Canada: India Top Source Of Foreign Interference

TORONTO, (IANS) – Prime Minister Justin Trudeaus National Security Adviser Jody Thomas has said that India is among the top sources of foreign interference in Canada.

“When I talk about foreign interference and economic security, I’m now talking about a number of state actors and non-state proxies,” Jody Thomas said at a conference organized by the Canadian Global Affairs Institute.

“This includes Russia, Iran and India. That said, the actor that comes up most on these issues, and it’s no surprise to anybody, is China,” she was quoted as saying in Toronto Star.

University of British Columbia professor Vina Nadjibulla told Toronto Star that it was “striking” that Thomas listed India along with the three other countries — a move that could hit the close India-Canada ties.

The NSA’s remarks came months after the Liberals highlighted India as part of their Indo-Pacific strategy and as a priority for establishing closer economic and scientific ties.

“The relationship we have diplomatically with India is improving rapidly, but I think we would be kidding ourselves if we were not to acknowledge some of the diaspora politics and local issues here in Canada, which will have a significant impact,” Nadjibulla said.

According to The Star, “federal agencies have indirectly warned in recent years of India exerting improper influence in Canada, but rarely by name”.

On the contrary, India has raised strong protest with the Canadian government against radical Khalistani elements organizing referendums in the North American nations and meddling in India’s domestic affairs, particularly the farmers’ protests.

Despite exhortation from India to act, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has failed to act against a new wave of Khalistani activism in Canada.

This is because Trudeau heads a minority government that is backed by the New Democratic Party (NDP), headed by Jagmeet Singh, a Khalistani sympathizer.

Singh’s NDP has 24 seats in parliament, whose support is critical for the survival of the Trudeau government.

Singh has been called out time and again on Twitter for attempting to meddle in Indian affairs, especially after he “raised concerns” over the crackdown in Punjab against Waris Punjab De’ chief and Khalistan sympathizer Amritpal Singh.

According to India Narrative, Singh has long been suspected of attempts to link Khalistani and Kashmiri separatism from his perch in Canada. He is apparently connected with prominent Khalistani and Kashmiri separatist groups based in different countries of Europe, according to media reports.

  • Canada has been a hotbed of Khalistani groups whose main agenda is to have a separate Kahalistani state in India, under the pretext that the Sikhs in Punjab and else where in India are treated as second class citizens and lack completely freedom of religion, speech and movement. An utterly nonsensical and traitorous philosophy, given that the Sikhs are one of the most progressive citizen groups in India participating in all walks of life, delivering. service to the health and security of the country. Yes, naturally the GOI will be rattled when treasonous and traitorous groups in foreign nations call for the the dismemberment of the country and protest to the nation that harbors these groups. That’s not interference in the internal affairs of these countries. It’s to raise a flag and let the Canadian government know that groups like them that propagate dangerous philosophies could cause major issues for India and potential rifts between the two countries. What if a group of folks from some of the Canadian territories go to a foreign country and start a secession group asking for a separate country for their tribes because of discrimination, violation of human rights, etc, etc, however bogus these claims can be,. Will Canada be quiet about it, no, they will protest vehemently and ask that hosting nation to intercede and put an and to such activities from their country. Is Canada then interfering in the affairs of that other nation, no, Canada is only trying to protect its sovereignty and nothing else

    Canada should look at these groups that call for secession of other countries, deport individuals who are non-citizens, and the rest, should be broadly admonished. Freedom of speech doesn’t grant the call for dismemberment of another country.
