  • Vikas Khanna Taught Justin Trudeau & His Family How To Roll Rotis

The remarks came after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is on a visit to India, received backlash over his wife Sophie Trudeau's photo with convicted pro-Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal.

While the office is looking into the mishap, the statement highlighted that Atwal was "not part of the official delegation to the PM's visit to India, nor was he invited by the Prime Minister's Office".

Asked if any cases were pending in India against Atwal, Kumar said all these issues would need to be examined but refused to be drawn into whether New Delhi would hold him back in the country.

He said the MP from his party "took full responsibility" for the dinner invitation.

Modi's welcome messages for his Canadian counterpart follow wide speculation of India cold-shouldering Trudeau during his state visit to India that started on February 17.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of External Affairs said it is not clear how the Khalistani activist was given visa.

"We do not comment on matters relating to the PM's security", it said.

"One of the communities that is significant in Canada, which traces its roots to India, is the Sikh community which also contributes very much to our country", she said.

Atwal is reportedly a former member of the International Sikh Youth Federation, a banned "terrorist" group in Canada, the United Kingdom, the USA and India. "It helps innovation and makes for better-decision making", said the Prime Minister, whose cabinet has four Indian origin ministers, including Sikhs.


The controversy involving Atwal first propped after images on social media showed Trudeau's wife photographed with Atwal during an event in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Trudeau arrived here on Friday on an eight-day visit to India, and has already presided over an Indo-Canadian business meeting in Mumbai.

Names of almost 150 wanted terrorists and their associates were removed from the blacklist in the last few years, a home ministry official told PTI.

Goldy Hyder, President of Hill and Knowlton Strategies and a long-time Conservative insider who was in India for part of the Canadian trip, said the Atwal furor is taking away from the positives of the Trudeau tour.

Sidhu was shot at twice on a road and survived, but was later assassinated in India.

After being found guilty, Atwal, along with three other convicts, was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, according to India Today. Let's play smart and leverage India's huge market, growing global status and people-to-people ties between India and Canada to get Ottawa to see things our way.

He also posted a picture of him along with Trudeau and Ella-Grace during his visit to Canada in April 2015.

While Modi did not accompany Trudeau to Ahmedabad, a meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh at Amritsar on Wednesday was organised only at the last moment.

"Even if he was on a black list at some point of time, there have been instances when names have been removed in the past on the recommendation of the Punjab government".
