A British Sikh leader who has advocated the delisting of banned terrorist groups has been on a Canadian speaking tour to drum up support for a new lobby group to advance the so-called "Sikh Agenda."

Dabinderjit Singh, a former member of the International Sikh Youth Federation, told The Vancouver Sun he met with 250 to 300 Sikhs in B.C. and Ontario to finalize the seven-point agenda, which includes reversing the ban on two terrorist organizations and support for the creation of a separate Sikh country called Khalistan.

Singh said a lobby group has been formed to get commitments from Canadian politicians for at least some of the agenda points, particularly during an election campaign.
