India asks citizens in Canada to ‘be on alert’ in view of sharp rise in hate crimes

India has advised its citizens in Canada to remain vigilant and exercise caution in view of the increase in reported hate crimes and activities which the Indian state considers to be detrimental to its interests.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday issued an advisory in this regard and put on record that the Canadian government has so far failed to deliver justice in the matters concerned.

“There has been a sharp increase in incidents of hate crimes, sectarian violence and anti-India activities in Canada. In view of the increasing incidence of crimes, Indian citizens and students from India in Canada and those visiting Canada for travel/education are advised to exercise caution and remain vigilant,” the advisory said.

The public notice was put out a day after the Foreign Ministry described as “deeply objectionable” the 18-19 September ‘referendum on Khalistan’ organized by some individuals in Brampton, Ontario. In addition to the ‘referendum’ that caused tension in some sections of Canadian society, there have been several incidents of fencing involving people of Indian origin. Canadian authorities have made some arrests and investigations into the incidents are ongoing.

“The Ministry of External Affairs and our High Commission/Consulate in Canada have taken up these incidents with the Canadian authorities and requested them to investigate the above offenses and take appropriate action. The perpetrators of these crimes are yet to be brought to justice. in Canada,” declared the advisory. It urged Indian citizens and students to register with the High Commission of India in Ottawa or the Consulate General of India in Toronto and Vancouver through their websites or the MADAD portal (madad.gov.in). so as to help in better coordination in case of any emergency.
