In 2002, Narendra Modi who was the Chief Minister of Gujarat State instigated mass rampages against Muslims on a trumped up charge that some Muslims had burned down a train. It was a transparent lie without any proof whatsoever. Two to three thousand Muslims were murdered as the police and the State machinery stood aside. Some of the worst atrocities were committed against women. There is cogent evidence that mobs tore apart the wombs from living females. In response, the United States as well as Canada barred him from entry into Canada and the US.
In 2015, Modi went on a state visit to Canada as the Prime Minister of India. Sikhs For Justice as well other Sikh activist groups immediately launched a criminal case against him for crimes against humanity. Under Canada’s law of universal jurisdiction, any person who commits genocide or crimes against humanity is subject to Canada’s laws as soon as he comes within Canada’s jurisdiction in personam. During the case, the Judge rendered the decision that there was sufficient evidence for the case to proceed against Modi.
