Vikram Doraiswami, the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, was denied entry to a gurdwara in Scotland on Friday by radical British Sikh militants. The statement “not welcome” was made to Doraiswami.
The Indian High Commissioner to the UK, Vikram Doraiswami, was denied entry to a Scottish gurdwara on Friday. The execution of terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar has sparked diplomatic tension between India and Canada.
The specifics state that a group of hardline British Sikh activists stopped Doraiswami and informed him he was “not welcome.”
A pro-Khalistan Sikh activist revealed information about the event, saying that some of them learned that Doraiswami had a meeting scheduled with the gurdwara committee of the Glasgow Gurdwara on Albert Drive.
A few individuals arrived and informed him that he was not welcome. A little altercation occurred, the activist said.
The gurdwara committee is probably not too pleased with what transpired. But no gurdwara in the UK will accept Indian authorities, he said.
“We are tired of the UK-Indian conspiracy. The current unrest following the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar has resulted in British Sikhs becoming targets. This also has something to do with Jagtar Singh Johal and Avtar Singh Khanda, he added.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s September 18 allegation of the “potential” participation of Indian operatives in Nijjar’s murder in June ignited a spat between New Delhi and Ottawa.
In retaliation for Ottawa’s decision to dismiss an Indian official over the matter, India vehemently rejected the accusations as “absurd” and “motivated” and expelled a senior Canadian ambassador.
According to reports, pro-Khalistan elements headquartered in Canada have been attracting credulous Sikh youngsters to the nation by financing their visas with the sole intention of utilizing them to further their goal on Canadian territory, according to news agency PTI on Wednesday.
