Chandigarh, November 14

A video of the Diwali celebration in Canada’s Brampton has gone viral after the event was allegedly disrupted by groups carrying Khalistani flags. They allegedly gate-crashed the celebration and threw stones at the people there.

The celebration turned into chaos and concerns rose with police calling it an “internal community fight”.

In the video, police are seen recording videos and trying to stop those throwing stones.

One commented: “It is very unfortunate to hear about the attack on Hindus celebrating Diwali in Brampton, Canada. It is also concerning that the Canadian media is downplaying the incident by calling it a "fight between Sikhs & Hindus." This attack was clearly motivated by religious hatred.”

Meanwhile, in a significant diplomatic move, India has spearheaded recommendations for Canada to fortify measures preventing attacks on worship places and effectively address hate speech.
