India Strongly Rejects Trudeau's Allegations Of Involvement In Nijjar Shooting
- Read about India's firm stance against Canadian PM Trudeau's allegations of involvement in the Hardeep Singh Nijjar shooting.
- The Ministry of External Affairs dismisses the claims as 'absurd' and 'motivated.'
The MEA release emphasized that any allegations of the Indian government's involvement in acts of violence in Canada are baseless and driven by ulterior motives. It noted that similar allegations had previously been made by Trudeau to the Indian Prime Minister and had been unequivocally rejected.
Furthermore, the release highlighted India's commitment to democracy and the rule of law. It argued that such unsubstantiated allegations divert attention from the presence of Khalistani terrorists and extremists who have found refuge in Canada, posing a constant threat to India's sovereignty and territorial integrity. India expressed longstanding concerns about the Canadian government's inaction in addressing this matter.
The release also pointed out that Canadian political figures have openly shown sympathy for these elements, which remains a significant concern for India. It underscored that Canada has a history of tolerating various illegal activities, including murders, human trafficking, and organized crime, and rejected any attempts to link the Indian government to such developments.
In conclusion, the MEA called upon the Canadian government to take swift and effective legal action against anti-India elements operating from Canadian soil. It reiterated that India vehemently rejects any association with these events. Trudeau had accused the Indian government of involvement in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was wanted in India and was shot outside a Gurdwara in Canada's Surrey. Trudeau asserted that such foreign government involvement on Canadian soil was unacceptable and against the principles of democratic societies, and he mentioned coordinating with Canadian allies on the matter.
