Meanwhile recalling the incident in Canadian parliament, Chandra Arya emphasized, that the celebration of former PM Indira Gandhi’s assassination by Khalistani forces, demonstrates that ‘dark forces’ are active again.

He also emphasized, that the ideology responsible for this terror attack is still alive and kicking among few people in Canada.

‘Unfortunately, many Canadians are not aware that even today, the ideology responsible for this terrorist attack is still alive among few people in Canada. The recent celebration of the assassination of Hindu Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by Khalistan supporters, glorifying violence and hate, shows that the dark forces have been energized again and point to dreadful times ahead. Hindu Canadians are rightfully concerned. I stand in solidarity with the families of the victims of Air India bombing.’ said Chandra Arya in Canadian parliament.
