After Canada accused India of involvement in the killing of a Sikh leader in Canada, former foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari called for the international community to accept that India had become a “rogue Hindutva terrorist state.” The Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, was shot dead outside a Sikh temple in June. Nijjar supported a Sikh homeland and was designated a “terrorist” by India. Canada stated that it was actively pursuing allegations linking Indian government agents to the murder. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called any involvement by a foreign government in the killing of a Canadian citizen an unacceptable violation of sovereignty. In response, India expelled a Canadian diplomat. India dismissed the Canadian accusation as absurd and motivated and urged Canada to take legal action against anti-Indian elements operating from its soil. Bilawal criticized India’s actions and called on the international community to stand with Canada and highlight India’s atrocities. This is not the first time Bilawal has made strong criticism of the Indian leadership. In December last year, he called the Indian Prime Minister “the butcher of Gujarat.” In May this year, he visited India for a conference. Upon his return, he said he had countered the false narrative of the Indian government and exposed Delhi’s defiance of agreements. During the conference, Bilawal and his Indian counterpart did not shake hands, and there was a blame game involved.
