    India Canada News Live Updates: Britain to continue trade talks with India despite 'serious allegations'

    Britain will continue trade talks with India despite allegations from Canada that the Indian government was involved in the murder of a Sikh separatist leader on its soil, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's spokesperson said on Tuesday, reported Reuters.

    India Canada News Live Updates: Who was Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar? 

    Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the then chief of Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF), was one of the most wanted terrorists in India and major headache for Indian agencies before his killing by two unknown assailants on June 18 outside a Gurudwara in Surrey, British Columbia.

    A key functionary in the Khalistani network, Nijjar, 46, had been declared an “individual terrorist” under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) in July 2020.

    Not only he was involved in multiple cases of targeted killings in Punjab and funding of secessionist activities, he was actively involved in instigating the youngsters to carry out anti-India activities and was in touch with Pakistani agents.

    ‘Canadian govt under pressure from from Khalistan; did nothing for Indian cause’

    It was quite evident from the NSA level meetings that the Canadian government was under pressure from Khalistan supporters and would do little to help the Indian cause. This was despite the fact that Khalistan supporters with the help of US based Sikhs For Justice, proscribed under UAPA, were openly threatening to assassinate Indian top diplomats posted in Canada with photographs of the Indian Ambassador and two Consul Generals splashed on posters and a reward on their heads.

    Instead of taking on the Khalistan radicals, drug runners and gangsters from Punjab taking shelter in Canada either under fake Portuguese passports or cooking up stories of political discrimination of Sikhs in India, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday came out openly in support of the radicals by blaming unidentified Indian agents for being involved in the killing of terrorist Nijjar outside a radical place of worship in Surrey, Vancouver.

    During the G-20 summit, the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval engaged his Australian, UK and Canadian counterparts over the rise of Sikh fundamentalism and violence against Indian assets in their respective countries. It is understood that the Australian NSA and the UK NSA reacted positively to Indian concerns but the Canadian NSA was unfazed as the New Democratic party of Khalistan supporter Jagmeet Singh supports the minority Justin Trudeau government.

    India Canada News Live Updates: When did pro-Khalistan movement emerge in Canada?

    The history of pro-Khalistan movement in Canada goes back close to 45 years. 

    1.  Immigration of Sikhs into Canada started in the first decade of the 20th century. Soldiers in the British Army passing through British Columbia were attracted by the fertile land they saw. By the 1970s, Sikhs were a visible section of Canadian society.
    2.  There was scant sentiment regarding a Sikh homeland. That changed in the 1970s.
    3.  As India conducted the Pokhran nuclear tests in Rajasthan in May 1974, it left the Canadian Government furious because the CANDU type reactors, provided by Canada for peaceful nuclear energy, had been repurposed for military use. The anger of then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, father of the incumbent, caused diplomatic ties to wither.
    4.  Unfortunately, that came as the Khalistan movement in Punjab was gaining prominence.
    5.  With generational ties to Canada, many Sikhs sought refugee status in Canada citing political persecution. Suddenly, there was an influx of Khalistanis into a country that did little to curb their separatism because of the poor relationship.
    6.  Among those who made their base in Canada, was Talwinder Singh Parmar, considered the mastermind of the terrorist bombing of Air India flight 182, the Kanishka. Based in the town of Burnaby in British Columbia, Parmar also headed the Babbar Khalsa International.

    How was pro-Khalistan leader Nijjar killed?

    Designated terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was killed in June this year in Canada's British Columbia province. Declared ‘wanted’ in four NIA cases pertaining to Sikh radicalism, Nijjar was the chief of pro-Khalistan outfit Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF). His outfit has associations with Sikh For Justice, run by another pro-Khalistan leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. 

    Nijjar was shot dead at Guru Nanak Sikh Gurudwara in the Canadian province. He became the gurudwara's president after allegedly occupying it forcibly. 

    Separatist elements have been blaming India for Nijjar's murder, however, a close confidant of the Khalistani figure has said that Canadian law enforcement agencies did not mention New Delhi while briefing him on the potential threat to his life.

    The National security and Indo-Pacific analyst at RAND Corporation, an American nonprofit global policy think tank, posted on X: “Canada’s bombshell accusation today against India could be most significant test of strength of US-India partnership since early 2000s.

    An economics professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, Vivek Dehejia termed Canada's allegations against India 'explosive'.

    In a post on X he said, "These are explosive allegations by Trudeau against India, as yet unproven. The already frayed bilateral relationship will take a nose dive, and the Indo-Canadian diaspora will be riven by this. Best for all of us to take a pause till the fact are known."

    1. Hardeep Singh Nijjar, associated with banned Indian separatist group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), held the position of 'Number 2' after Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. He hailed from Jalandhar's Bharsingh Pura village as per Punjab Police dossiers and moved to Canada in 1996.
    2.  In Canada, he began working there as a plumber, however over the past few years, his wealth saw a sudden rise, due to his involvement in pro-Khalistan activities.
    3.  Nijjar's involvement in terrorism started with his membership in Babbar Khalsa International, led by Jagtar Singh Tara. Subsequently, he established his own group, Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF). He played a significant role in identifying, connecting, training, and funding Khalistani cells in India, accumulating over 10 FIRs against him.
    4.  In 2014, Nijjar masterminded the assassination of self-proclaimed spiritual leader Baba Bhaniara. In 2015, he conducted a training camp in Canada to instruct Mandeep Singh Dhaliwal, who was subsequently dispatched to Punjab with the mission of targeting Shiv Sena leaders. Mandeep was arrested in June 2016.
    5.  In November 2020, Nijjar partnered with fellow gangster Arsh Dalla, who was also residing abroad. Together, they got involved in the murder of Manohar Lal, a follower of the Dera Sacha Sauda, which took place at Lal's office in Bhagta Bhai Ka, Bathinda, in 2021.
