MEA advisory for Indian students in Canada amid 'rising hate crimes'

The advisory comes a day after India raised concerns with Canada that its territory was being used by politically motivated “extremist elements”. Reacting to a recently held Khalistan referendum, conducted by separatist groups, MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi called it a “farcical exercise”.
‘Perpetrators not brought to justice’
The advisory issued on Friday said there has been a sharp increase in incidents of hate crimes, sectarian violence and anti-India activities in Canada.
“The MEA and our High Commission/Consulates General in Canada have taken up these incidents with the Canadian authorities and requested them to investigate the said crimes and take appropriate action. The perpetrators of these crimes have not been brought to justice so far in Canada,” it added.
“In view of the increasing incidences of crimes as described above, Indian nationals and students from India in Canada and those proceeding to Canada for travel/education are advised to exercise due caution and remain vigilant,” it said.
Khalistan ‘referendum’
Some Canadian groups had participated in the separatist event in Brampton city of Canada on September 19.
India has deeply objected that “politically motivated exercises by extremist elements” are allowed to take place in a friendly country like Canada, he said. “We would term it as farcical exercise. A farcical exercise was held by extremists and radical elements supporting the so-called Khalistan referendum in Canada,” Bagchi said.
“The matter has been taken up with the Canadian authorities through diplomatic channels. The government of Canada has reiterated that they respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India and they will not recognise the so-called referendum which is taking place in Canada,” the MEA spokesperson said.
