India slams Canada for giving political space to Khalistani separatists

India slams Canada for giving political space to Khalistani separatists

New Delhi, June 21 (UNI) India on Friday slammed the move of the Canadian parliament of observing a one-minute silence in the memory of slain Khalistani extremist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, and said New Delhi “opposes any moves giving political space to extremism and those advocating violence”.
MEA spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal, answering questions in his media briefing, also said that India has strongly protested with the Canadian High Commission here over a so-called citizen’s court held outside the Indian Consulate General in Vancouver where PM Modi was shown behind bars and being “tried” in court.
“We naturally oppose any moves giving political space to extremism and those advocating violence… The question of political space being given to people who advocate violence and anti-India agenda is the real problem (in Canada), and therefore we have time and again been insisting that the Canadian authorities take action against them,” he said.
