Central Strong Message Against Violence and Terrorism

2 min read

Pro-Khalistan groups have been posting strongly-worded messages on posters, inciting violence against senior Indian diplomats. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) issued a statement on Thursday, condemning the promotion of violence or terrorism in the name of freedom of expression. Such posters have been spotted in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK ahead of an upcoming rally by pro-Khalistan groups. MEA’s official spokesperson, Arindam Bagchi, emphasized the importance of not giving space to those advocating violence or terrorism. Bagchi also urged host governments to fulfill their obligations under the Vienna Conventions and take necessary actions to ensure the safety of Indian diplomats and diplomatic missions. The Canadian government has been requested to enhance security measures for Indian diplomats and missions in Canada. Bagchi highlighted the misuse of freedom of expression by anti-India elements in Canada and urged Canadian authorities to prevent intimidation against Indian diplomats. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated Canada’s stance against terrorism and emphasized the country’s commitment to combating violence and extremism. India has raised concerns with the UK over threats to Indian diplomats, and the UK Foreign Secretary expressed support for the safety of staff at the Indian High Commission in London. The attempted arson at the Indian consulate in San Francisco was quickly controlled by local authorities, with prompt response from the US administration at senior levels.
