Common Wealth Games, New Delhi, Day 5, 5.45. AM, a BlackBerry message arrives from Canada to India. Airtel executive informs it to the Intelligence Bureau official. Intelligence Bureau has no way of decrypting the message. They move on to the suspect and recover his (by now broken) Blackberry phone. The message has been deleted and the electronics has been crushed by the terrorist, before it was taken by the security forces. There is no way to figure out the message as the Blackberry server is in Canada. Common Wealth Games is at threat.
11.45 AM, a massive blast rips the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi. Scores of the spectators are dead. There is blood and chaos everywhere.
India had told Canada about the specific threat. Buy Canada did not act. Now after the blast, Canada still refuses to react.
The above is a hypothetical situation of how India may typically see Canadian behavior during a terror threat or after. Canada has a past, to back that perception.
As per Maloy Krishna Dhar (ex Intelligence Bureau) “We had given specic information to the Canadian government on the June 23, 1985, Air India Flight 182 “Kanishka” bombing, which killed 329 people. But, they refused to act.” Indians have been pointing fingers at Canadian government of tacit involvement. It was later proved that Canadian Government was indeed responsible for the Kanishka bombing. After 25 years of the Kanishka Bombing, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said “This was not act of foreign violence. This atrocity was conceived in Canada, executed in Canada by Canadian citizens and its victims were themselves mostly citizens of Canada.”
He also warned the Khalstani terrorists “it is incumbent upon us all not to reach out to, but marginalize those extremists who seek to import the battles of India’s past here and then to export them back to that great and forward-looking nation (India). We must have none of it.’
The reason behind the apology was pressure by envoys from Japan, US, Ireland and a host of other quarters. Don’t expect Canada to react on Indian requests. A lot of politicians in Canada get vote from the Khalistani terrorist. Please read my article Why Canada still backs terror in India?, to understand why Canada refuses to cooperate.
Indian Government races to plug the BlackBerry security threat before the Common Wealth games. There are other ways that terrorist can communicate with as much secure encrypted networks. The only difference is that, the servers are hosted in more friendly countries which will step forward in case of a terror threat to India. This could be the specific reason why Blackberry has been singled out by the Indian Government.
