Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), a pro-Khalistan organization, has released a video message threatening Canadian Hindus of indian descent. Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the group's legal representative, urged them to "leave canada and go to India" because they were "promoting violence" and "supporting their country of origin" by rejoicing in the death of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
In Surrey, british Columbia, on june 18, Nijjar, the leader of the Khalistan tiger Force, was shot and killed outside a Sikh temple. His murder led to a diplomatic dispute between india and canada after Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau said there was a "potential link" between the tragedy and indian government officials. india called his remark "absurd and motivated" and charged canada with providing safe haven to extremists and terrorists from the Khalistan region.
In addition, Pannun invited Canadian Sikhs to vote in a referendum in Vancouver on october
29 to determine whether indian
High Commissioner Verma was accountable for the murder
of Nijjar. His statement that pro-Khalistan Sikhs "have always been loyal to canada
and always sided with Canada" was false. The Hindu community in canada
is alarmed as a result of the film and is worried about intimidation and violence from pro-Khalistan extremists. The Canadian government
has been requested to take action against the threats and hate speech, according to certain Hindu leaders, who have also pleaded for peace.
