Canadian envoy to India Cameron MacKay 'appalled' by Indira Gandhi's celebration

The Canadian envoy to India Cameron MacKay on Thursday said he was 'appalled' by an event that took place in his country where the assassination of former Indian PM Indira Gandhi was celebrated.

"I am appalled by reports of an event in Canada that celebrated the assassination of late Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi," he tweeted.

"There is no place in Canada for hate or for the glorification of violence. I categorically condemn these activities," he said.

He issued the Twitter comment at a time when a video emerged on the micro-blogging site that showed a tableau in a Brampton parade that showed Gandhi wearing a blood-stained white saree.

The statue's hands were kept in an up posture as turban-clad men pointed guns at her.

A poster behind her read: "Revenge."

The unverified video was shared by Balraj Deol who said that the float was part of a 5 km-long parade in the Canadian city on June 4, reports The Indian Express.

The first female Prime Minister of the nation, Indira Gandhi was assassinated on Oct 31, 1984 by her own body guards.
