US President Joe Biden Shouldn’t interfere in the internal affairs of India and Canada
New Delhi : In recent days, there has been a significant international uproar over a statement made by Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Parliament. Trudeau had stated that the Indian government was involved in the assassination of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Nijjar in Canada in recent days. Following this, there has been a growing diplomatic dispute between the two countries. The Indian government also summoned the Canadian High Commissioner in India. Furthermore, India imposed restrictions on visas for Canadian citizens traveling to India.
When the Canadian government saw India’s stern response, Justin Trudeau clarified his statement, saying that he did not intend to create a dispute between the two countries. Trudeau mentioned that his statement had been presented internationally in a misleading manner.
It’s interesting to note that even the President of the United States appears to be siding with Canada on this matter. This became evident when President Biden discussed Khalistani issues and Canada-India relations during the G20 Summit in India. What’s noteworthy is why the United States has gotten involved in these espionage-related matters between India and Canada. Hasn’t the United States, on previous occasions, refused to act on suspicions and intelligence, even when it came to its arch-enemy, Osama bin Laden, who was hiding in Pakistan for years? The United States has waged wars in the past based on mere suspicions. Now, it seems that America is meddling in the internal affairs of India and Canada’s bilateral relations.
Let’s consider, for a moment, that India did indeed eliminate Nijjar, who was on India’s most-wanted terrorist list. What would be wrong with that? Shouldn’t the Indian government want to eliminate an enemy who is plotting against India while residing on foreign soil? However, if the Indian government categorically states that it had no involvement in Nijjar’s assassination, then instead of raising questions, the focus should be on conducting a thorough investigation.
