The country of Canada has denounced the “offensive and hateful” videos asking Hindus of Indian descent to leave the country, calling them an “affront” to all Canadians and the values they uphold.
The Ministry of Public Safety of the Canadian government in a statement posted on X said, “There is no place in Canada for hate. The circulation of an online video in which Hindu Canadians are told to leave Canada is offensive and hateful, and is an affront to all Canadians and the values we hold dearly.”
The Ministry has also urged the Canadians to respect each other and follow the rule of law.
Members of “Hindu Forum Canada” have previously written to Dominic LeBlanc, Canada’s minister of public safety, asking for protection for the Hindu community in the face of specific threats from Khalistani elements. In light of recent statements by designated terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun urging all Indo-Canadian Hindus to leave the country in the wake of diplomatic tensions between the two countries over the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, the forum urged for urgent attention to the community’s grave concerns.
Canada’s Ministry of Public Safety said, “Acts of aggression, hate, intimidation or incitement of fear have no place in this country and only serve to divide us. We urge all Canadians to respect one another and follow the rule of law. Canadians deserve to feel safe in their communities”.
