India dismisses Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s claims that a Khalistani terrorist was killed and expelled a Canadian diplomat, calling them “absurd and motivated”

<p>The Indian Ministry of External Affairs vehemently denied the charges, calling them “absurd” and “motivated,” after Canada on Monday expelled a senior Indian ambassador as part of an investigation into a possible connection between the Indian government and the assassination of a Khalistani terrorist. A top Canadian ambassador was ordered to leave India within the next five days after India chose to remove him in reprisal.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-190515″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-19t182902.590.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 2023 09 19t182902.590″ width=”1500″ height=”843″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-19t182902.590.jpg 299w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-19t182902.590-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px” title=”India dismisses Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's claims that a Khalistani terrorist was killed and expelled a Canadian diplomat, calling them "absurd and motivated" 3″></p>
<p>“We have seen and disapprove of the statements made in the Canadian Parliament by the Foreign Minister and Prime Minister. Allegations that the Indian government participated in any act of violence in Canada are preposterous and irrational.After the chief of Indian intelligence in Canada was expelled, the MEA released a statement that said, “We are a democratic polity with a strong commitment to rule of law.”</p>
<p>The High Commissioner of Canada to India was called today and briefed of the Indian government’s intention to remove a senior Canadian diplomat stationed there hours after the Indian diplomat was expelled. “Within the following five days, the relevant diplomat is required to depart India. The decision reflects the government of India’s increasing concern about Canadian diplomats’ meddling in our domestic affairs and their participation in anti-Indian actions, according to a statement from MEA.</p>
<p>On June 18, a gunman shot and killed Sikh activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in front of a Sikh cultural center in Surrey, British Columbia. During the G20 conference in New Delhi last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly discussed the issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that he requested Modi’s participation in the probe and informed Modi that any involvement by the Indian government would be unacceptable.</p>
<p>A new low has been reached in India-Canada relations as Khalistan advocates’ rallies intensify. India has already emphasized several times the danger that radicals from Khalistan represent to the Indian diaspora. After Nijjar was killed in July of this year, India urged Canada to take swift action against radicals from Khalistan who intended to organize protest marches to the Indian embassies in Toronto and Vancouver.</p>
<p>Trudeau reaffirmed his nation’s commitment to protecting the right to peaceful protest at the recently finished G20 meeting. He also reaffirmed his nation’s willingness to stop violence and fight bigotry.</p>
