Today, Canada government had updated its travel advisory asking its citizens to Exercise a high degree of caution in India due to the threat of terrorist attacks throughout the country, Avoid non-essential travel to the following states due to the risk of terrorism and insurgency: Assam, Manipur and avoid all travel to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir “due to the unpredictable security situation”, ramping up a confrontation between the two countries over Canada’s accusations that the Indian government may have been involved in the killing of Khalistan extremist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in June this year.
In response to this, India government too issued an advisory to its nationals and Indian students in Canada. Arindam Bagchi spokesperson of Indian Ministry of External Affairs said “In view of growing anti-India activities and politically-condoned hate crimes and criminal violence in Canada, all Indian nationals there and those contemplating travel are urged to exercise utmost caution.”
“Recently, threats have particularly targeted Indian diplomats and sections of the Indian community who oppose the anti-India agenda. Indian nationals are therefore advised to avoid travelling to regions and potential venues in Canada that have seen such incidents” said in the advisory.
After Canada, Indian govt too issues advisory for Indian Nationals and Indian Students in Canada. Our High Commission/Consulates General will continue to be in contact with the Canadian authorities to ensure the safety and well being of the Indian community in Canada.
Given the deteriorating security environment in Canada, Indian students in particular are advised to exercise extreme caution and remain vigilant.
Indian nationals and students from India in Canada must also register with the High Commission of India in Ottawa or Consulates General of India in Toronto and Vancouver through their respective websites, or the MADAD portal madad.gov.in. Registration would enable the High Commission and the Consulates General to better connect with Indian citizens in Canada in the event of any emergency or untoward incident.
