Attacking the Indian Consulate as a form of sabotage
On Sunday, a group of pro-Khalistan protesters in San Francisco broke into the Indian consulate and caused damage. Pro-Khalistan protesters broke through temporary security barriers set up by the city police and put up two “Khalistani flags” inside the consulate building while shouting pro-Khalistan slogans. But two people from the office quickly took them down.
Separatist Sikhs were found guilty
Friday, hundreds of Indian-Americans drove around San Francisco flying the Indian flag as a sign of support for India. During that time, there were also a small number of separatist Sikhs, whose damaging actions were also criticized by Indian-Americans.
Indian-Americans made Vande Bharat signs.
During this peace gathering, there were also a lot of local police officers there to make sure nothing bad happened. Some separatist Sikhs there shouted chants in favour of Khalistan, but they were far less numerous than the Indian-Americans. The Indian-Americans cheered for India by chanting “Vande Mataram” and waving the Indian flag.
Many countries are doing more things that are against India.
Supporters of Khalistan in Canada, Australia, and the UK have been doing more things against India in the past few months. Some Hindu temples in these countries have been damaged by people who back the Khalistani movement. On Monday, India sent a strong warning to the US Charge d’affaires in Delhi about the damage done to the Indian Consulate General in San Francisco by pro-Khalistan protesters.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in New Delhi said that the US government has been asked to take steps to stop these kinds of things from happening again.
