Public Safety Canada’s terror report maligns Canadian Sikhs: World Sikh Organization

THE World Sikh Organization of Canada said on Tuesday that it is deeply disappointed by the addition of “Sikh (Khalistani) Extremism” to the Public Safety Canada’s 2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada that was released today. The 2018 report on Canada’s terrorist threat environment included the “Sikh extremism” component for the first time this year. The move appears correlated to repeated unsubstantiated Indian accusations of rising extremism in the Sikh community that reached a crescendo during the visit of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to India earlier this year.

While the 2018 Public Safety report does not make any reference to current extremist activities in the Sikh community, it does state, “some individuals in Canada continue to support Sikh (Khalistani) extremist ideologies and movements.”
