Last June, a Sikh leader named Hardeep Singh Nijjar was assassinated in a public car park near a Sikh temple in the state of British Columbia. Two masked men shot and killed him at close range. Nijjar supported the movement for separation from India.
This evening, Trudeau said Canadian intelligence had found a credible link between his death and the Indian government. He said he raised the issue in a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G20 summit. Sikhism is a religion originating in the Punjab region of India. Today it is the fifth largest religion in the world, with about 30 million adherents. Its followers make up 2% of India's population.
