Hindu MP claimed that The Sikh and Hindu populations in Canada are connected by familial connections and other social and cultural ties, Pannun is attempting to incite the Hindu Canadians to provoke and split the two communities.

According to the website of the Indian High Commission in Ottawa, there are 230,000 Indian students and 700,000 non-resident Indians living in Canada.
According to the notification, Indian nationals studying in Canada “must also register” with the high commission in Ottawa, the consulates in Toronto and Vancouver, or both, via those organizations’ websites or the MADAD portal (madad.gov.in). The missions could “better connect with Indian citizens in Canada in the event of any emergency or untoward incident” if they registered.”
