Canada has released a bit of sensitive information this week. The reports say that the Canadian Government has information that links the Government of India to the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
Nijjar was a leader of a Sikh separatist group. The Canadian government has stated that it sources the murder as having connections to agents of the Indian Government.
This is the kind of development that could start an uproar among democratic allies.
Currently, India is enjoying quite a strategic position. In the global diplomatic scenario, the United States is seeking to team up with India to balance out China’s power over the world economy.
The Canadian PM Trudeau’s attack puts India in a position of controversy. This comes sometime after India hosted the G20 Summit in its capital New Delhi.
Stephanie Carvin is an expert and a professor of international relations at Ottawa’s Carleton University.
According to her, “India is important in Western calculations for balancing China, and Canada is not.”
“This really does put Canada offside among all other Western countries,” she added.
The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, delivered an official statement on Monday.
He stated that Canada was “actively pursuing credible allegations” of Indian involvement in the matter. He has stated suspicions that agents from India were involved in the murder of Canadian citizen Hardeep Singh Nijjar in June.
