Videos have surfaced online of the murdered Khalistani man given Canadian citizenship despite being labelled a potential terrorist by Interpol, that show him brandishing illegal firearms and recklessly discharging them.
Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was shot dead outside a Sikh temple in Surrey, B.C., on June 18, can be seen in the videos with multiple illegal weapons, though it’s not clear which country Nijjar was in at the time.
On Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged that the Indian government was behind the killing, though no evidence has been presented yet, and no Canadian allies have condemned India.
The diplomatic ties between Canada and India were enormously strained this week after Trudeau’s allegations. India’s foreign ministry denied the allegations on Tuesday, calling them “absurd.”
JR, owner of The Shooting Edge in Calgary, says “These are civilian variants of the military AK47.”
One of the illegal weapons Nijjar was training with was a CZ858.
The weapon brandished by the supposedly peaceful activist was labeled “assault-style” by Justin Trudeau, who claimed that there was no reason for civilians to possess or use such killing machines.
One of the illegal weapons being used was loaded with a prohibited magazine, an illegal tool in Canada to limit casualties during mass shootings.
The actual effectiveness of the ban on large magazines is on full display in the video, but the illegality of them is beyond dispute. Individuals caught with these weapons typically face lengthy prison sentences.
