India’s epic tricolor response to Khalistani supporters in London
NEW DELHI: A huge tricolor now adorns the Indian High Commission building in London, shortly after Khalistani supporters hoisted the national flag outside the building to protest the crackdown on Amritpal Singh.
A photo of a huge national flag stretched across India House in Aldwich, London has gone viral, with social media users praising the move.
BJP National Spokesperson Jayveer Shergill, who shared the photo on Twitter, said, “Janda Oonja Rahe Hamara” – The UK government should take action against the culprits who tried to desecrate the Indian flag at the London High Commission. Serving/protecting the nation
Footage of a Khalistani supporter pulling down the national flag angered the nation and sparked strong reactions on social media. Many appreciated the brave act of the High Commission official who threw down the Khalistan flag.
British Deputy Ambassador Christina Scott was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs on Sunday evening after videos of the Indian flag being pulled down started circulating online.
The ministry sought an explanation for the “lack of security” at the High Commission premises and said the UK government’s “indifference” towards Indian diplomats and staff was “unacceptable”.
