“Inside the Hunt for Amritpal Singh: How India’s Mobile Internet Shutdown in Punjab is Essential for Stopping Criminals”
In recent years, India has been launching a manhunt for individuals they believe to be part of a Sikh separatist movement. Despite the group’s waning influence, certain activists have been singled out and pursued by Indian authorities, including the case of Indian-American activist, Surjit Singh. Singh, who has been living in the US for nearly four decades, was recently detained when he traveled to India to celebrate his daughter’s wedding.

This case is just one example of India’s ongoing crackdown on Sikhs, which has been criticized by human rights groups and activists around the world.
