Pakistan-sponsored protesters attack Indians celebrating Independence Day in London – With Video

London, Aug 16, 2019-

Indians and people of Indian origin gathered outside the Indian High Commission in London to celebrate the 73rd Independence Day of India were abused, and pelted with eggs and water bottles by Pakistan-sponsored protesters, who included separatist Sikhs.

Vijay Chauthaiwale, BJP’s In-Charge, Foreign Affairs Department, termed the happenings outside the Indian High Commission “quite deplorable”. He said that stones were thrown at the Indian mission, and the Indian tricolour was damaged. The police were outnumbered by the protesters.

As the Indians held aloft the Indian flag and shouted “Modi, Modi”, the Pakistanis shouted slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Pakistanis were protesting against the revocation of special status for Kashmir.

Chauthaiwale tweeted: “What happened today in front of the INDIAN High Commission in London is quite deplorable. @BBCWorld will never report it,” he said, referring to BBC’s reportage of the alleged massive protests in Kashmir Valley last Friday.

“Women and children who came to celebrate Independence Day were abused, eggs and water bottle thrown on them by Paki goons,” he said.

“People of Indian origin were surrounded by large number of protesters, threatening physical attacks. Stones were thrown at HC building, Indian flag was damaged. Police were outnumbered.

“Thanks to l staff of @HCI_London and HC, everyone was brought inside the building, they were offered food and water and were safely sent back to their homes. It’s time for @SadiqKhan (London Mayor) @metpoliceuk to take appropriate action against these goons. Hope @UKinIndia too take a note,” he posted.

An Indian who was present at the venue, wrote on twitter: “Indians happily celebrating their #IndependenceDayIndia outside the @HCI_London being surrounded by aggressive mobs of Pakistani and Khalistanis. Women and children are being hurt!”, and tagged Prime Minister @BorisJohnson

A twitter handle called Kashmir Pandits News, too tweeted: “Live situation outside High Commison of India London. Violent Pakistanis trying to attack Indians who gathered for Independence Day celebration. #PakistanTerrorState.”

According to reports, the police have made a few arrests in the case.
