Trudeau accompanied by his wife and three children have visited Agra and Amritsar. The Canadian PM is scheduled to meet and hold talks with PM Modi on February 23 and he will also address a conference of young change-makers on February 24.
Meanwhile, Trudeau on Tuesday had reiterated his government’s commitment to a “United India”. The response came at the time when his government was surrounded by the ambiguity over their Khalistan stand. Notably, a convicted Khalistan terrorist, Jaspal Atwal, who was active in the banned Internation Sikh Youth Federation, had posed with Canadian PM’s wife Sophie Trudeau at an event in Mumbai on February 20. Atwal was convicted of the attempted murder of Punjab minister, Malkiat Singh Sidhu, on Vancouver Island in 1986.
At the time of shooting in 1986, he was a Sikh separatist active in the pro-Khalistan International Sikh Youth Federation. He and three others were convicted in 1987 of trying to kill Malkiat Singh Sidhu.
