India-Canada Tensions : Allegations & Diplomatic Fallout.



  Sep 29, 2023

India-Canada Diplomatic Row over the Nijjar Case



Background and Allegations

Tensions between India and Canada escalated following the killing of Canadian Khalistani activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Canada alleges that Indian "government agents" were responsible, while India blames Khalistani extremism in Canada.

Diplomatic Implications

Both countries have expelled each other's diplomats.

Trade talks are on hold, and India has suspended all visas to Canadians.

International Pressure

"Five Eyes" allies have suggested that India must cooperate, putting added pressure on the situation.

No Concrete Evidence Yet

Despite two visits by the Canadian National Security Adviser, no substantial evidence has been shared with India to substantiate the allegations.

Multi-Layered Grievances

The issues date back to the 1980s, involving claims on both sides relating to Khalistani extremism, rights violations, and intelligence operations.

Immediate Consequences

Trade, travel, and tourism ties have been significantly affected, impacting students, businesses, and diaspora communities.

Moving Forward

India has indicated willingness to cooperate if Canada provides verifiable evidence for its allegations.

The diplomatic row has reached a tipping point. Both countries must work urgently to bring relations back from this precipice, starting with transparent sharing of evidence and open dialogue.
