Pakistani filmmaker announced to make a film on the life of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar

-

The death of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, and the allegations of involvement by the Indian intelligence agency RAW have certainly raised significant questions and garnered international attention.

Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a 45-year-old Sikh leader, was shot dead by two individuals outside a Gurdwara in Surrey on June 18, 2023. The Canadian authorities have accused India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of being directly involved in the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, citing indisputable evidence. The case has attracted significant attention from the international media due to the allegations against RAW and the circumstances surrounding the assassination.

A Pakistani film production company, Metro Live Movies, has announced its intention to produce a film about the life of Hardeep Singh Nijjar. The film will focus on Hardeep’s struggle for the creation of Khalistan, as well as his transformation from a Sikh youth living a simple life in a village to a prominent figure in the fight for an independent homeland.

A film about Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s life and struggle for Khalistan is in the works, written and directed by Pakistani journalist Umar Khitab Khan.

Three months after the incident, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expelled an Indian diplomat and lodged a strong protest with the Indian government regarding the case.

Hardeep Singh Nijjar, originally from Bhar Singh Pura, a village in the Jalandhar district of Indian Punjab, moved to Canada, where he worked as a plumber. He sought refuge in Canada due to his dissatisfaction with the Indian government’s actions. Despite relocating to Canada, he remained an active leader in the Khalistan movement. Hardeep had hidden his identity and presented himself as a refugee named Ravi Sharma to gain entry into Canada. In 2020, the Indian government seized his agricultural land, alleging his involvement with the Khalistan Tiger Force. The Indian government linked Hardeep to the banned organization Sikhs for Justice and offered a reward for his arrest, even though he was living abroad.

A film about Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s life and struggle for Khalistan is in the works, written and directed by Pakistani journalist Umar Khitab Khan.

The case is a complex one, with geopolitical implications and historical context related to the Khalistan movement. It will be interesting to see how the investigation progresses and how the film portrays Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s life and his role in the movement for Khalistan.
