Canada has caused a big loss to itself by making baseless allegations of the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. There has been a huge decline of 86 percent in the number of Indian students studying in Canada this year. This has shocked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Now the interest of Indian students in studying in Canada has reduced. Therefore he is looking for America as an alternative. A large number of Indian students living in Canada have also shifted themselves to America for studies. This decision of Indian students is believed to be a major blow to the economic condition of Canada.

Here, due to bilateral tension, there has also been a decline in permits issued to Indian students. Canada Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Mark Miller has said the declining number of study permits processed is unlikely to improve again. Canada’s Immigration Minister has said that study permits issued to students from India have declined significantly in recent months due to ongoing bilateral tensions following Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement in the House of Commons on September 18. Canada has soured relations with India over the June 18 murder of Khalistan supporter Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia and allegations of possible links between Indian agents.

Now students will not go to Canada

Mark Miller, Canada’s minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, told Reuters the falling number of study permits processed is unlikely to rise again because the issue is still unresolved. It is clear that now even Indian students are no longer interested in going to Canada. He is trying to find alternatives. Canada said our relationship has actually halved our capacity to process that many applications from India. Due to tensions, India expelled 41 Canadian diplomats and their family members from India in October. As Canadian diplomats, including IRCC personnel, left India, their total number dropped from 62 to 21. However, Trudeau described India’s move as forced “eviction”.

Canada is no longer seeing any light

Miller said that there is nothing now between India and Canada that I see any light of hope at the end of the tunnel. He added, “I can’t tell you how the diplomatic relationship will develop, especially if the police have to lay charges.” According to Canadian media reports, law enforcement has two individuals allegedly involved in Nijjar’s murder under surveillance and may soon be arrested. The study was released to Indians in the last quarter of 2023, the agency said. The number of permits declined from 108,940 last year to only 14,910. The decline is 86%.
