Pannu’s ominous warning concerning the 2023 Cricket World Cup, unfolding events leading up to the filing of an FIR.

The Gujarat Police has officially filed an FIR against Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the leader of the banned organization ‘Sikhs for Justice.’ Pannun had issued a chilling threat, declaring his intent to transform the upcoming Cricket World Cup, set to commence on October 5 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, into a ‘World Terror Cup.’

As revealed by the Cyber Crime Branch of Ahmedabad Police in the FIR, Pannun had disseminated his ominous message via a pre-recorded statement from an overseas phone number. The complaint, filed by Cyber Crime Branch Sub-Inspector HN Prajapati, underscores that numerous individuals reported receiving threatening pre-recorded messages from an unidentified phone number.

These aggrieved recipients promptly alerted law enforcement through various channels. The content of the pre-recorded message, as documented in the FIR, conveyed that October 5 would not mark the commencement of the Cricket World Cup but would instead herald the start of the ‘World Terror Cup.’

The message included menacing declarations that Sikhs for Justice intended to descend upon Ahmedabad brandishing Khalistani flags, seeking vengeance for the alleged murder of Martyr Nijjar. It vowed to counter violence with ballots, stating, “We will answer your bullets with ballot papers.” The message ominously cautioned, “Remember 5th October, this will not be the Cricket World Cup but the beginning of the World Terror Cup,” with attribution to Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.

The FIR highlights the Indian government’s classification of Gurpatwant Singh Pannun as a terrorist and his operation of the Sikhs for Justice organization from overseas. It further alleges that Pannun is actively engaged in promoting fear and discord between Sikhs and other communities within the country, as well as being involved in terrorist activities on Indian soil.

Pannun’s menacing message comes in the wake of a diplomatic standoff between India and Canada, stemming from the alleged killing of Khalistani separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada on June 18.
