Canada Stand on Khalistan: Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is in trouble among his own people because of one of his actions. People are calling Trudeau a supporter of Khalistanis. In fact, the Canadian PM has expressed suspicion of India’s involvement in the murder of Khalistani terrorist Harjeet Singh Nijjar.
Not only this, after this he also expelled a top Indian diplomat. According to Foreign Minister Melanie Jolly, the head of Indian Intelligence in Canada has been expelled. However, the minister did not reveal the name.
This is how the controversy started
Harjeet Singh Nijjar was a Khalistani terrorist. He was murdered on June 18, 2023 in British Columbia. According to AP report, Canada’s PM said in Parliament on Monday that Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead outside a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia on June 18. The country’s intelligence agency is investigating this. He has expressed suspicion of Indian connection in this murder.
‘Cooperation in investigation was sought from India’
Trudeau further said, “I met my Indian counterpart at the G20 summit last week. Narendra Modi The issue of this massacre was raised in front of. I told PM Modi that any involvement of the Government of India would be unacceptable and sought cooperation in the investigation.”
Trudeau’s own people surrounded him
At the same time, Trudeau is facing a lot of criticism on social media after accusing India and expelling the Indian diplomat. The people of his own country are surrounding him and asking him many questions. Some even accused Trudeau of making Canada like Pakistan, a haven for terrorists. Jill Todd wrote on X (previously Twitter), ‘Why does this little leftist want to fight with India?’ Another user wrote, ‘Chinese police stations in Canada investigated and said that India did it.’ At the same time, another user wrote, ‘Congratulations people of Canada, you have joined Pakistan which till now was the only country to give shelter to terrorists. Justin Trudeau is taking Canada on the path that Pakistan walked decades ago.
Relations between the two countries are continuously deteriorating
Canada has made this expulsion at a time when relations between India and Canada are tense, trade talks have derailed and Canada has also canceled a trade mission to India. A glimpse of deteriorating relations was also visible during the G-20 summit held in New Delhi.
Sikhs live in large numbers in Canada
Currently the Sikh population in Canada is more than 770,000. Khalistan movement is banned in India. The government considers it and its associated groups as a threat to national security. But this movement is getting some support in countries like Canada and United Kingdom. Nijjar had talked about an informal Khalistan referendum to demand a separate Sikh state. Last year, the Indian government had offered a reward of Rs 1 million for information leading to the capture or arrest of Nijjar.
