Recent developments have ignited tension between Canada and India as both countries are at odds over the controversial killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
Nijjar, a Canadian citizen of Indian origin, is believed to be involved in several deadly attacks in Punjab, India. The Indian government has accused him of leading a terrorist group responsible for numerous acts of violence in the region.
The issue has created a diplomatic rift between the two nations. Canada has refused to extradite Nijjar to India, citing concerns over human rights and fair trial. This has led to a war of words between the governments and strained bilateral relations.
The Indian government argues that Nijjar is an extremist who poses a threat to national security. They have provided evidence linking him to various terrorist activities, including bombings and assassinations. However, Canada maintains that there is insufficient evidence to support these claims.
The case has also caused controversy within Canada’s Sikh community. While some members support Nijjar and believe he is being targeted unfairly, others condemn his alleged involvement in violence. The issue has reignited debates about extremism and the role of Sikh separatist movements in Canada.
