While Canadian high commissioner Cameron MacKay said that there is no place in his country for hate, Twitter users called the act ‘disgusting’ and shocking’.

Appalled by an event that “celebrated” assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Canadian high commissioner Cameron MacKay on Thursday said that there is no place in his country for hate or for the glorification of violence. He added that he “categorically condemns” these activities.

The Canadian high commissioner’s remarks came after a video emerged on social media showing a float depicting the assassination of late PM Indira Gandhi. The float was reportedly part of a 5-km long parade taken out by supporters of Khalistan in Canada’s Brampton.

Reports stated that parade was held on June 4, two days before the 39th anniversary of Operation Blue Star. While News18 cannot independently verify the authenticity of the video, the clip drew reaction from people on social media as they condemned the march.

While a Twitter user commented that the parade is “more of reflection of Pakistani Sikh agenda as they are deprived of lot of benefits”, others called it “shocking at many levels”. Another user said, “Disgusting. Canada as well the Indians there should know this is completely unacceptable & won’t do them any good in any way.”
