Pieter FRIEDRICH, aka Pieter Singh, advocate for the Khalistani separatist movement.
FRIEDRICH got my attention when Christine Gralow shared a vid of him confronting Tulsi Gabbard about her so-called ties with Hindu fascism.

You picked out all the south asian names on her donor list, and researched them all? Like… you did some racial profiling shit? Then found two who belong to hindu groups that experts (you) say are hindu fascists?

1/x The anti-Tulsi propagandists must've got their orders for the day. They all seem to be pushing the #RSSprincess story. So let's talk about this article… the one that is most widely circulated that supposedly proves that she's RSS funded. Shall we? https://t.co/Z3Hfso8mdC

What is the Khalistani Movement?
I spent a good week researching his “human rights” group, the Organization for Minorities of India (OFMI), and was astounded.
Background on Khalistani separatists, their goal to establish their own theocratic fascist state, and their terrorist activities: https://www.thequint.com/news/india/khalistani-terrorist-why-is-movement-in-news-harminder-singh-mintoo-nabha-bhindranwale-gurmeet-ram-rahim-singh
Short documentary on the Khalistani Movement’s activities in Canada:
Khalistani Nationalists prey on Western ignorance and manipulate opportunistic politicians. One academic I recently spoke to tells me Khalistani operatives have learned to play the "politics of grievance" to manipulate public opinion. https://t.co/oCZ2PH2LvQ

Don’t be fooled… the Khalistani Movement is not about human rights. They even attack other Sikhs who don’t agree with their fascist ideology or who don’t support their separatist movement: https://www.republicworld.com/india-news/general-news/pro-khalistan-supporters-attack-akali-dal-leader-manjit-singh-gk-for-the-second-time-in-usa
How the Khalistani Movement Foments Hinduphobia in Western Nations
I did a vid about this, cuz I got sick of people accusing me of not being a real person. My accent? I grew up in Hawaii.
In the video above, I say that the RSS are thugs. I stand corrected. This was based on info given me by a colleague in Pakistan, who recently explained that this is his personal view, which should be considered biased.
While the RSS are often blamed by various groups as a source of violence, my own recent research into formal independent investigations conducted by legit outside organizations, such as the UN and Amnesty International, found that their conclusions did not cite the RSS as responsible for, or even involved with any specific incident of violence.
Pieter Friedrich and those who repeat his narrative often conflate the RSS, India’s majority party (the BJP), and American Hindu organizations as “linked” because they allegedly share Hindutva ideology.
Expert sources which reveal that Hindutva is not an “ideology” but a demographic label used to identify people who practice Indic religions, and which explain that because this demographic is the “majority” in India, anti-Hindu propagandists often deceptively morph its meaning in Western minds as Hindu Majority -> Hindu Supremacy -> Hindu Nationalism -> Hindu Fascism. These experts are neither biased activists nor random pundits. They are legit, peer reviewed, bona fide scholarly experts.

Pieter Friedrich and the OMFI’s direct involvement in the Khalistani Movement
I’m not talking about “ties” or “links” or connecting dots here. Pieter Friedrich and the OMFI are part of the Khalistani Movement.
About Binder — a founding member of groups Pieter has belonged to, including his current organization, the OMFI — and his terrorist activities: https://swarajyamag.com/world/an-introduction-to-one-of-the-breaking-india-groups-opposing-world-hindu-congress
Binder named in founding documents as organizing member of the Sikh Youth of America: https://www.corporationwiki.com/California/Lathrop/sikh-youth-of-america/41788112.aspx
As I mentioned in my video above, I discovered that everything people cite as evidence of Tulsi being “controlled” by India, happen to be things she did that countered FRIEDRICH’s own efforts to further his Khalistani agenda.
Under his religious name, Peter Singh, lobbying congress for legislation condemning Hindutva as a violent extremist ideology (measure, effectively blocked by Tulsi Gabbard): http://archive.is/xcSos
Lobbying the congressional Sikh Caucus to recognize the 1984 riots that happened in India when Khalistani terrorists assassinated their Prime Minister as “the 1984 Sikh Genocide”: https://sikhsiyasat.net/2015/05/15/daughter-of-hunger-striking-ealderly-sikh-activist-visits-california-congressional-offices/
Also, during these attempted meetings above, they pleaded for the release of political prisoners in India. What the article fails to mention, is that the “political prisoners” that the “Sikh activist” was on a hunger strike for, were in prison charges of terrorism. The article published by a Khalistani owned news site described the offices of Reps Eshoo and Honda as hostile… hopefully this means they knew what these guys were up to.
Lobbying effort to insert Hinduphobic language in California textbooks (unsuccessfully blocked by Tulsi Gabbard). Please notice how Pieter arbitrarily refers to protestors as the “Hindu Nationalist Lobby”: https://www.sikh24.com/2017/11/15/oped-ca-board-of-education-erases-truth-about-caste-oppression/#.XLI3-NLD_IW
OFMI Khalistani Nationalists, protesting the 2018 World Hindu Congress
26APR2019 Update: Friedich’s OMFI protest Tulsi at SheThePeople2020:
— TwitRant —
They also now seem to be targeting congressman Ro Khanna
Apart from being smart, Khanna has many things on common with Tulsi Gabbard: dozens, if not hundreds of Hindu Nationalist donors.

Pieter Friedrich’s propaganda efforts to frame Tulsi Gabbard as a Hindu Nationalist and destroy her political career
Promoting Tulsi-phobia on Twitter. Note: “@SaffronWatch”: http://archive.is/NxKRS
Twitter thread on propagandists who Pieter Friedrich networks with online to weaponize Tulsi Gabbard’s religion against her, while seeding Hinduphobia and pushing his Khalistani agenda:
May I point out that one of the main propagators of the Tulsi Hindu Nationalist lie happens to be pro Pakistan (a pro-Russia state that backs anti-Hindu Khalistani terrorism & harbors anti-America terrorists) and advocates for Stalinism? pic.twitter.com/1dRkfytdfv

I started calling this propaganda network, the Khalistani Knitting Circle.
Sameera KHAN, a former New Jersey Beauty Queen who has worked for Russia’s propaganda network, RT.
Christine GRALOW, A “long form” blogger who also lives in Kailua, Hawaii, who pushes the Tulsi mind-hive cult narrative. I wrote an analysis of her work, posted here. Also, please read about her sources.
Shay HODGES, a former primary challenger of Tulsi’s congressional seat.
Mainstream Echo: The first mainstream publication to pick up propaganda seeded by Friedrich and Bredimus was Paste Magazine.
Social Media Amplifiers:
Louise MENSCH, and other Republican Never-Trumpers who have been promoting the Trump-Collusion narrative. MENSCH continues to sling accusations against Tulsi that she admits are completely baseless:
Miscellaneous political operatives who’ve been trying to challenge Tulsi out of her congressional seat amplify this nonsense as well, for political reasons. It’s pretty gross.
The Amin Twitter Troll Network:
All of the Amin accounts (there are several) track back to just one “commonality”, you wanna know who’s the puppeteer??
Look at the one name that they are connected with…
Research, it’s an eye opener. pic.twitter.com/MxYxzrRBOS

When confronted, Pieter Friedrich’s only comment on my research was: “You’re confused.”
Christine GRALOW’s comments are included in the piece I wrote about her work… which only serves (in my opinion) to confirm that she is a liar. She’s threatening to sue me, now. My answers to her interrogatories are publicly posted here.
Shay HODGES has objected to being called a political opponent of Tulsi’s, and I’ve corrected my description of her to read: “a former primary challenger”.
