This week, Ripudaman Singh Malik, a Sikh-Canadian acquitted in the Air India bombing which killed 329 people, was shot dead in Surrey, British Columbia. 

On 23 June 1985, Air India Flight 182 disintegrated in mid-air en route from Montreal to London over the Atlantic Ocean, resulting from an explosion of a bomb allegedly planted by Canadian Sikh militants.

The remnants of the airliner fell into the ocean 190 kilometres southwest of the tip of Ireland, killing all aboard: 329 people, including 268 Canadians, 27 British citizens and 24 Indian citizens. The bombing of Air India Flight 182 is the largest mass killing in Canadian history. 

As it happens, Canadian New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh maintains a curious relationship with pro-Khalistani forces. OpIndia Media offer their take:

“Jagmeet Singh is known for his support for Khalistani terrorists and has openly voiced his support for the anti-Indian Khalistanis in Canada.”

In 2014, the Indian government denied Jagmeet Singh a visa to visit India, based on an “insidious agenda of disturbing the social fabric of India and undermining the peace, harmony and territorial integrity of India”. Singh is the first western legislator ever to be denied entry into the country.
