Pro-Khalistani protesters attack Indian Consulate in U.S.

Indian embassies and establishments have increasingly come under attack in recent times by Khalistan sympathisers across several countries including the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia.
In a row after the London High Commission was attacked by Khalistanis and the Indian flag vandalised, a pro-Khalistan mob attacked the Indian embassy in San Francisco after Indian officials allegedly removed Khalistani flags from the consulate building.
A group of pro-Khalistani protesters on March 20 attacked and damaged the Indian Consulate in San Francisco, prompting sharp condemnation from Indian Americans who demanded immediate action against those responsible for it.
“We are also appalled by the complete law and order failure in both in London as well as in SFO where a few radicalised separatists attacked India’s diplomatic missions,” Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies (FIIDS) said after pro-Khalistani protesters attacked the Indian Consulate in San Francisco.
The attack on Indian consulates on foreign soil comes after a crackdown on ‘Waris Punjab De’ chief and prime Khalistan leader in India, Amirtpal Singh, who has run underground.
A video doing round on social media shows Khalistani miscreants attacking the Indian consulate in San Francisco after officials of the embassy removed yellow Khalistani flags from consulate building. The clip shows miscreants vandalising the consulate building and defacing walls. They even painted message that reads: “#Free Amrit Pal”.
Meanwhile, India expressed its displeasure with the incident and the senior-most UK diplomat was summoned in New Delhi to convey strong protest at the actions taken by the extremist elements against the Indian High Commission in London on Sunday.
Last week, Australia had shut down an Indian consulate due to the threat posed by Khalistani radicals. The consulate, located near Swann Road in Brisbane’s Taringa suburb, had to shut down because Khalistani extremists blocked the entrance.
