|Controversy||• Indian Authorities had denied his travel document in December 2013. Akhilesh Mishra, the then counsel general of India in Toronto, told Canadian daily Globe and Mail in an email that, “Anyone indulging in, directly or indirectly, attacking India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is not welcome in India.”|
Jagmeet raised this denial while speaking on the floor of the assembly during a debate on the motion to declare anti-Sikh riots in India in 1984 ‘genocide.’ He was critical of India and the Narendra Modi government and said, “This is a country that continues to use visa denial as a form of silencing its critics.”
• Despite all the love and affection that he gets on social media, not all of his posts are appreciated. He had to garner a lot of criticism for praising and supporting former Cuban Dictator, Fidel Castro.
