Relations between India and Canada have soured following Trudeau’s allegations that Indian agents were involved in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. As the dispute between the two countries continues, the Canadian Prime Minister has again come forward with the accusation that India is handling things unilaterally.
Hardeep Singh contacted the Indian government after Nijjar’s murder. Trudeau said he contacted India and asked for an investigation because of a tip-off that Indian agents were clearly involved in the murder. But India is not cooperating with the investigation. He asked allies like the United States to intervene in the matter. He clarified that the incident was related to the sovereignty of the country.
Canada wants to work constructively with India on this critical issue. For this the Government of India and allied countries were approached. But India’s stand of non-cooperation without taking the investigation seriously is a violation of the Vienna Convention. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that India has removed more than 40 Canadian diplomats.
Countries including the United States have been approached against this serious violation of international law and democratic sovereignty. Nijjar’s killing on Canadian soil is a serious one. On the basis of sufficient evidence, it was concluded that Indian agents were behind this murder. But Trudeau accused India of turning its back on all kinds of investigations. The Foreign Ministry is yet to respond to Trudeau’s latest remarks. In case of continuing threats, India is of the position that it does not want the old relationship with Canada.
