Canadian Sikh politicians slam video against Hindu
Toronto, Sep 23, 2023: As per media reports Top Sikh Canadian politicians Harjeet Singh Sajjan and Jagjeet Singh have slammed a video released by pro-Khalistan Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) group asking Hindus of Indian-origin to leave the country, stating that the community is “welcome” and “safe” in the country.
“To Hindu Canadians and Indians from all backgrounds: Anyone who says you do not deserve to be safe & welcomed in your home does not embody the values of freedom & kindness we hold dear as Canadians. Do not let others delegitimise or question your place and love for Canada,” Harjit Singh Sajjan, Minister of Emergency Preparedness, said.
In a post shared on X, Jagmeet Singh wrote: “To Hindus across Canada… This is your home and you deserve to be here. Anyone that suggests otherwise does not reflect the values of inclusion, compassion and kindness we hold close as Canadians”.
After Trudeau’s accusations against the Indian government, Jagmeet pledged to seek justice for Nijjar.
The offensive video, which now has been deleted, came just after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused New Delhi of involvement in the killing of Khalistani Hardeep Singh Nijjar, resulting in tit-for-tat expulsions of senior diplomats.
Released early this week, Pannu, can be heard saying in the 45-second video clip: “Indo-Canadian Hindus, you have repudiated your allegiance to Canada and Canadian constitution. Your destination is India. Leave Canada, go to India”.
Pannu has been holding referendums in Canada, calling for an independent homeland for Sikhs. The next referendum is scheduled to be held on October 29 in Surrey.
