India Blasts UK as National Flag Pulled Down in London

Updated on

India lodged a formal protest with the British High Commission in New Delhi after a Sikh separatist sympathizer pulled down the national flag outside its embassy in London on Sunday.

Local media in India tweeted video footage that showed the man pulling down the Indian tricolor. He then briefly waved the orange flag of the so-called Khalistan movement, which fought for a creation of an independent state for followers of the Sikh faith in Punjab in the 1980s and early 1990s.
