Washington, September 20
A US expert described Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s claim of a “possible link” between Indian government agents and the killing of a Khalistani leader as a “disgraceful and cynical act” and urged the US not to be part of it.
While participating in a panel discussion at the Hudson Institute think tank, Michael Rubin, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, claimed that Trudeau is playing into the hands of people who view the Khalistani movement as a movement of ego and profit.
Canada and India expelled a senior diplomat after Trudeau alleged the involvement of “Indian government agents” in the killing of prominent Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nigar, 45, in Surrey in June, allegations New Delhi flatly rejected as “ridiculous.” And “motivation.”
Nigar, the commander of the banned Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF) and one of India’s most wanted terrorists who carried a cash bounty of Rs 10 lakh on his head, was shot dead by militants outside a gurdwara in Surrey in the Canadian Western Province. British Columbia on June 18.
What is striking about Trudeau’s “shameful and cynical actions” is that while he was making a statement just now, the killing of Karima Baloch, which was allegedly carried out with Pakistani assistance, is a police matter and has not been transferred to Prime Minister Rubin’s office. He said.
“So, the question then becomes why this inconsistency, if not the populist political positions? That might help Justin Trudeau in the long run, but that’s not leadership. We really need our politicians on both sides of the aisle here and in Canada, (there) a) must “They need to be more responsible because they are playing with fire.”
Rubin said it appears that some outside hands are trying to revive the Khalistan movement.
“I don’t think it will work,” he said, adding that he does not want the United States to give legitimacy to this type of “cynical maneuvers carried out by external forces.”
“It would be wrong for us to suddenly see a separatist movement and argue that this is legitimate. And I’m less concerned about that with regard to the United States but more so with what we’re seeing in Canada now with Justin Trudeau, which is the same knee-jerk reaction that is playing into the hands of people who They view the Khalistani movement as a movement for ego, a movement for profit and politics.”
