Key Insights

Concerns about Canadian Response and Actions

🤔 Canada’s portrayal of Jaspal Atwal as an innocent victim raises questions about their attempt to deny his past as a goon and terrorist.

🇨🇦 Canada should draw a line and make the incitement of violence and the glorification of terrorism a criminal offense, similar to what other countries have done.

💣 Correcting Canadian law to address the issue of promoting individuals involved in violent acts as martyrs would be a significant step in confronting the Kalistanis and showing seriousness in resolving the tensions.

😡 The speaker criticizes the lack of empathy in the reaction to the death of a person, highlighting the insensitivity towards human life.

🇮🇳 Panoon’s propaganda includes burning the Indian flag, urging soldiers to desert the Indian army and fight for China, and encouraging Sikhs to seize Delhi Airport.

🤔 Canadian politicians remain silent on posters glorifying the Air India bomber and other killers, raising questions about their stance on freedom of speech and condemnation of such activities.

💥 It is suggested that Canada should make the endorsement of terror, incitement of violence, and glorification of terrorists and terrorism illegal, demonstrating their commitment to combating these issues and showing India that they understand the gravity of the situation.

Q1: What was the controversy surrounding Justin Trudeau’s statement in the House of Commons?

A1: The controversy surrounding Justin Trudeau’s statement in the House of Commons arose from his remarks regarding recent events in Canada. The statement led to discussions and debate among the public. Canadian journalist Terry Mileski found Trudeau’s statement absurd and unbelievable, further adding to the controversy.

Q2: Is there any evidence to support the involvement of the Indian government in a contract killing in Surrey?

A2: Currently, there is no concrete evidence to support the involvement of the Indian government in a contract killing in Surrey. While Surrey has experienced instances of organized crime and contract killings in the past, the idea of the Indian government carrying out an extrajudicial murder operation seems highly unlikely. The risk of tarnishing the Indian government’s reputation would be too high. It is important to note that the identity and motive of the alleged killer, known as Ninja, remain unknown at this time.

Q3: What is the issue with the glorification of terrorism and propaganda in Canada?

A3: One of the issues discussed in the video is the glorification of terrorism and propaganda within certain groups in Canada. It is highlighted that there is a feeling among some Canadians that terrorism in Khalistan is not their problem. However, there have been instances where individuals engaged in pro-terrorist propaganda, such as a Temple president giving a speech praising the assassination of public officials. Additionally, there is mention of a diorama replicating the celebration of the assassination of Indira Gandhi. Such actions are seen as promoting violence and terrorism.

Q4: Why has Canada been reluctant to extradite individuals to India?

A4: Canada’s reluctance to extradite individuals to India stems from concerns about human rights abuses in Indian prisons. The video mentions that a standing committee of Canada’s parliament called for the country to withdraw from extradition treaties with several countries, including India. There is also fear of backlash from the organized and well-funded Khalistani Lobby in Canada. Furthermore, extradition requests from Indian state police forces often rely heavily on statements made by accused individuals in custody. Concerns regarding the recording of testimony and alleged abuses in Indian prisons, particularly in Punjab, have contributed to Canada’s hesitation in returning individuals to India.
