India: A suspected group of Sikh separatists have defaced the Hindu religious Gauri Shankar Temple in Brampton of Greater Toronto. This incident of defacing in Canada follows a similar incident in Melbourne. In the Australian incident, Khalistani separatists vandalized the Shri Shiva Vishnu Temple. In both instances, the Indian Embassy in both nations reached out to the respective governments with their concerns.
The Sikh Separatists are active in several other parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany. The government of India has expressed their disappointment over the International government’s inaction following these incidents
In Canada, Indian Embassy expressed its concerns to Global Affairs, Canada. Separately, they also urged the local law enforcement agencies to initiate action against the entities responsible. Meanwhile, the Embassy also expressed concerns on the part of the government of India to the Trudeau-led government.
Reportedly, the Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken up the issue with these governments. However, the governments tend to justify the actions of the separatist groups on the grounds of freedom of speech.
Accordingly, the National Security Establishments of India strongly believe that the government is not taking adequate action against the perpetrators of violence and terror against the Indian community. The agencies think that the governments mentioned above are doing this to keep the Indian government on tenterhooks and defame them by victimizing the minority communities.
The Hindustan Times reports that Sikh Separatists are active in Vancouver. However, the situation in the said Canadian state is under control.
Meanwhile, Pakistani Deep State and Diplomatic establishment are supporting the Anti-India narrative. Accordingly, several Khalistani activists have found shelter in Lahore. From there, these entities raise funds through drugs and weapon smuggling.
Notably, India has taken up the issue of taking action against the Sikhs for Justice with the United States. The country remains blunt with the UK and Canada for their inaction regarding the Sikh-Saperatists
