The Justin Trudeau administration supports India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, according to High Commissioner Cameron MacKay on Thursday, amid a rise in anti-Indian activities in Canada.
During his visit to the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in the capital, the envoy was questioned about the steps the Canadian government was doing to deal with the Khalistani organisation, which is outlawed in India.
India recently sent a demarche to the Canadian government requesting that it put an end to the November 6th “Khalistan referendum” that is being planned in Ontario by the banned group. The Center has called on the government of Canada to take action against individuals who incite hatred and violence against the biggest democracy in the world.
Today, in answer to how Canada was handling the rising anti-India elements in his nation, MacKay replied that all faiths are welcome there. The High Commissioner reiterated, “In Canada, we love people of all faiths,” in response to a question about how Canada handled the growing anti-India sentiment in his country.
The High Commissioner MacKay reiterated “All faiths are welcome in Canada” three times when asked about the so-called referendums being held by “Anti India” organisations. The so-called referendum held by separatist organisations has been discussed with the Canadian High Commission in Delhi as well as with Canadian authorities, the External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said earlier in response to a media inquiry.
According to him, India has made it plain that it would continue to raise these problems in New Delhi, Ottawa, and other places.
