Doesnt exactly sound random.

Looks to be a hit job by one of the Indo-Canadian gangs active in the lower Mainland. Burning vehicle is a giveaway, since that is how these gangs cover their tracks after every hit job.

But may have been ordered by someone sitting in New Delhi, since most of these Khalistanis in Canada have made quite a few enemies in India.

Tara Singh Hayer who wanted to expose the Khalistani plotters of the Kanishka bombing had been shot dead years ago.

To add to the above, most of these Khalistanis are thriving in Canada because they are close to the ruling dispensation.

Jaspal Singh Atwal who is a known Khalistani was photographed with Trudeau’s wife and was part of a delegation visiting India. This gaffe led to a diplomatic protest from India.

A detailed investigative book Blood for Blood by Terry Milewski covers how Canada inadvertently gave support to the Khalistanis.

If he really was the bomber, this is a fitting end.

If he really was the bomber, this is a fitting end.

The bombing was a conspiracy in which many people were involved in planning, financing and providing moral support.

If a concerted effort were to be made to bring each and every person to book it would implicate a lot of people who are today very well respected in the Sikh community in Canada. Most of the Sikhs living in Canada harbour Khalistani sympathies so for them the bombings were a natural reaction to what had happened in their homeland a year earlier.

It’s also being alleged that Ripudaman was planning to spill the beans on his fellow conspirators so he was executed, just like Tara Singh Hayer who had made it his mission to expose the people behind the conspiracy and paid with his life as a result.

One has to wonder if Mr. Modi had a hand in this?

Would not put it past him, but the question is what would he achieve. The Khalistan dream has fizzled out in India, and most of the Indian Sikhs have moved on from the troubled past of their home state.

Khalistan dream is only being kept alive in the Sikh communities in Canada, because many of the Sikhs who migrated to Canada did so to escape the problems in Punjab during those troubled days.

Its like the Sikh diaspora in Canada is hanging on to a lost cause which they fought for, and are not able to move on.

Ripudaman Singh Malik had repented his Khalistani past, and was on speaking terms with Modi.

For sure by the looks of it, it was a hit job by one of the Indo-Canadian gangs active in the lower Mainland. But the question is who ordered the hit. Some reports say that Ripudaman was planning to spill the beans on his fellow conspirators and they got to him first.

Whatever be the truth the fact is that these ex-militants had a lot of skeletons in their cupboard which will slowly tumble out.
