June 07, 2003 01:01 IST
Jagjit Singh Chohan, a prominent advocate of Khalistan who left India in the seventies and returned last year, said on Friday night that the fight for a separate Sikh homeland has to be waged within India without resorting to violence.
Chohan said he appreciated the efforts of all the Sikh political parties in coming together on a single platform and declaring Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale a 'martyr'.
Former separatist leader Wassan Singh Zaffarwal, who recently came out from jail, said, "My ultimate goal is to achieve the separate state for Sikhs and my fight for this cause with the Government of India will continue unabated till the achievement of the goal."
