British Indian rapper Hard Kaur has courted fresh controversy after she released a video extending her support to the banned Khalistan group. Hard Kaur also said that minorities were fed up with the Indian government.
In the video shared on Instagram, Hard Kaur was seen sporting a white T-shirt, which read, “Punjab Referendum 2020, Khalistan.” She was heard saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, make sure you sign Referendum 2020. Khalistan Zindabad.”
In another video, she is heard lipsynching the lyrics that said, “Naa Teeron Se Naa Talwaaron Se, Sikh Qaum Dare Gaddaron Se. Hamein Kisi Se Koi Khatra Nahin, Dar Lagta Hain Khud Ke Yaaron Se (We are not scared of arrows or swords, we are scared of traitors. We don’t face danger from anyone, we fear our own friends).”
In other videos, she tagged Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal, while calling for a 21-gun salute for militant leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. The group Sikhs for Justice that Hard Kaur has supported was banned by the Indian Home Ministry last week for anti-India activities.

In one of her latest posts, Hard Kaur shared a video message from British politician and former leader of Respect Party, George Galloway, who extended his support for the independence of Punjab from India.
Last month, Hard Kaur, whose real name is Taran Kaur Dhillon, was booked for sedition for an objectionable post on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Hard Kaur was born in India but she moved to Birmingham in the UK with her family later.
