On September 19, the Indian foreign ministry strongly condemned the Canadian government’s alleged charges that the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was related to India’s envoy to Canada. This was a particularly low point for the historically cordial relationship between India and Canada.
Subsequently, the Trudeau administration gave the order for the Indian ambassador to depart Canada. As India’s foreign ministry described the Canadian claims as “absurd and motivated,” a similar reciprocation for the Canadian envoy in New Delhi is anticipated.
“We have observed and disapprove of the statements made in the Canadian Parliament by the Foreign Minister and Prime Minister. Allegations that the Indian government participated in any act of violence in Canada are unfounded and motivated, according to India’s foreign ministry.
The Indian foreign ministry said that the Canadian prime minister made similar claims about our prime minister, which were categorically denied. The stated issue of an alleged Indian role in the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar was brought up “directly” with his Indian counterpart during the G20 conference in Delhi earlier this month, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told his country’s parliament.
As a result of his decision to forego ceremonial dinners and focus only on the summit’s formal work, Trudeau was perceived as the leader who had been treated the worst during the G20 summit in Delhi. When Trudeau’s official plane experienced a mechanical issue as he was about to depart Delhi, he was forced to spend almost two days back in India.
According to India’s foreign ministry, Canada is a haven for Khalistani terrorists.
According to India’s foreign ministry, the nation has a democratic government that is firmly committed to upholding the law.
Such unfounded accusations aim to divert attention away from Khalistani terrorists and fanatics, who have received protection in Canada and continue to pose a danger to India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, it continued.
“A long-standing and ongoing problem has been the Canadian government’s passivity on this issue. It is nevertheless quite concerning that Canadian political figures have publicly voiced their support for such groups. It is not new for Canada to allow a variety of unlawful acts, including as murder, human trafficking, and organized crime. Any attempts to link the Indian government to such developments are rejected by us.
