AlJazeeraEnglish | How India silences critics in the US and Canada | Fault Lines Documentary ...


Last June, the leader of a Sikh temple outside Vancouver stood before his congregation and delivered a dark prediction: agents of the Indian government were plotting to kill him. The leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, believed Indian spies were targeting him because he advocated for a separate state for Sikhs in India. He urged his followers to continue his activism after he was gone.   When Hardeep left the temple that evening, a white sedan blocked his path. Two armed men jumped out of the car, and shot him multiple times at close range. Still, some outside observers thought it was far-fetched that India would risk its diplomatic and economic relationships with the United States and Canada to silence an activist like Nijjar. But since his death, evidence supporting his darkest predictions has continued to emerge. On this episode of Fault Lines: India’s alleged assassination plots in North America—and the global rise in transnational repression. #india #canada #unitedstates #sikh #documentary #aljazeeraenglish #aljazeera #politcs
