Canada’s top diplomat expelled


New Delhi. Taking strict retaliatory action against Canada, India has expelled one of its senior diplomats. Canada’s High Commissioner to India was summoned today and informed about the Government of India’s decision to expel a senior Canadian diplomat based in India, the Ministry of External Affairs said. That diplomat has been asked to leave India within the next five days. The name of that diplomat has not been revealed yet. The Ministry of External Affairs said that this decision reflects the growing concern of the Government of India over the interference of Canadian diplomats in our internal affairs and their involvement in anti-India activities.

Canada on Monday expelled a senior Indian diplomat for his alleged involvement in the murder of Khalistan Tiger Force chief Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada. Which is enough to worsen the already bad relations between the two countries. Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Jolie alleged that India’s top diplomat had ‘credible links’ to the murder of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Earlier, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, while speaking in Parliament, expressed his ‘deep concern’ on this matter.

Trudeau claimed that he had raised those concerns personally and directly with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Trudeau said that the killing of a Canadian citizen on the country’s soil is an unacceptable violation of our sovereignty. The Indian government has rejected Canadian PM Trudeau’s claims as ‘absurd and motivated’. New Delhi has also urged Canada to take effective and swift legal action against all anti-India elements operating from its soil.
It is noteworthy that the history of support for the separatist ideology of Khalistan in Canada is about 40 years old. When the Khalistan Movement was growing rapidly in Punjab, many Sikhs sought refugee status in Canada citing political persecution. This led to a sudden influx of Khalistanis into a country which did nothing to stop their separatist movement.
