Canada issues travel advisory warning for India
The government of Canada has issued a travel advisory warning for India due to the potential threat of terrorist attacks.
Travellers are advised to avoid travelling to the western border with Bangladesh—including the areas Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Nagaland bordering Bangladesh and Myanmar; Jammu and Kashmir; and border areas with Pakistan—including the areas Gujarat, Punjab, and Rajasthan for any reason due to the threat of violence due to on-going conflict.
Additionally, travellers are strongly advised to avoid any non-essential travel to Northeastern India, including the areas Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland.
Conflict in the Jammu and Kashmir region goes back to the 1940’s. However, recently, tensions have boiled over largely due to a new law passed by India for the region that some critics have claimed is anti-Muslim, which drew the ire of Pakistan, a predominantly Muslim country that borders India—specifically the Jammu and Kashmir region.
