via the Kartarpur corridor.

Tibetans in exile condemn Chinese statements about reincarnation of Dalai Lama

Tibetans in exile condemn Chinese statements about reincarnation of Dalai LamaChina chose to ignore that appointment of the next Dalai Lama involves a certain spiritual process. Earlier, in 2011 the Chinese foreign ministry declared that only the government in Beijing can appoint the next Dalai Lama and no recognition should be given to any other succession candidate. While speaking to ANI on this matter, Speaker of Tibetan Parliament in-exile Pema Jungney said, "China is a communist country and they don't have any faith in religion whereas the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama is a matter of our religious faith. Tibet was an independent Nation before the illegal occupation by China and should reincarnation of the Dalai Lama will be decided by the office of the Dalai Lama only". 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".
