Toronto. The matter of taking out the tableau of the assassination of former PM Indira Gandhi is gaining momentum. In view of this, the Canadian Law Enforcement Agency said that the issue of taking out the tableau of the assassination of the former PM of India does not legally fall under the category of hate crime. This statement was issued by the office of Brampton City Mayor Patrick Brown.
Jhansi was taken out on June 4
Significantly, the controversial tableau was taken out during a parade on June 4, two days before the 39th anniversary of Operation Blue Star. In this tableau of Khalistan supporters, two Sikh gunmen were seen shooting the former PM. Along with this, posters were put up, in which it was written that this has changed. Other tableaux also had banners referring to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The video of this incident went viral on social media.
India’s Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had said in a stern tone on Thursday that this is not good for mutual relations and Canada. Whereas, soon after the incident, Canadian High Commissioner to India, Cameron McKay expressed his regret by tweeting. He had said that there is no place in Canada for the glorification of hatred or violence.
Canadian mayor’s statement
Taking note of the matter, Mayor Patrick Brown said that under Canadian law it could not be assumed that the scene during a parade in the Greater Toronto Area constituted a hate crime. He stated that he did not attend the event, nor was it a City of Brampton event. The statement said that Canadian law guarantees Canadians freedom of thought, belief and expression. Any decision to change the law related to this is taken at the federal level. The police enforce laws, not make them.
this is not acceptable
A senior Indian official has said about this incident that it is not acceptable. You cannot encroach on freedom of expression like this. Glorifying the murder of a leader of a democratic country.
