The Indian World Forum has strongly condemned the actions of illegal organizations, including Sikh For Justice, for pursuing and inciting violence against Indian expatriates in Canada. The forum has called upon the Canadian government to seriously consider and take action against these activities.
The Forum stated that extremist elements, including terrorist Arshdeep Singh Dhall and Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, are conspiring against the sovereignty of Canada. Canada should prevent the use of its soil for activities that are against human rights and involve heinous crimes. In India, we warmly host our Canadian brethren, and our culture ensures the well-being of Canadian expatriates in India.
Earlier, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had accused the Indian government of potentially being involved in the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. However, following India’s displeasure, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a more conciliatory stance, stating that they are not trying to provoke India but merely want India to take the matter seriously.
Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead earlier this year
It’s worth noting that in June of this year, prominent Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar was shot dead. Unknown assailants attacked Nijjar near the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey, Canada, resulting in his death.
India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) had declared Nijjar an absconder. Nijjar was the president of Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara and a prominent face of the separatist organization Sikh For Justice (SFJ) in Canada. He was also a key figure of the Khalistan Tiger Force.
