सीआरपीएफ के महानिदेशक को
कनाडा सरकार ने अपने देश में आने से रोका क्यों की वे ऐसे संघटन में सर्विस दी है जो आतंकवाद और मानवाधिकार का अलंघन के
दोषी हैं ,
सीआरपीएफ के पूर्व आई जी
ढिल्लों को कनाडा सरकार ने अपने देश में प्रवेश से इंकार कर दिया क्यों की कनाडा
सरकार ने माना है की सीआरपीएफ भारत में आतंकवाद और मानवाधिकार के उलंघन करने वाले
संघटन की सेवा में रहे हैं ,अक्सर सीआरपीएफ पर फर्जी मुठभेड़ और मानवाधिकार के
उलंघन के आरोप लगते रहते हैं .
भारत सरकार ने भले
ही इस कदम का विरोध किया हो लेकिन यह गंभीर और सही आरोप है ,इन सुरक्षा बलों पर
हमेशा ऐसे आरोप लगते हैं ,सरकार को चाहिए तो यह था भारत के सुरक्षा बलों को ऐसी
घटनाओ से रोका जाये ,छत्तीसगढ़ में तो सीबीआई तक ने इनपर सामूहिक बलात्कार के आरोप
लगाये थे .

Relations between India and
Canada could take another hit as a retired senior CRPF officer was denied entry
at Vancouver airport, partly because immigration authorities deemed him to have
served a government that engages in “terrorism, systematic or gross human
rights violations, or genocide”.
Tejinder Singh Dhillon, who
retired with the rank of inspector general of police from the Central Reserve
Police Force in 2010, was declared inadmissible under a subsection of Canada’s
Immigration and Refugee Protection Act last week.
India said on Tuesday that
it has taken up the matter with the government of Canada.
In a statement on Tuesday,
Canada’s high commissioner to India Nadir Patel said, “We regret any
inconvenience that may have been experienced by this individual and their
A document given to Dhillon
at the airport had mentioned that he served a government engaged in “terrorism,
systematic or gross human rights violations, or genocide, a war crime or a
crime against humanity”. This startling condemnation of India was removed in a
second report issued by immigration authorities at Vancouver airport. But they
still held he could not be granted entry as he had served with the CRPF, which
had “committed widespread and systemic human rights abuses, for example
torture, arbitrary detention, murder and sexual assault”.
For his part, Canada’s
envoy to India noted that Canada welcomes record number of Indians, and with
such a large number of applications, “oversights on visa applications can
happen which is regrettable.”
The envoy tried to explain
the situation, saying, “Form letters in use by the Government of Canada include
generic language taken from Canada’s legislation. In this case, the language
does not reflect the Government of Canada’s policy toward India or any
particular organization, including the Central Reserve Police Force of India.”
Speaking over phone from
Ludhiana, Dhillon, who returned after being denied entry, said he had been
travelling to Canada for more than 30 years including several times as a
serving officer of the CRPF.
