Despite India’s warning to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over his earlier remarks on farmers protests, the PM has once again commented that he “will always stand up for the right of peaceful protests”.
Speaking at a press conference after the External Affairs Ministry issued a demarche to Canadian High Commissioner, Trudeau said, “Canada will always stand up for the right of peaceful protests anywhere around the world.”
Meanwhile, the Sikh Council UK has demanded the political leaders to support the Canadian PM.
