The Canada-India Nuclear Cooperation Agreement was ratified this week. However, analysts note that India has illegally produced nuclear weapons in the past and refuses to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty.
Analysts accuse the Harper government of displaying a double standard by consenting to the sale of nuclear ingredients to India, which has not signed the Non Proliferation Treaty, while constantly criticizing Iran's peaceful nuclear program even though Iran poses no threat to Canadians and has signed the NPT.
Many Canadians are displeased with the Harper government’s decision to sell uranium and nuclear technology to a country that refuses to sign the NPT.
Analysts believe that those who control the Harper government are seeking to use Canada’s resources as a bargaining chip to entice India away from its Non Aligned, anti-imperialist heritage, bringing it closer to the Western imperialist states that are waging a war on the Muslim world including in Pakistan, a country which India is at odds with.
During his visit to India Prime Minister Stephen Harper made reference to Canada and India's shared concerns with terrorism. However many have noted that the Mumbai terrorist incidents of 2008 have all the hallmarks of a false-flag operation.
Many believe that the West is encouraging religious sectarianism in India which will make it easier for India to be re-colonized and used as a pawn in the West’s anti-Islam agenda.
