New Delhi: India has retaliated strongly to the Canadian government’s allegations over the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Najjar. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has termed the Canadian government’s allegations as baseless and baseless, saying that we believe in the law. India has also demanded action from Canada against terrorist elements. India has said that such statements have been made to divert attention from the Khalistanis.
Allegations of India’s involvement are baseless
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, ‘We have noted and rejected the statement made by the Prime Minister of Canada in his Parliament and the statement by his Minister of Foreign Affairs. Allegations of Indian government involvement in any acts of violence in Canada are ludicrous and provocative. Similar allegations were leveled by the Prime Minister of Canada against our Prime Minister and were flatly rejected. We are a democratic government with a strong commitment to the rule of law.
‘Canadian government’s inaction alarming’
Targeting the Canadian government, the Ministry of External Affairs said, “Such baseless allegations are made in an attempt to divert attention from Khalistani terrorists and extremists who have been given sanctuary in Canada and who threaten India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.” There are risks. The Canadian government’s inaction on this issue has been a longstanding and ongoing concern. “The open expression of sympathy for such elements by Canadian political figures is deeply troubling.”
‘Such activities are nothing new in Canada’
In a scathing attack on Canada, the statement said, “The place given to many illegal activities, including murder, human trafficking and organized crime, is nothing new in Canada.” We reject any attempt to link the Government of India with such developments. We urge the Government of Canada to take prompt and effective legal action against all anti-Indian elements operating from its soil.
On the sidelines of the G20 summit, PM Modi had raised the issue of Khalistani terrorists with Trudeau.
The Canadian Prime Minister made a statement in Parliament.
Let us tell you that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a disappointing statement after the reprimand in the case of Khalistani terrorists at the G20 summit. The Prime Minister of Canada said in the House of Commons in Ottawa that Canadian security agencies are investigating the link between the Indian government and the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Najjar. He had said that the involvement of any other country or foreign government in the killing of a Canadian citizen on his soil will not be tolerated. With the Canadian Prime Minister’s statement, the tension between the two countries has started to increase once again.
Najjar was killed outside the Gurudwara.
On June 18, Khalistani terrorist Najjar was shot dead while standing in the parking lot of a Gurudwara in British Columbia, Canada. Najjar was a resident of Jalandhar in Punjab and was accused of spreading terrorism in the state. In 2020, India declared him a terrorist and in 2022, the NIA announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh on him. Najjar not only spread terrorism in Punjab but also helped the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Along with helping terrorists, his job was to provide supplies and money.
