Amarinder Singh, Punjab CM condemns blast that injured innocent people in an Indian Restaurant in Mississauga
Shocked over the incident CM of Punjab, Amarinder Singh said that the dastardly attack on innocent people was unjustifiable and unpardonable, and underscored the gravity of the problem of terrorism.
Pained and shocked at tragic blast in #Canada. Shows that terrorism is indeed a global problem and no nation is safe. Fighting terror is collective responsibility of all and nobody can afford to ignore it except at their own peril. Let’s all work together to wipe out this menace.

Singh said in a statement, “The incident, which comes just a month after 10 pedestrians were mowed to death by a van driver in Toronto, has once again highlighted the global dimensions of terrorism.”
He said that it shows that no nation was immune or safe from this menace.
The chief minister expressed concern over the fact that the blast was targeted at an Indian restaurant, which was frequented mainly by the large Indian community in the area.
Highlighting that he had raised the issue of Canadian soil being increasingly used by radical forces with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during his India visit earlier this year, Singh stressed that no country could afford to ignore the growing danger of terrorism except at their own peril.
He said that it was the collective responsibility of all nations to fight terrorism adding that he had sought Trudeau’s cooperation for the same during their talks in February.
He has urged the Indian government to direct the Indian mission in Canada to extend all possible help to the Indians and Indo-Canadians injured in the explosion.
He also appealed to the Indian government to take up the issue of terrorism with the Canadian government so that the two nations could work in close coordination in the war against terror.
