After the assassination of a Sikh on Canadian soil, what did (or didn’t) the foreign interference commission reveal about India?

Lawyer Prabjot Singh who represented a coalition of Sikh organizations in the foreign interference inquiry shares reflections and insights

The foreign interference commission published its preliminary report — but the Sikh community in Canada says the inquiry largely overlooked India despite their role as a major threat of foreign interference in Canada. 

In the foreign interference commission’s final report it was revealed that “India directed foreign interference activities related to the 2019 & 2021 general elections.”

The commission also revealed that CSIS considered India a “clear second to (China) in terms of the level of (foreign interference) threat” and that Indian foreign interference was an “area of focus for more than one regional office.”

Following the arrests of Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s killers and the release of the report, we speak with lawyer Prabjot Singh, legal counsel for the Sikh coalition, about what questions still need answers.

Prabjot Singh is a lawyer and the Founding Editor of the Panth-Punjab Project. His articles on Sikh political theory, public policy, and law have been published in a number of platforms including The Guardian, Baaz News, and the Manitoba Law Journal. He is participating in Canada’s Foreign Interference Commission as Legal Counsel for a coalition of Sikh organizations.
