Canada’s prime minister applauds the ‘rule of law’ after arrests over separatist killings of Sikhs

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged the fear in Canada’s Sikh community on Saturday but underscored the “rule of law” following three arrests in connection with last year’s killing of a Sikh separatist in Vancouver.

Police arrested three men Friday in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, which caused a diplomatic rift between Canada and India last fall after Trudeau suggested the Indian government was involved in the killing.

Speaking Saturday at a gala in Toronto celebrating Sikh heritage and culture, Trudeau acknowledged that many in Canada’s Sikh community “feel uncomfortable and perhaps even scared right now,” but he urged confidence in the legal system.
