India Rejects Canadian Allegations, Points to Khalistani Extremists in Canada
India has firmly denied allegations made by the Canadian government, which had linked India to the assassination of Khalistani separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. In a strongly-worded statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) dismissed these allegations made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, emphasizing that such claims divert attention from the activities of Khalistani operatives residing in Canada.
The Nijjar case has become a focal point in the diplomatic tension between Canada and India. In a pointed response to Trudeau, the MEA asserted that Canada is harboring Khalistani terrorists and extremists who pose a threat to India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
