This chapter focuses on foreign connections and the Khalistan. It reveals that the Indian media and even government spokesmen accused various foreign agencies of attempting to destabilize India through their offers of money, shelter, training facilities, and arms to the Sikh terrorists. The CIA and Pakistan are the two foreign connections that are frequently mentioned in these allegations. One portion in this chapter looks at the Khalistan, which remains to be unaccepted among the Indian Sikhs. The second half of the chapter is focused on a detailed summary of the events that unfolded during the five centuries’ worth of Sikh history discussed in this volume. It covers the death of Maharajah Ranjit Singh to the martyrdom of Bhindranwale.

Keywords:   foreign connections, Khalistan, destabilization attempts, Sikh terrorists, CIA, Pakistan, Indian Sikhs, Maharajah Ranjit Singh, martyrdom of Bhindranwale
