What are terrorists wanted by India doing in Canada? Amit Shah on Nijjar killing

On Thursday, Home Minister Amit Shah responded to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau\’s claims regarding the potential involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Khalistani separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Shah reiterated India\’s stance, rejecting the accusations related to the June 18 incident in Surrey. Instead, he raised questions about the presence of individuals wanted for terrorism in India being in Canada, stating, \”Why are terrorists wanted in India found in Canada?\”

During the Agenda AajTak 2023 session, Shah firmly refuted the allegations and urged the Canadian government to provide an explanation for the presence of individuals wanted for terrorism in India on Canadian soil.

In 2020, India officially classified Nijjar as a terrorist, leading to heightened tensions between India and Canada after Trudeau\’s accusations on September 18. In response, India temporarily suspended the issuance of visas to Canadian citizens. Last month, over a month after the suspension, India partially resumed visa services in Canada.
