Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh Wednesday said India “has to be very careful” of Pakistan’s “hidden agenda” after a poster of slain Khalistani leaders appeared in a video released by Islamabad welcoming Sikh pilgrims to Kartarpur.

The Indian Express first reported that posters of Khalistani separatist leaders Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Maj Gen Shabeg Singh and Amrik Singh Khalsa were shown in a poster in the background of the official Punjabi song released by Pakistan’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

Ek taraf vo hamein pyar dikha rahe hain aur doosri taraf gadbad kar rahe hain (On one hand they show us love, and on the other they do something inappropriate),” Singh said. “We have to be very careful”.

The three Khalistani leaders were killed in June 1984 when the Indian Army stormed Golden Temple in Operation Blue Star to free it from the separatists holed inside.
