India Expels Canadian Ambassador Over Sikh Separatist Murder Allegations

India Expels Canadian Ambassador

The Indian government has expelled the Canadian ambassador, and the UK is actively communicating with Canada regarding “grave allegations” implicating Indian government agents in the murder of a Sikh separatist leader in Canada.

In June, someone fatally shot Hardeep Singh Nijjar, whom India had designated as a “terrorist” in 2020, outside a Sikh temple in Vancouver. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that the Canadian government is “actively pursuing credible allegations” linking Indian government agents to the murder.

India has denied the allegations, calling them “absurd and motivated.” The Indian government has also accused Canada of harboring Sikh separatists who are plotting to overthrow the Indian government.

The expulsion of the Canadian ambassador is a significant escalation in tensions between India and Canada. While the two nations share a lengthy history of strong connections, recent years have seen tensions escalate due to contentious matters such as Sikh separatism and human rights concerns within India.

UK in Close Touch with Canada

The UK has said that it is “concerned” about the allegations of Indian involvement in the murder of Nijjar. The UK government has also said that it is “in close touch” with the Canadian government and is “monitoring the situation closely.”


The expulsion of the Canadian ambassador is a serious diplomatic move. It is a sign that India is very angry with Canada over the allegations of Indian involvement in the murder of Nijjar. It is also a sign that India is willing to take action to protect its interests.

The UK’s close contact with Canada over the allegations is also significant. It shows that the UK is concerned about the allegations and that it is taking them seriously. It also shows that the UK is supportive of Canada in this dispute.

We still need to determine the veracity of the allegations against India. Nonetheless, if they indeed prove to be true, they could potentially significantly affect India’s relations with both Canada and the UK.

Potential Impact on Relations

If the allegations against India are proven true, it could damage relations between India and Canada. Canada may impose sanctions on India or take other steps to punish the Indian government. India may retaliate by taking steps against Canada, such as reducing trade or expelling more Canadian diplomats.

The allegations could also damage relations between India and the UK. The UK has been trying to build closer ties with India in recent years, but the allegations could derail these efforts. The UK may also be forced to impose sanctions on India if the allegations are proven true.

The allegations of Indian involvement in the murder of a Sikh separatist leader in Canada are a serious matter. If proven true, these allegations could significantly affect the relations between India, Canada, and the UK.
