Internet gives ‘Baghpat Fight’ twist to India-Canada row. See Other memes
The diplomatic spat between India and Canada over the killing of a Khalistani terrorist has been given an amusing twist by social media users. From ‘Baghpat fight’ to scenes from the movie ‘Golmaal‘, users have posted several memes about the current situation. The dispute escalated after the Justin Trudeau government in Canada accused India of killing Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in June. India dismissed the charges as “absurd” and “motivated” and expelled a Canadian diplomat in a tit-for-tat move to Ottawa’s expulsion of an Indian official.
That diplomatic tension between the two countries has been trending on social media for the past few days. Some users on X (formerly Twitter) have shared funny videos about the problem.
One of them is a clip of the fight between chaat sellers in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat. It has been shared with the caption “India and Canada diplomats in next G20 summit.”

Here are some of the other memes gaining traction on social media:

India has issued guidance to all its citizens living in Canada. It also warned those considering traveling there to exercise “extreme caution” in light of growing anti-Native American activities and “politically condoned” hate crimes in the North American country.
Canada’s Immigration Minister Marc Miller on Wednesday sought to reassure Indian citizens that it is safe to travel to the country. However, a Khalistani terrorist has announced plans for rallies in Canadian cities.
In the meantime gangster Sukhdool Singh, also known as Sukha Duneke, was killed in Canada by unknown gunmen. Sukhdool Singh was on a wanted list in India and was nominated as number 33 on the anti-terror agency NIA’s most wanted list.
India has also suspended the issuance of visas to citizens of Canada “until further notice”. The private agency hired to initially screen Canadian citizens’ visa applications said this was done “due to operational reasons”.
