Canada move on Khalistanis threat to peace: Amarinder

Canada move on Khalistanis threat to peace: Amarinder

Chandigarh, April 14

Joining the chorus against Justin Trudeau administration for succumbing to domestic political pressure to remove all references to Khalistani extremism in its 2018 report on terrorist threats, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday described the move as a threat to Indian and global security.

In a statement, he expressed shock at the Canadian Liberal Party’s knee-jerk decision, which “is clearly aimed at protecting its political interests in an election year”. “It could have serious consequences for Indo-Canadian relations in the long run. Trudeau was playing with fire with his decision to assuage inflamed domestic passions through this ill-considered move,” he added.

The CM pointed out that he had given “proof” to the Canadian PM during the latter’s India visit of his country’s soil being used to spread the separatist Khalistani ideology against a friendly country. He dubbed the erasure of the various references to Khalistan and Khalistani organisations from the latest threat report as “an unpardonable act in the eyes of the peace-loving global community”.

Such an act amounted to endorsement of the terror activities and de facto promotion of extremism, he said.

Reference to extremists removed

Toronto: The Canadian government led by PM Justin Trudeau has removed a reference to Sikh extremism from its 2018 report on terrorism, which had earlier mentioned it as one of the top five terrorist threats to the country. The updated version of the “2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada” was released on Friday. The language in the report was changed to remove any mention of religion, instead discussing the threat posed by “extremists who support violent means to establish an independent state within India”, it reported.
