A peace rally by Indian Americans in support of India was held at the “San Francisco Consulate.”
Indian Americans demonstrate at the “San Francisco Consulate” in favour of India.
In front of India’s consulate in San Francisco, which was damaged by separatist Sikhs earlier this week, a sizable contingent of members of the Indian-American community conducted a peace demonstration in support of India.
The Indian Embassy in San Francisco was stormed and destroyed on Sunday by a gang of pro-Khalistan demonstrators. The demonstrators demolished the temporary security barricades put up by the local police while shouting pro-Khalistan slogans, and they placed two “Khalistani flags” inside the Consulate’s grounds. Soon after, two embassy employees took down these banners.
Many Indian Americans travelled to San Francisco and nearby areas on Friday to wave the Indian Flag Tiranga in support of India.
There were a few separatist Sikhs present, and they denounced their harmful actions.
There were numerous local police officers on duty to stop any potentially dangerous incidents. A sizable group of Indian Americans were screaming “Vande Mataram” and waving the Indian flag Tiranga with the American flag, while the separatist Sikhs were yelling pro-Khalistan chants, trying to outnumber them.
Supporters of Khalistan have increased their anti-Indian activities recently in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, where they have damaged some Hindu temples.
The incidence of devastation at the Indian consulate general in San Francisco by certain pro-Khalistan individuals during a rally was brought up by India in a strong protest on Monday with the US Charge d’Affaires in Delhi.
According to the Ministry of External Affairs, the U.S. government has been requested to take immediate action to prevent such occurrences in the future. In the United States, there are roughly 4.2 million persons of Indian descent. The third largest Asian ethnic group in the U.S. is those of Indian descent.
