Freedom of expression doesn’t mean bullying others, says Canada India Foundation convener on hate speech given by SFJ member to Hindu community members

National Convener of the Canada India Foundation Ritesh Malik reacted to the viral video of a Sikh for Justice (SFJ) member threatening the Hindu community in the country and said the Justin Trudeau-led government should not support those spreading hatred between communities in the guise of freedom of expression.

He said the government has failed to take appropriate action against them so far.

“Freedom of expression does not mean that you should bully others or you should create hatred amongst communities or promote hate speech or violent crime against others. But somehow I think the government has failed to act on these elements and these elements have been feeling encouraged,” Malik was quoted as saying by ANI.

He added, “If you guys saw this guy from SFJ whosoever recently like two days ago, same day, probably the day Prime Minister Trudeau gave that statement in parliament. He actually issued a video where he is openly threatening Hindus to go back to India and accusing them of siding with like we are not siding with India or Canada.”

He said, “Because they are very vocal and they have kind of I’m not hesitant to say that they have kind of infiltrated into the policy, the government and all these places. So they always try to dictate, bully and make politicians feel that if they are not on their side, they won’t get the votes. So which is a concerning situation.”

He also voiced his concern over the recent diplomatic standoff between India and Canada over the death of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Triggering a row, Trudeau recently alleged India's role in the killing of the Khalistani leader.

New Delhi, however, rejected his allegation.
