Earlier, Doraiswami was allegedly prevented from entering a gurdwara in Scotland. 

The incident comes at a time when  a diplomatic row has erupted between India and Canada over the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The row between India and Canada Ottawa erupted after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on September 18 alleged the "potential" involvement of Indian agents in Nijjar's killing in June.

India strongly rejected the allegations as "absurd" and "motivated" and expelled a senior Canadian diplomat in a tit-for-tat move to Ottawa's expulsion of an Indian official over the case.

Reportedly, Doraiswami was stopped by a group of radical British Sikh activists, who told him he was "not welcome".

PTI had reported that pro-Khalistan elements based in Canada have been luring gullible Sikh youth to the North American country by sponsoring their visas with the sole objective of using them to carry out their agenda on Canadian soil.
