    TORONTO – A former Sikh militant turned lawyer who was deported from Canada has lost his appeal to return, which is becoming a familiar refrain under the anti-immigrant Tories.

    Canadian court has dismissed the plea of Parminder Singh Saini to return to Canada after he was ordered to be deported to India for leading a team of militants in the 1984 hijacking of an Indian aircraft to Pakistan with 225 passengers.

    The 48-year-old Saini reformed himself after entering Canada illegally and even obtained a law degree to become a lawyer when under Conservatives minority rule he was deemed a threat to national security, a familiar excuse being used by western governments to get rid of non-white, largely Muslim and Arab immigrants.

    The application of Saini, 48, was dismissed by a federal court judge on February 9.

    Saini, who formerly lived in Brampton, was deported to India in January 2010. A motion to allow him to return to Canada was filed on February 3.

    He was a member of the All-India Sikh Students Federation, an organisation deemed a terrorist group in Canada. Armed with a handgun, he led four militants in hijacking the aircraft that was on way to Delhi from Srinagar.

    The aircraft was flown to Lahore in a drama that ended after a 17-hour standoff, with the hijackers surrendering to Pakistani authorities.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
