On the eve of #ramanavami thread on one of the main Rama Temples down South, and one of the holiest Hindu sites,Bhadrachalam on the banks of the Godavari. A temple associated with Bhakta Ramadasu.
Shree Rama is an integral part of Telugu society and culture, contrary to what some "enlightened intellectuals" claim. Ramalayams are found in every village, small town,city of Andhra and Telangana. And Ramanavami is a major festival here.
We have had different versions of the Ramayana in Telugu, the more well known ones being Molla Ramayanam, Sri Ranganatha Ramayanam and Ramayanamu Kalpavrikshamu by Viswanatha Satyanarayan. Not to mention popular Telugu movies on Ramayana.

Khalistan idea is supported mostly by NRI Sikhs in US, Canada, Australia and UK, most of whom have migrated during the 70s and 80s, and have no clue about how much India has changed since then, they are still stuck in a time warp.
Sikhs in India who have been through those terrible years , don't have any wet dreams of Khalistan. Also good number of Sikhs are settled in other parts of the country and quite integrated with the mainstream, they just want to lead a normal life.
The Sikhs in India know that any backlash from Khalistan would be hurting them more, and would not really back it. The NRI Sikhs on the other hand still pursue their Khalistani wet dreams as they will never face the backlash, rather it will be their fellow Sikhs here.
