In another attack on Canada, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has accused the country of harboring extremist elements and stated that India has conveyed its concerns to the United States. The ongoing dispute between India and Canada began when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that “Indian government agents” were involved in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia in June. During a discussion at a think tank in Washington, DC, Jaishankar responded to a question by saying that the allegations made by the Canadian Prime Minister were inconsistent with India’s policy and that if the Canadian government had any relevant and specific information, India would be open to investigating it. However, Jaishankar criticized Canada for its permissive attitude towards terrorists, extremists, and individuals who openly advocate violence. He claimed that Canada has provided operating space for these individuals due to the political pressures it faces. According to Jaishankar, India’s tensions with Canada predate Trudeau’s statement, as the country has become a breeding ground for organized crime, human trafficking, secessionism, violence, and terrorism.
