How Will The Stand-off Between India & Canada End?  

By Sandhya Ravishankar

On September 18, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on the floor of the House that there were ‘potential links’ to India in the killing of Khalistani sympathiser Hardeep Singh Nijjar. 

India reacted vehemently, denying Trudeau’s claims and demanding evidence of the allegations. Now the US has also urged India to ‘cooperate’ with the investigation. 

India, however, has accused Canada of being a safe haven for terrorists – specifically, Khalistani terrorists funded by Pakistan’s ISI. 

There appears to be no clear end to the diplomatic crisis, especially as India has put visa operations on hold in its missions and both countries have expelled a diplomat each. 

Senior journalist and Managing Editor of Canadian publication True North, Andrew Lawton, discusses the crisis between the two countries.
