New Delhi. Canada and India are face to face after the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. A diplomatic war has broken out between both the countries, but in the meantime the Canadian media has started cornering Canadian PM Justin Trudeau on this issue. Canadian media is asking questions to PM Trudeau considering it irresponsible to blame India after the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a terrorist declared by India. The media is also seeing this as Justin Trudeau’s bet amid his declining popularity. Toronto Sun has written, ‘Hardeep Singh Nijjar was no saint..’
In fact, after the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had said on Monday without showing any evidence that the agents of the Indian government were involved in the murder of Nijjar. This statement was completely rejected by India. It is being said in the Canadian media that Trudeau has raised this issue amid rapidly declining popularity in the country and if he is not able to prove it right, then the country will be brought into disrepute on the domestic and global stage.
Trudeau accused India, but could not show evidence
In the reports being published in the Canadian media, it is being said that Trudeau has shown haste in using this issue to further his domestic politics due to his falling ranking in the polls. Canada’s leading newspaper National Post wrote in its editorial, ‘It is important to remember that the allegations made by Trudeau are yet to be proven. They have so far failed to show any evidence to the people of Canada.
Nijjar was not a saint,
It was written in the Toronto Sun article that there is a need to be clear about Hardeep Singh Nijjar that he was not a saint. If he was a terrorist, as the Indian government is claiming, then the court should have decided. The Indian government is behind his murder and if Trudeau’s government still stands by its word then India should be held accountable.
Justin Trudeau’s falling popularity
The National Post cited a recent poll by the Angus Reid Institute in which Trudeau got only a 33% approval rating, while 63% people disliked him. Trudeau’s government currently remains in power with the support of the New Democratic Party with 24 MPs. The head of this party, Jagmeet Singh, is considered to be a supporter of Khalistan.
India will no longer remain silent
Canadian newspaper Toronto Sun has written that India is not going to remain silent regarding the allegations made by Canada on India. The only thing Canadians should expect from the Modi government now is that India will try to punish Canada for this allegation. Therefore, the Trudeau government should present evidence to prove the Indian government’s link with Nijjar’s murder.
