In response to escalating tensions between India and Canada, posters advocating violence against Indian diplomats outside a Gurudwara in Surrey, Canada, have been removed following local authorities’ intervention. The move comes after the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada earlier this year, which led to accusations by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau against India.
The decision to remove the posters was prompted by concerns over the potential misinterpretation of messages emanating from Canadian soil. Additionally, the Gurudwara has been advised against using loudspeakers for any radical announcements.
Gurudwara Advised Against Radical Announcements and Anti-Diplomat Posters
Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the 45-year-old chief of the banned Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) and one of India’s most wanted terrorists, was fatally shot outside a Gurudwara in Surrey, Canada, by two unidentified assailants. Prime Minister Trudeau’s allegations of Indian government involvement in the murder were met with denials from New Delhi, resulting in the expulsion of an Indian official from Canada and a subsequent reciprocal expulsion of a senior Canadian diplomat.
Furthermore, The Intercept, a media outlet, has published a startling report alleging that FBI agents met with Khalistani elements in America, warning them of potential threats to their lives. These warnings highlighted the risks faced by Khalistani individuals, adding another layer of complexity to the situation.
