Indian descent man appeals against deportation

Oct 16 2013, 8:30am CDT | by IANS

Toronto, Oct 16 (IANS) A Canada-born man of Indian descent, who has served time in jail, has claimed that the Canadian government has trampled on his constitutional rights by trying to render him stateless and force him out of the country.

Toronto, Oct 16 — A Canada-born man of Indian descent, who has served time in jail, has claimed that the Canadian government has trampled on his constitutional rights by trying to render him stateless and force him out of the country.

Deepan Budlakoti, 23, appealed before a federal judge to rule that he is "a Canadian citizen" and stop the efforts of federal ministers to render him "stateless, contrary to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms", the Globe And Mail reported Wednesday.

"It's insane that the (Stephen) Harper government is taking this position against a Canadian-born man who has lived his entire life here," said Yavar Hameed, the lawyer for Budlakoti.

The government must respond to the suit by next week, according to the report.

Budlakoti holds a birth certificate issued by the Canadian province of Ontario but his passport has been revoked by Canadian authorities who want to deport him to India, a country he has never been to.

Ottawa contends that when Budlakoti was born in October 1989, his parents had come to work as household support staff at the Indian high commission in Ottawa and thus their child was covered by diplomatic immunity and not entitled to Canadian citizenship.

Both of Deepan's parents were granted Canadian citizenship after they applied for it but Deepan's name was omitted from the application because they were allegedly told by Canadian officials that he was already Canadian.

According to the report, the then Indian high commissioner, in a letter made public last month, has confirmed that at the time of Deepan's birth, the Budlakotis were no longer working for him.

India, however, told Canada that Deepan is not an Indian citizen and it will not issue him a passport or allow his entry into the country.

4 jihad attacks in 4 days

Oct 26 2014 3:21pm CDT | Source: WND

Four terror attacks in as many days: two in Canada one after the other, an ax attack in New York City and vehicular jihad in Jerusalem – and the jihadists are just getting warmed up. Of course, in all of these jihad news stories, getting the facts from the enemedia is difficult, and at times impossible. They self-enforce the Shariah.

Ottawa Attack Is Canada's Fault Says Leading Muslim Journalist

Oct 23 2014 7:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

Afghan-Canadian journalist Nelofer Pazira has told the Independent that yesterday's attack in Ottawa happened because the country's Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper “pushed Canada into joining the US-led war in the Middle East”. She claimed that the country had “become divided” when the government put a group of Muslims on a watch list, and suggested the running over of a soldier earlier this week was in retaliation.

Most people probably reacted in shock to learn that Canada has now been hit twice by terror attacks against soldiers in three days. Many Americans probably think of it as our sleepy socialist neighbor to the north. But Canada is a key ally in the war against terrorism in general, and ISIS in particular. And today's attack is a harbinger of things to come in America. The notion of a war again ...
