Canadian MP Jagmeet Singh, who is said to be supporting separatist activities, has once again given a provocative statement against India. This Canadian MP has spewed venom against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Let us tell you that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had said in Parliament on Monday that the Indian government has a hand in the murder of a Sikh activist. The government there has expelled a top Indian diplomat from the country amid investigation into Trudeau’s allegations. Trudeau had said in Parliament that Canadian intelligence agencies are investigating allegations of Indian government involvement in the murder of pro-Khalistan Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Nijjar was shot on June 18 outside a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia.

Canadian MP Jagmeet Singh has warned PM Modi regarding this. Jagmeet tweeted, “Today we learned of allegations that agents of the Government of India murdered Hardeep Singh Nijjar – a Canadian citizen killed on Canadian soil. To all Canadians, this is a tragedy.” “This is my pledge. I will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice, including holding Narendra Modi accountable.” Let us tell you that the population of Sikhs in Canada is more than 7,70,000. This figure is two percent of the total population of the country.

India takes tit-for-tat action, expels Canadian diplomat

Hours after Canada expelled an Indian official, India on Tuesday announced the expulsion of a Canadian diplomat in a ‘tit-for-tat’ action. Canada’s High Commissioner to India Cameron Mackay was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs and informed about the decision to expel the senior Canadian diplomat.

These steps show that relations between India and Canada are worsening. Just a few days before this, both sides had decided to stop their talks regarding a bilateral free trade agreement. Relations between the two countries are tense due to the increasing activities of pro-Khalistan elements in Canada. The ministry said the decision to expel the Canadian diplomat reflects India’s growing concern over “interference by Canadian diplomats in our internal affairs and their involvement in anti-India activities”. “The diplomat concerned has been directed to leave India within the next five days,” it said in a statement.
