Canada decides to keep Khalistani extremists on no-fly list

London: Canada has decided to keep two Khalistani extremists on no-fly list. One of them, Bhaghat Singh Brar, is accused of working with Pakistans ISI intelligence service to plan an attack in India that was disrupted in 2017, the Global News reported.

Brar was stopped from boarding a flight at Vancouver International Airport on April 24, 2018, when he was told that he was on Canada''s no-fly list. Parvkar Singh Dulai, his business partner, was also stopped from boarding a Toronto bound flight on May 17, 2018, when WestJet refused to let him board for the same reason.

Two years later, both Brar and Dulai are still fighting to get off the no-fly list, but documents obtained by Global News show why they were put there: The government alleges they are terrorism "facilitators."

Jessica Davis, former analyst at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said, "I was quite surprised by the level of detail in some of those files." According to a secret case brief report, the Canadian Intelligence Service believe that Brar is a Canada-based Khalistani extremist who has been engaged in terrorist related activities, particularly in fundraising in support of terrorist attacks overseas.

The documents suggest that Brar was also involved in "promoting extremism, including the radicalisation of the youth, with the aim of achieving Khalistan independence; and attack planning and facilitation, including weapons procurement, to conduct attacks in India".

Brar travelled to Pakistan in 2018, and while returning to Canada, he tried to board a flight in Vancouver but was denied boarding.
