In recent developments, Canada has found itself embroiled in a sensitive international issue. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has accused Indian government agents of being involved in the  murder of  Hardeep Singh Nijjar. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the situation, highlighting Canada's diplomatic efforts and its implications on India-Canada relations.

Canada's Diplomatic Stand

Canada has taken a bold step by expelling a high-ranking Indian diplomat in response to credible allegations. Trudeau's assertion that the Indian government might be linked to Nijjar's murder has significant implications. The Canadian government has raised these concerns at the highest diplomatic levels.

Canada-India Trade Relations

Trade talks between Canada and India have come to a halt due to "certain political developments." These developments revolve around allegations of Canada's inaction against Khalistan supporters. While officials attempt to downplay the situation, it's evident that tensions persist between the two nations.

 Event in Surrey

A significant event occurred in Surrey, British Columbia, as a Khalistan Referendum event took place at a gurdwara. Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, designated as a terrorist and the founder of Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), was present at this gathering of Khalistani separatists.

Expulsion of Indian Diplomat

Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly has announced the expulsion of a high-ranking Indian diplomat as a consequence of the startling allegations. Joly has expressed concerns that if proven true, these allegations would constitute a violation of Canada's sovereignty and international diplomatic norms.

Diplomatic Outreach and Investigations

Canada's response includes a diplomatic mission to India led by Canada's national security advisor and the head of its spy service. They aim to engage their Indian counterparts and confront Indian intelligence agencies with the allegations. This situation has resulted in an active homicide investigation led by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Trudeau has  discussed the matter with US President Joe Biden. This underlines the seriousness of the issue and Canada's commitment to finding the truth.

Meeting with PM Modi

Trudeau's stance comes after a tense meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the G20 summit in India. PM Modi accused Canada of insufficient action against "anti-India activities of extremist elements," specifically referring to the Sikh separatist movement's rise in Canada.

Canada has firmly expressed its deep concerns to India's top intelligence and security officials. Trudeau emphasizes the importance of respecting sovereignty in international relations and condemns any foreign government's involvement in the killing of a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil.

Background of Hardeep Singh Nijjar

Hardeep Singh Nijjar was a Sikh leader in British Columbia, known for advocating a separate Khalistani state. Supporters claim he faced threats due to his activism, while India labeled him a terrorist and leader of a militant separatist group.

Canada has called upon India to cooperate in shedding light on this situation. Trudeau expresses the need for collaboration with Canada's allies in this ongoing investigation, underlining the importance of international cooperation.
