” In 1946, the full house of the SGPC passed a resolution for an Independent & Sovereign Sikh State which would encompass the area South of the river Chenab to the Jamuna in North. This resolution was brought forward by S. Basant Singh Kukkar(Member SGPC), which was unanimously passed by the entire House. It was the duty of the British Govt. the home of the Parliamentary form of government to honour this resolution. However most of our Sikh leaders of that time were so muddled that they too could not inforce this resolution.
But before this resolution, the Communist party of India(CPI) passed the resolution for the creation of a separate sovereign state for the Sikhs – Khalistan. This resolution was drafted by none other than Harkrishan Singh Surjit. This resolution passed by CPI was then sent to the Kremlin in Moscow, where it was accepted and ratified, which meant that the Soviet Union had also agreed to the formation of the Khalistan sovereign state. Now it is the duty of our research scholars to go throw the archives of the Kremlin to find out wherever this resolution is kept. ”
