Dividing the democracies

opinionEditorialDividing the democracies

It was early this year that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was being asked in the Canadian parliament about a PRC ring operating in the country. There are, and have been, multiple CCP-controlled groups operating in Canada since the days when Pierre Trudeau was the Prime Minister of Canada. The purpose of the CCP-run group mentioned by opposition MPs in the Canadian parliament was to undertake influence operations designed to promote the prospects not just of Trudeau’s own Liberal Party but those of the political factions that are linked to the Sino-Pakistan project of once again fomenting mayhem in the state of Punjab. Unlike in the 1980s, where botched operations by the security forces resulted in a backlash of sentiment within the state, this time around the Sino-Pakistan “Khalistan” project has found few takers in Punjab. The Sikh community is known for its patriotism and nobility of conduct, and are aware that those few in Canada, the US, the UK and Australia that drone on about creating an independent state carved out of India are pawns of the Pakistan army. Much of the lands and property now in the possession of former and present officers of the Pakistan army are assets that were illegally and cruelly seized from innocent Sikh families that bore the trauma of genocide and other atrocities during 1946-48 in what since 1947 is Pakistan. Of course, the groups in some western countries that are being backed by the Sino-Pakistan alliance never once mention these atrocities, pretending that history began not in 1947 but in 1984, when atrocities were committed, mostly in Delhi, on innocent Sikhs subsequent to the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on October 31. While in the 1980s the “Khalistan Project” of the Sino-Pakistan alliance was a significant threat to the security and the very integrity of India, in the 2020s, its effects are negligible. Despite the money funneled to such groups from the two countries backing them, all that the “Khalistan” movement has caused is a significant rise in internecine warfare between such groups over the division of spoils. Disputes that often end fatally, as took place in the case of Hardeep Singh Nijjar more than three months ago.

In the 1980s, then Prime Minister of Canada Pierre Trudeau refused to extradite a known terrorist, Talwinder Parmar, back to India, on the specious grounds that India was insufficiently respectful towards Queen Elizabeth of Britain, who was concurrently the Head of State of Canada. In 1985, Parmar planted a bomb in Air India Flight 182 that exploded while the aircraft was over the ocean, killing all on board. Each of those deaths was caused by the refusal of Pierre Trudeau to extradite Parmar to India. His son Justin is now following the same policy, that of ignoring not just the fast-spreading network of PRC agents located in Canada, but the facilitators of terror and violence against India that are being incentivised to strike at the world’s most populous democracy by the Sino-Pakistan alliance. Canadian security agencies are well aware of the contacts of the “Khalistan” network with this alliance, and of the disputes between them over the profits made from their nefarious activities. Yet the Trudeau government has acted not at all against this growing menace. Instead, by uttering the false claim that India was behind the Nijjar killing and by fabricating stories in the form of leaks to the media, the effort by Justin Trudeau is to draw attention away from the links of himself and some in his family with CCP-controlled entities and individuals. The effort is to derail the growing partnership between India and the Atlantic Alliance for the benefit of the PRC. Justin Trudeau goes by the Rule of the Outlaw in the manner in which he is supporting those who seek to foment violence and terror, while all the while talking of the Rule of Law. Someday, the motivations behind Prime Minister Trudeau’s transparent effort to divert attention from PRC penetration of the innards of the Canadian government by conjuring up an imaginary India bogey will become clear. Meanwhile, as in so many other operations of theirs, the efforts by countries hostile to democracy to divide the democracies from each other through the use of highly placed dupes will fail.
