No room for hate, says Canada after Pannun‘s threat
The public safety department of Canada has denounced a video message by Gurpatwant Singh Pannunof the banned group Sikhs for Justice, telling Hindus to leave the country.

Public safety minister Dominic LeBlanc and Sikh liberal MPs Harjit Singh Sajjan and Randeep Sarai too have reassured the Canadian Hindus of safety, though none explicitly named Pannun.
“There is no place in Canada for hate. The circulation of an online video in which Hindu Canadians are told to leave Canada is offensive and hateful, and is an affront to all Canadians and the values we hold dearly,” said the public safety department. “Acts of aggression, hate, intimidation or incitement of fear have no place in this country and only serve to divide us. We urge all Canadians to respect one another and follow the rule of law. Canadians deserve to feel safe in their communities,” it asserted.

The video emerged amidst increasing tensions between India and Canada, stemming from PM Justin Trudeau’s allegations of possible involvement of Indian agents in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia on June 18.
Assuring Hindus in Canada, minister LeBlanc posted on X: “All Canadians deserve to feel safe. The circulation of an online hate video targeting Hindu Canadians runs contrary to the values we hold dear as Canadians.”

Liberal MP Randeep Sarai condemned Pannun’s video.
