NEW DELHI: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in a controversial take, mistook the Hindu Swastika for a Nazi Hakenkreuz, on Sunday. 

Trudeau was slammed by several social media handles on X for spreading hatred when he posted, “When we see or hear hateful language and imagery, we must condemn it. The display of a swastika by an individual on Parliament Hill is unacceptable. Canadians have the right to assemble peacefully – but we cannot tolerate antisemitism, Islamophobia, or hate of any kind.” 

The swastika is an old and auspicious symbol for Hindus, with the “Hakenkreuz,” a Nazi symbol of hatred from the 20th century. 

 

Vishwa Hindu Parishad spokesperson Vinod Bansal responded to his tweet by, “Dear @JustinTrudeau , Please learn #Swastik before blindly spreading hate against it.

Stop equating the Hindu symbol “Swastika” with Nazi’s symbol “Hakenkreuz” or the Hooked Cross. Your language clearly shows that by coming closer to Terrorists or protecting them, you are inclined to become Hinduphobic and Indiaphobic which is not good for a country like Canada. Remember, terrorism never escaped even its founders and supporters.”  

Trudeau had earlier also made several statements about the Swastika when a prominent US-based Hindu organisaiton had urged him and Indian-origin leader Jagmeet Singh to not “conflate the Swastika”. 

The Canadian PM had also proceeded to sympathise with Hardeep Singh Nijjar’s killing, who had been designated as a terrorist by India. Trudeau continues to turn a blind eye to anti-India hate and continues to provide free run to Khalistanis on his soil.
