In a First under Justin Trudeau, Canada lists Sikh Extremism as threat

In a First, Canada for the first time under the Justin Trudeau regime has listed Sikh extremism as a threat to the country.

The document drawing scrutiny is Public Safety Canada’s annual report on the terrorism threat to the country. A section on current threats lists “Sunni Islamist extremism” and “right-wing extremism” followed by “Sikh (Khalistani) extremism.” There had been no mention of Sikh extremism in previous years.

The 2018 report notes that while violent activities in support of an independent Sikh homeland (Khalistan) in India have fallen since the 1980s when terrorists carried out the bombing of an Air India flight, killing 331 people, “support for the extreme ideologies of such groups remains. For example, in Canada, two key Sikh organizations, Babbar Khalsa International and the International Sikh Youth Federation, have been identified as being associated with terrorism and remain listed terrorist entities under the Criminal Code.”

Is this serious? I didn't think the Khalistan thing was much of an issue in the diaspora these days?

Pakistan these days again is fuelling the movement. The general secretary of Pakistan Gurdwara prabandhak committee  Gopal Singh Chawla has given inflammatory speeches for Khalistan .His photo with Hafiz saed is quite famous. Infact during Kartarpur Corridor  the posters of refendum 2020 were their in Kartarpur Gurdwara.
