Canadian-Sikh lawmaker vows to get ‘justice’ for terrorist Hardeep Nijjar murder

Indian-origin Canadian MP Jagmeet Singh on Monday “vowed” to seek justice over the killing of Khalistani terrorist Harjeet Singh Nijjar in Surrey in June.

Singh’s remark, shared on social media, came hours after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged that there was a “potential link” between Indian government agents and the killing of Nijjar who was the chief of the banned Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF). Trudeau’s government also expelled a senior Indian diplomat.

India rejected the claims as “absurd” and “motivated” and expelled a top Canadian diplomat in a retaliatory move.

“Today we learned of allegations that agents of the Indian Government murdered Hardeep Singh Nijjar – a Canadian killed on Canadian soil,” Jagmeet Singh, a prominent Sikh leader, tweeted. “I will leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice, including holding Narendra Modi accountable,” he further said.

His remarks drew a sharp reaction on social media. Several X users pointed out that Jagmeet Singh had hidden a reply to his post that read “Just don’t ask me to go to India”.

“Jagmeet Singh, the leader of Canada’s third largest party, is hiding replies to his tweet threatening Indian PM Modi,” wrote a user.

Another user said, “Jagmeet Singh isn’t allowed in India due to his connections to Khalistani extremists. Now his friend Justin Trudeau is being condemned by Indian media outlets for parroting Khalistani propaganda.”

Another person questioned the investigation into the killing of Nijjar. “Liberal and NDP “diplomacy” in 2023: shoot first and do the investigation later. Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh are both openly going after the Prime Minister of India. What if they are wrong? Is the “investigation” now tainted as to the “findings”? Seems very unusual,” another user posted.

Notably, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party’s minority government was formed after the 2021 election and relies on the support of the New Democratic Party (NDP) led by Jagmeet Singh.

Singh has voiced support for the Khalistani separatists on several occasions. He had even spoken against the police crackdown on Waris Punjab De chief and Khalistani separatist Amritpal Singh who was arrested in Punjab in April after evading the cops for over a month.
