Trudeau’s Allegations: India Linked to Sikh Leader’s Killing – Discover the Controversy

In a surprising revelation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the House of Commons and claimed that the Indian government orchestrated the assassination of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar on Canadian soil earlier this year. Nijjar, 45, was shot in June while sitting in his truck in a busy parking lot near a Sikh temple in Surrey, British Columbia, a city near Vancouver, according to the BBC. Trudeau stated that Canadian intelligence has connected India to the killing and emphasized that any involvement of a foreign government in the murder of a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil is an unacceptable violation of sovereignty.

Trudeau confronted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi directly about the issue during the Group of 20 summit. According to the New York Times, he accused Modi’s government of not doing enough to suppress the “anti-India activities of extremist elements” in Canada, referring to the Sikh separatist movement. Nijjar had been an advocate for an independent Sikh nation that included parts of India’s Punjab state. Although India had labeled him a terrorist associated with a militant separatist group, his supporters denied these claims. Later, the foreign minister announced the expulsion of an Indian intelligence officer in response to the incident. (Read more Canada stories.)
