NRIs unite against Khalistani attacks, protest outside India House

London : In a show of solidarity, several groups of Indian expatriates in the UK called for a protest called ‘We are with the Indian High Commission’ outside India House in London on Tuesday. In the wake of the attack by Khalistani extremists on the premises of the Indian High Commission, the NRIs demonstrated in solidarity. Indian High Commissioner to the UK Vikram Doraiswamy hosted a meeting of the Indian diaspora at India House on Monday evening and tried to address the concerns of Indian community leaders following the attack.

Significantly, a group of protesters waving Khalistani flags and raising slogans in support of Khalistan tried to bring down the tricolor hoisted over the Indian High Commission in London on Sunday evening. Police arrested one person in connection with the violent disturbance following the incident. After this, an additional tricolor has been installed on the Indian High Commission building. After this meeting with the Indian diaspora, the Indian High Commission tweeted, ‘I appreciate their solidarity after the attack on the High Commission on Sunday.’

‘Failure of the British Government’

Britain’s Friends of India Society International (FISI) said after Tuesday’s meeting that the Indian diaspora was deeply shocked by the “disgusting act” of desecration of the Indian flag by extremist forces. “We are equally appalled at the failure of the UK government to take preventive measures to prevent such shameful incidents endangering Indian diplomatic officials,” FISI said.

Attack in America too

In this incident, an officer of the Indian High Commission bravely fought the goons and saved India’s pride by taking the flag from them. The Indian officer had to take this action due to lack of proper security in the premises. Meanwhile, a group of pro-Khalistan protesters attacked and damaged the Indian consulate in San Francisco on Sunday. Indian-Americans strongly condemned the incident and demanded immediate action against those responsible.
