As we know that Google does not harm if you put original article with canonical tag but if you pass the links from the canonical version article so will Google consider those links as Backlinks?

Do let me know.

From Google
Consolidating link signals for the duplicate or similar content. It helps search engines to be able to consolidate the information they have for the individual URLs (such as links to them) on a single, preferred URL. This means that links from other sites to http://example.com/dresses/cocktail?gclid=ABCD get consolidated with links to https://www.example.com/dresses/green/greendress.html.

Why not fix your site so canonical tags are not required at all?

If not your content, well... take your chances about canonical.

That cake and eat it too kind of thing.

Unless I missed something,...
