The situation was calm for some days. But on July 8, the supporters of Khalistan started preparing to stop the chaos by going to the streets again in Canada in the style of ‘Khalistani Freedom Rally’. Sikh separatists had earlier threatened to besiege all Indian missions in Canada on August 15, i.e. India’s Independence Day. This time their continuous campaign started in British Columbia by printing posters against Indian diplomats.
Along with ‘Kill India’, this time the poster has ‘Wanted’ written in big letters. Several videos of posters being put up in different cities have also gone viral on social media. Naturally, Canada and the officials of the Indian embassy working in that country are looking at the crimson cloud.
Sikh separatists in Canada have long been accused of carrying out anti-India activities for no reason. In the past few years, many temples in Canada have been attacked by pro-Khalistan. It is alleged that Pakistan is also behind it. But suddenly Indian diplomats are being targeted why? The incident actually started around an incident on June 19.
Khalistan Tiger Force chief Hardeep Singh Nijjar was killed by unidentified assailants in a parking lot in Vancouver. Although the Canadian police called it a ‘gang war’, pro-Khalistanists claimed that Indian High Commissioner to Canada Sanjay Sharma and Consul General Apoorva Srivastava were behind it. Before the ‘Khalistani Freedom Rally’, all the ‘Kill India’ posters in Canada had the pictures and addresses of the two Indian diplomats printed on them. New Delhi strongly protested the matter. Canada also assures Indian diplomats of overall security. However, there has been an uproar over the new ‘wanted’ poster of pro-Khalistan.
