THREATENING VIDEO TO QUEEN ELIZABETH
He said in the video:
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I’m going to do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the Royal Family. It is revenge for those who died in the massacre of Jallianwala Bagh in 1919. It is also a revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated against because of their race.
“I am an Indian Sikh, a Sith.”
The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, or Amritsar Massacre, took place in India in 1919, when British colonial troops shot dead 379 protesters and injured more than 1,000.
