Canada new allegation on India calls India second biggest threat to Canadian democracy after China | India-Canada Relations: After China, India is the biggest threat to Canada

New allegation against India: Canada A new issue has come to light amid the long-standing tension between India and Canada. A high-level committee there has described India as the ‘second biggest foreign threat’ to Canada after China. According to a report by ‘Business Today’, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has also reacted to the findings of this committee. He has also stressed the government’s serious concerns about foreign interference.

It is being told that the National Security and Intelligence Parliamentary Committee (NSICOP) of Canada, which has called India the second biggest threat, has members with top security clearance from both the House of Commons and the Senate. This Canadian report has been released amid tension in India-Canada relations. Justin Trudeau has been spewing venom against India earlier also over the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar and the report that has come now can spoil the relations and atmosphere between the two countries.

Canada has already made allegations

The report said, “India has become the second largest foreign interference threat to Canada’s democratic institutions and processes, replacing Russia. India’s foreign interference efforts have gradually moved beyond countering pro-Khalistan elements in Canada. These efforts include interference in Canadian democratic systems and institutions. This includes targeting Canadian politicians, ethnic media and Indo-Canadian ethnic cultural communities.” This 84-page report of Canada contains 44 cases related to India.

No response was given by India

India has not yet responded to the allegations. Earlier, New Delhi had denied similar Canadian claims and accused Canadian authorities of interfering in Indian affairs and sheltering extremist elements associated with the Khalistani movement.

Canada faces the greatest threat from China

The Canadian report said that some of the country’s parliamentarians may be influenced by foreign powers. These parliamentarians can work for foreign missions and share confidential information. It has also been speculated that MPs may also get financial assistance in exchange for confidential information. The report describes China as the country playing a key role in foreign interference. It is claimed that the strategies adopted by China are aimed at strengthening the legitimacy and stability of the Communist Party.
