Vancouver Sun crime reporter Kim Bolan marked the 30th anniversary of the Air India bombing by citing how at least one Sikh gurdwara in Surrey still prominently displays the photo of the militant that a Canadian judge said was the leader of the terrorist attack, which killed 331 innocent people, mostly Canadians.
What would Canadians do if a mosque in the country proudly displayed the photo of Osama bin Laden or another Islamic terrorist, who are also considered “freedom fighters” in some circles?
What would we do if a Christian church in Canada displayed the photo of an Irish terrorist who killed innocent civilians?
What would Canadians do if a synagogue in the country displayed the photo of the Jewish religious fanatic who assassinated Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin?
We all know what would happen. The outcry from all Canadian sources would be deafening.
