Dr. Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst): This is not the first time that Indians have been found involved in terrorist and subversive activities in other countries. Pakistan, in the past, expelled many RAW agents that were involved in terrorist activities in the country. The EU DisinfoLab Lab fully exposed the involvement of Indian agents in more than 127 countries, involved in disinformation, subversive activities and other nefarious acts. India is trying to befool and mislead the world while killing anti-Indian people living in different countries. After the killing of Indira Gandhi, Indian government launched a systematic campaign to exterminate the Sikh dissidents. We appreciate the courage of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who raised the issue and took India to task for killing a Canadian Sikh. The diplomatic action of Canada is enough to show the world of true face of India. Khalistan Movement is gaining momentum with every passing day and it is going to be stronger in future. India has been persecuting all minorities, especially Muslims, on its land. The worst human rights abuses in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir also require world’s attention.
Dr. Mujahid Gilani (IR Analyst): Indian government is involved in killing of people who are against the policies of India. This time Indian nefarious designs have been fully exposed and the Canadian government has expelled Indian diplomat for alleged involvement in killing of a Sikh leader in Canada. Pakistan has been raising this issue since long and now the world has also realized this fact. India has been using various ploys to launch false flag operations against Pakistan. In February 2019, India used the pretext of Pulwama to launch an air attack on Pakistan which failed miserably. Kashmiris and Pakistani diaspora across the world have been highlighting the human rights abuses of India in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Dr. Rasheed Ahmed Khan (IR Analyst): The action of Canadian government against India at the diplomatic level is significant. It has gained the attention of world media. This development has shown the world that India is involved in nefarious activities in various countries of the world. Canada hosts a large number of Sikh diaspora and Khalistan movement has been very strong there. Sikhs have been struggling for the creation of their separate homeland in India and in recent years they have held referendums in other countries. Sikhs have faced persecution at the hands of successive Indian governments, especially since 1984 when the then Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards. Sikhs still remember the Operation Blue Star in which a large number of Sikhs were killed by Indian security forces. Now, they want to create their separate homeland, Khalistan, where they could live and exercise their faith with freedom. The Modi-led government has also intensified its crackdown against Sikhs not only in India but also against the Sikh diaspora in other countries.
