The killing of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was a Canadian citizen, in June in Surrey, with the world pointing fingers to India's top intelligence agent over the matter, has exposed the Indian Govt cruelties. As reported the deceased Nijjar was a staunch supporter of Khalistan, a separate home for Indian Sikhs, and was declared by India as a "terrorist" in 2020. Though he had denied the charges of terrorism against him, but the He had denied those charges, but the Indian Govt did not accept his stand. One would agree with the Canadian government, which claims that it has credible evidence regarding the involvement of Indian government in Nijjar's murder. After the Canadian government's strong response to the killing of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada, countries around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, are expressing concern. 

The three countries have taken this issue seriously and have supported the Canadian government in separate statements. vowed to stay in touch and supported calls for an investigation. US National Security Council spokesperson called for Hardeep Singh's killers to be brought to justice, according to British Foreign Minister James Cleverly to Canada. An investigation into the killing should be allowed as Australia has expressed serious concerns over the allegations made by the Canadian government.  Canada, which has the largest number of Sikhs after India, is continuously protesting this incident, while the Indian government, instead of cooperating in the investigation of the aforementioned murder, summoned the Canadian diplomat in New Delhi and reprimanded him and ordered him to leave the country. 

This openly irresponsible attitude and brazenness of India is the latest proof of the veneer of secularism on its face, which has been making life difficult for its citizens belonging to minorities since day one. The British Foreign Minister at that time He is participating in the United Nations General Assembly, where he also discussed the murder case of the Sikh leader during the meeting with the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and stressed to get to the bottom of the matter. Apparently, the Indian official involved in the incident was the head of its secret agency RAW in Canada.  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the Indian government's move to kill a Sikh leader as an unacceptable violation of its national sovereignty four days ago and ordered the agents of the RAW to leave the country. Due to the humanitarian atrocities of the Indian government and on the other hand, wherever Sikhs live in the world, with the help of secret agency RAW, 18 people of Sikh leaders have been killed abroad so far. The upper castes did not forgive the lower caste Hindus living in their own country. Justin Trudeau raised the issue of Hardeep Singh's murder at the G20 summit and demanded an investigation into the incident, which took place on June 18 in Vancouver, Canada.

He was killed in front of Gurdwara. Hardeep Singh advocated the establishment of an independent Sikh state in Indian Punjab and was accused by the Indian government of carrying out terrorist attacks, which he denied.  Acting Hindutva and torturing minorities, using RAW abroad, the recent disclosure of the Canadian government has opened the door to what Pakistan has repeatedly expressed in various forums.   says that our claim of India's involvement in the murder of Hardeep Singh Najjar has been proven The leader of Sikhs for Justice Gurpatwant Singh true and the conspiracy of Indian intelligence to be involved in the murder has been exposed worldwide.  Participating in the assembly, one is sure that he will raise this issue in his address and express Pakistan's concern about India's terrorist activities, for which Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia are already on the same page. With these actions, the face of India's cruelties has exposed in front of the world, but the world is still  silent on the issue of Indian Muslims and innocent Kashmiris in Occupied Kashmir and Indian oppression of Kashmiris for the past seventy years.  After the killing of Sikh leader in Canada, it has proved that India is involved in killing and execution of the minorities including Kashmiris and Muslims, and the world should come to their rescue. In the states of India where the Modi's BJP government is in power, plans have been made to evict Muslim families. According to the Modi government's false claims, these people are illegal occupants. That's why their possession is being abolished, while the reality is quite the opposite.

In the Indian state of Uttarakhand, the state high court also participated in the atrocities and issued a unilateral decision, according to which the process of demolishing the houses of about 4500 Muslims and displacing these families was started. These Muslim families claim that they have been living here for more than seventy years. They have bought these lands by paying the price and then built houses on them. They have proper registries and legal documents for these lands. But they were not heard in the court and the court gave an unjust verdict and allowed the government to demolish our personal and legal houses.  It should also be clear that in the states where the process of demolishing the houses of the Muslims has been started, there are also the houses of the Hindus, but they are not being demolished. The main objective is to promote Hinduism and give power to the terrorist organization called RSS. The judiciary is also an equal participant in this conspiracy.  According to confirmed reports, thousands of Muslim houses have been bulldozed in various cities and towns of the said state. Meanwhile, in the northeastern state of Assam, where the BJP is in power, thousands of Muslim houses are being demolished in the name of encroachment.

There, only the houses of the Muslims are being demolished while, whose number is around five thousand. The BJP government of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh is demolishing Muslim houses in the city of Ujjain. In the Indian states of Uttarakhand, Assam and Madhyapradesh, thousands of innocent Muslim families have been deprived of their personal and legal homes and displaced. This heinous process of eviction of Muslims is not only in India, but the Modi government has also continued in Occupied Kashmir.  There is a slight awareness about the Kashmir cause at world level, but the world should spring into real action to save the Kashmiris.
