The Narendra Modi government has been urging countries such as the United Kingdom and Canada to act against these forces

The Khalistan groups such as the SJF, Khalistan Zindabad Force among others have been responsible for numerous acts of terror in India. They have been involved in carrying out terror attacks in Punjab and also targeting Hindus in Punjab.
