The Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF) is a militant group, and is part of the Khalistan movement to create a Sikh homeland called Khalistan via armed struggle. It was identified in 2005 as a terrorist organisation by the EU.[2]

Contents

Organization

The Khalistan Zindabad Force is headed by Ranjit Singh Neeta. He is a native of Jammu & Kashmir.[1] Ranjit Singh was listed among India's 20 most wanted persons in 2008.[3]

The Khalistan Zindabad Force draws most of its support from Sikhs from Jammu.

The strength and striking capabilities of the Khalistan Zindabad Force are currently unknown, but it is reported that attempts have been made for the Khalistan Zindabad Force and other militant groups from Kashmir to co-ordinate their efforts.[1]

Activity

Since the early 1990's the Khalistan Zindabad Force has been less active but was reported to still be active in 2008.[1] In December 2005 the European Union classified the Khalistan Zindabad Force as a terrorist organisation, freezing its monetary assets throughout its 25 member countries.[2]

Claims [4] [5] and denials [4] [6] of responsibility have been reported in the name of the Khalistan Zindabad Force for a May 2009 attack at the Gurdwara Nanaksar in Vienna, Austria, that left Rama Nand, a leader of the Dera Sach Khand dead, 17 injured,[7] [8] and sparked riots across northern India.[9] [10] [11] [12] [13]
