India-Canada Relations: Amidst the tension in relations between India and Canada, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar has said a big thing. India’s Foreign Minister assured Canada of taking action if it provides specific information regarding the murder of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He said, “We are ready to consider it.”
According to news agency ANI, while speaking at the ‘Discussion at the Council on Foreign Relations’ in New York, Jaishankar said, “We told the Canadian people that this is not the policy of the Indian government. Second, we also said that if you have something specific and if you have something relevant, let us know. We are ready to see it. The picture is not complete without some kind of context.”
Canada did not provide any evidence
The thing to be noted here is that after accusing India of the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, Canada has not yet provided any information when asked for evidence. At the same time, S Jaishankar said that a lot of organized crimes have taken place in Canada in the last few years and the Indian government has given many information to Canada in this regard.
“In the last few years, Canada has really seen a lot of organized crime related to separatist forces, organized crime, violence and extremism,” he said. All of them are mixed with great depth. We are actually talking about specifications and information. We have given them a lot of information about organized crime and the leadership that operates from Canada. There are a large number of extradition requests. There are some terrorist leaders who have been identified.”
Apart from this, the Foreign Minister expressed concern over these incidents of threats to Indian diplomats and attacks on Indian Consulates and said that these are very permissible for political reasons.
