British officials apologise for despicable protest where Khalistanis and Pakistanis burnt Indian flag

According to reports, a repugnant incident took place on April 18, where a group of Pakistan backed pro-Khalistani and Kashmiri protestors, in the presence of London Metropolitan Police, pulled down the tricolour from a pole at London’s Parliament Square and replaced it with a flag representing Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) and Khalistan.

The incident took place when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was addressing the Indian community at Westminster Central Hall. Earlier, the British foreign office had apologised for the incident. “While people have the right to hold peaceful protests, we are disappointed with the action taken by a small minority in Parliament Square and contacted High Commissioner Yashvardhan Kumar Sinha as soon as we were made aware,” according to Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s statement.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday expressed annoyance over India’s national flag-burning incident at London’s Parliament Square and said, “We’re deeply anguished with the incident involving our national flag. The matter was taken up strongly with the United Kingdom side. They have regretted the incident. The flag was immediately replaced. We expect legal action against the people who were involved in this,” said MEA’s official spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.

On a related note, addressing the Indian community at ‘Bharat ki Baat, Sabke Saath’ event at Westminster, Prime Minister Modi described Pakistan as a “terror export factory”. He said, “We believe in peace, but we will not tolerate those who like to export terror. We will give strong answers and in the language they understand. Terrorism will never be accepted”.

The foreign office also mentioned that Prime Minister Modi’s visit “has strengthened our relationship with India and we look forward to working even more closely together on a number of important areas.”

The protests that the British officials have apologised for, was hailed by the self-proclaimed “seculars”.

Prakash Raj who regularly peddles lies had supported the protests, though with old images.

Sanjay, National spokesperson of the Congress party had also fanned these protests held by Khalistanis and Pakistanis.

Opindia had earlier reported on how Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), was shielding miscreant for allegedly trying to publicise pro-Khalistan campaign. Gradually the world is realising that the militant Khalistanis are not just dissenters against the Indian states but terrorists fuelled evidently by cross-border funds.
