CHANDI­GARH: Re­act­ing to Canada leader of Op­po­si­tion An­drew Scheer’s state­ment dur­ing Wed­nes­day’s Pun­jab visit that his party ‘does not sup­port those who choose vi­o­lence for a po­lit­i­cal agenda’, the Sikhs For Jus­tice (SFJ) has writ­ten to Scheer say­ing that, “Sikh sep­a­ratism is a po­lit­i­cal opin­ion and la­bel­ing it as vi­o­lence and ter­ror­ism flouts the Cana­dian val­ues of democ­racy and re­spect for dis­sent”.
