कनाडा के शहर मिसिसागा में दिवाली की रात में ख़ालिस्तान समर्थकों और भारतीयों के बीच झड़प हुईं!

कनाडा के शहर मिसिसागा की पुलिस ने बताया है कि दिवाली की रात करीब 400 से 500 लोगों के बीच झड़प हुई.

अंग्रेज़ी अख़बार द ट्रिब्यून की ख़बर के अनुसार, इनमें से एक पक्ष झड़प के दौरान जहां भारतीय तिरंगा फहरा रहा था तो वहीं दूसरे पक्ष के लोगों के हाथ में ख़ालिस्तान समर्थक बैनर और पोस्टर थे.

ग्लोबल न्यूज़ के हवाले से अख़बार ने बताया कि पुलिस अधिकारियों को सोमवार रात स्थानीय समयानुसार साढ़े 9 बजे के आसपास दो गुटों के बीच झड़प की जानकारी मिली.

पुलिस ने कहा कि उन्हें सूचना दी गई थी कि गोरवे इलाके में एक पार्किंग के अंदर लड़ाई हो गई है और पैरामेडिकल स्टाफ़ ने कम से कम एक शख्स के स्वास्थ्य की जांच की.

हालांकि, ताज़ा जानकारी में पुलिस ने कहा कि वहां बड़ी संख्या में लोग मौजूद थे जो चीख-चिल्ला रहे थे लेकिन कोई बड़ी झड़प नहीं हुई. इस बीच मिसिसगा शहर का एक कथित वीडियो सोशल मीडिया पर वायरल हो गया. इस वीडियो में दो गुटों को पुलिस द्वारा अलग करते देखा जा सकता है. पीछे पटाखे फूटने की भी आवाज़ें सुनी जा सकती हैं.

They left India but could not leave their tribalism behind. If they are so nationalistic, why did they leave India? And these Khalistani morons are ungrateful people who have brought their fight to Canada.

500 people fight in Mississauga during Diwali celebrations

Video has surfaced online of what appears to be a brawl between hundreds of people celebrating Diwali in Mississauga last night (Oct. 24).

The footage posted on TikTok shows two large crowds at a Diwali celebration separated by Peel Regional Police officers as fireworks can be heard in the background.

Garbage from what appears to be used fireworks litters the ground where the stand-off took place. One group can be seen waving Indian flags, while the other held banners supporting the Khalistan referendum movement.

Peel Regional Police say officers responded to reports of 400 to 500 people fighting in a Mississauga around 9:40 p.m. on Monday night.

The fight happened in a parking lot at Goreway Dr. and Etude Dr. in Malton during celebrations for Diwali – the annual festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.

A police spokesperson said the video circulating online is likely of the same incident. The video had been watched over 200,000 times on TikTok as of 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

Police say one person was injured in the brawl, a male victim who was being assessed by Peel Paramedics. The fight appeared to calm down by 10:30 p.m., but police said they were remaining in the area as a precaution.

Goreway Drive was temporarily closed in both directions between Etude Dr. and Morning Star Dr. to clear vehicles from the area.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement on Monday ahead of Diwali for Mississauga and Brampton, saying that high levels of pollution across the area were anticipated because of the large number of fireworks that were expected to be let off as part of the celebrations.

As of 11:00 p.m., Environment Canada has rated Brampton’s Air Quality Health Index at “10+” or a “very high risk.”

However, later in the day Environment Canada removed any mention of Diwali from its air quality warning.

Last year, Brampton bylaw officers received more than 650 calls related to fireworks during Diwali and more than 750 calls in all of 2021 – more annual fireworks complaints than Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton combined.
