The massive image that’s rising from the India-Canada diplomatic tussle is worrisome. This incident brings out 4 dimensions. First, Canada is quick changing into a heaven not solely for Khalistani militants but in addition for worldwide prison gangs. Second, the present administration is beneath the affect of those components. Third, Pakistan, which is beneath the radar of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and International Monetary Fund (IMF), is supporting these components in Canada to undertaking that its soil just isn’t used for anti-India actions. Fourth, these components try to manage the immigration system in Canada and this constitutes the primary trigger for their internecine gang warfare.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegation holding an Indian diplomat accountable for the homicide of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the chief of the banned Khalistan Tiger Force, solely based mostly on a ‘credible allegation’ is surprising. Intelligence stories are being manipulated to fulfill the Khalistani components. The 2018 report talked about threats arising from Sikh terrorists however later in 2019, these have been eliminated clearly beneath stress from Khaistani supporters. There are stories to recommend that the Canadian intelligence company (CSIS) largely is determined by the Khalistani informers. These are noticeable indicators of the Trudeau administration’s assist to the Khalistani components, who’re finishing up anti-India actions with impunity. Now, the Canadian international minister Melanie has mentioned that this occasion has created a global disaster, clearly to undertaking India in a dangerous gentle. Instead of performing against the Khalistani militants in Canada as was agreed in 2018, Trudeau is blaming India.
Nijjar was shot lifeless on the June 18, by two unidentified gunmen exterior the Gurudwara in Surrey, British Columbia. This adopted assaults on the Indian diplomatic missions and the Indian diplomats have been threatened. Neither the gunmen have been traced nor any motion taken against these concerned within the assaults or threatening the Indian diplomats. There have been stories that Nijjar was concerned within the homicide of Ripudaman Singh, one other Khalistani militant. Nijjar had additionally planted Amritpal Singh in Punjab, who at his behest led protests in Punjab, in assist of Nijjar’s agenda.
Canada has a historical past of sheltering Khalistani components for vote financial institution politics. Justin Trudeau’s father Pierre Trudeau, who was the then PM of Canada had refused handy over Talwinder Singh Parmar of Babbar Khalsa to India in 1982. Later in 1985, the Khalistani components positioned bombs within the Indian airplane Kanishka that exploded in mid-air, killing 329 passengers. In 2018, Jaspal Atwal, who was charged with trying the homicide of the then Punjab Minster Malkiat Singh in 1986, was invited to the dinner hosted by the Canadian High Commissioner to India for Trudeau. As a injury management, the invitation to Atwal was later rescinded.
Former Chief Minister of Punjab, Amarinder Singh, reacting to this concern, said that making such an allegation with none proof clearly establishes that Trudeau is taking part in vote financial institution politics. Amarinder Singh mentioned that he as the CM had refused to satisfy the then Canadian Defence Minister, Harjit Singh Sajjan, in the course of the latter’s go to as he had shut hyperlinks with the World Sikh Organisation, which is concerned in anti-India actions. He had additionally offered a listing of ten Khalistani militants, who have been in Canada.
A widely known Canadian journalist Terry Milewski has additionally identified that Trudeau is pushed by vote financial institution politics. According to him, Canada has substantial Khailstani components, who’re very nicely organised to pressurise the Canadian MPs by providing them votes in the event that they assist in glorifying terrorists or supporting their actions. Jagmeet Singh’s New Democratic Party (NDP), which helps Khalistani components, is sustaining Trudeau’s minority Government. If the NDP withdraws assist, Trudeau would lose energy to the conservative opposition. Crucially, Jagmeet Singh is a identified Pakistani supporter. This explains why the Trudeau administration is supporting the Khalistani components.
Another Canadian journalist Daniel Bordman said that this motion by Trudeau was an ‘insane behaviour.’ The opposition can also be criticising his motion and asking for credible proof. Trudeau’s personal get together’s MP too has opposed this transfer.
While Trudeau and Melanie have said that Nijjar was a Canadian citizen, it’s not identified how and when he obtained Canadian citizenship. A scrutiny of Nijjar’s profile signifies that he was concerned in fraud to acquire citizenship of Canada. He had used a false identification to enter Canada in 1997 and claimed that he was tortured in India by the police. Interestingly, the medical report listed physique components incorrect, clearly establishing that the doc offered by him was a fabricated one. When this was detected and was denied entry, he ‘married’ a girl from British Columbia, who sponsored him to immigrate as her partner. As the ladies had been sponsoring ‘husbands’ previously as nicely, this was additionally not accepted. He appealed earlier than a court docket against this choice however that was rejected. How he later grew to become a Canadian citizen is an enigma. The risk the Trudeau administration modified the choice to placate the NDP can’t be dominated out.
While Trudeau was in India attending the G20 Summit, the Khalistani components had organised a referendum in Surrey Gurudwara. Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised Trudeau about India’s concern over the rising anti-India actions in Canada and the violence that was unleashed against the Indian missions. But as an alternative of taking any motion, the Trudeau administration turned a blind eye to the Khalistani separatist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun (of the Sikh for Justice) anti-India speech through which he threatened Hindus in Canada to depart the nation and to balkanise India.
The presence of criminals and militants in Canada is inflicting internecine gang clashes inflicting threats to all the Canadian society. With the complicity of the administration, these components keep on anti-India actions with none restrictions. India’s four-level response is pragmatic: it has requested for credible proof on this case; it has conveyed its full assist in investigations; it has approached the Canadian allies with the details; and it has requested Indians in Canada to take all precautions given the threats made by the Khalistani militants. It is hoped that the listing offered by the NIA would spur the Trudeau Government to nab them. The incident has triggered a short-term setback in India-Canada relations for which all the duty lies on the Trudeau administration. The Trudeau administration wants to notice that solely a small variety of Sikhs in Canada are supportive of the Khalistani actions. The menace to the Indian diaspora may additionally show dangerous to the financial system of Canada. In its curiosity, Canada ought to instantly cease pampering the Khalistani militants and prison gangs.
