Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today welcomed the decision of the Central Government to ban the Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) organisation.
The senior Congress leader tweeted that he is happy with the Government of India’s decision to ban Sikhs For Justice as unlawful but, he said that what ‘we need is a war against the terror outfit.’

Earlier News agency ANI had tweeted that Ministry of Home Affairs sources had said that the Sikhs for Justice wanted to use Kartarpur Corridor for propagating their secessionist ideology.
The source told ANI that there’s no concrete evidence that Pak has curbed or banned the group. India is likely to raise the issue regarding security and safety of pilgrims during Kartarpur talks on 14th.
