ISLAMABAD: Prominent Chinese scholar, Prof Cheng Xizhong, has said that the serious diplomatic incident between India and Canada that has occurred in recent days indicates that the grave consequences of the Hindu extreme nationalism promoted by the Narendra Modi-led Indian regime have expanded from within India to abroad and even as far away as North America.
Cheng Xizhong, Visiting Professor of Southwest University of Political Science and Law, in a statement said if Narendra Modi continues to suppress minority religions and ethnic groups such as Muslims, Kashmiris and Sikhs, the extremely grave consequences will not only lead to greater domestic turmoil in India but also have a serious impact that will further spread to the whole world.
Prof Cheng, who is also a former Defense Attaché in South Asian countries, noted that due to unbearable extreme Hinduism by the Indian authorities, Sikhs hoped to establish their own country Khalistan. “This force was quite active from the 1960s to the 1980s but was subjected to bloody armed suppression by the Indian security forces. In this situation, some leaders and supporters of the Sikh separatist movement fled to Western countries, where they have regained their foothold and influence. Recently, over 42,000 Canadian Sikhs congregated at the Khalistan Referendum voting center in Malton, Ontario, following the assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a prominent pro-Khalistan leader in Canada,” he added.
The Chinese scholar further noted that over the years, the Modi regime has been vigorously promoting extreme nationalism that only reveres Hinduism. “As a result, separatism, which was originally suppressed, has begun to sprout again. This has become a major headache for Narendra Modi,” he said.
Prof Cheng concluded that from a diplomatic incident between India and Canada, it seems that the Modi regime not only aims to suppress minority religions and ethnic groups domestically but also is expanding the scope of such actions overseas.
