Canada's High Commission to India cancelled the dinner invite to Atwal for the dinner reception scheduled to be held in New Delhi today. Trudeau told reporters on Thursday that a Canadian parliamentarian on the trip had taken responsibility for the mistake.

"I'm left speechless. This speaks volumes about the kind of inroads Khalistanis have made into the Liberal Party of Canada and the echelons of power", said Dosanjh. "I alone facilitated his request to attend this important event", Sarai said.

Atwal had then been a part of the "International Sikh Youth Federation" which is designated as a terrorist group by India, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the US. He was on a list of banned Sikh extremists for years until recently, one official said. He added that Mr Trudeau had assured him that Canada "does not support" separatist movements anywhere in the world.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family visited the famous Jama Masjid (mosque) in Delhi.

It is unclear how Atwal, a known militant, managed to obtain a visa to enter into India, or why he was seen traveling with the Trudeau entourage.

They also took notice of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's failure to formally greet Trudeau or even acknowledge his presence in the country as the visit began.

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, arrived in India earlier this week and in an unsurprising twist, suddenly everyone's interested in politics.

"Both Canada and India are committed to upholding and promoting democracy, and we value diversity and the many strengths it brings to society", he said.
