Indian National Flag burnt at Khalistan Rally in London

Two Indian flags were set ablaze and then stamped on during a "remembrance March and freedom rally" in Khalistani rally, London on Sunday to mark the anniversary of Operation Blue Star. The Indian high commission said it was "extremely concerned and distressed" by what happened and vowed it would take action against those who desecrated the Tricolour. Slogans of “Khalistan Zindabad” were also raised by the khalistani supporters. A spokesman for Metropolitan Police said he wasn't "specifically aware of any flag being burnt" and that nobody had been arrested. The officer pointed out that setting flags alight was, in any case, not a criminal offence in Britain. Large banners celebrated Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the central figure of the armed Khalistan movement that had led to the June 1984 Army operation at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. "It is important the next generation knows about this," said a Sikh woman selling sweaters. Jay Singh, Khalistan supporter told TOI, "Burning a flag is a minor thing compared to the people who have died at the farmers’ protests...We all have family and land back in India and they don’t have equal rights. Everyone here has family who has been picked up or gone missing in Punjab. We just want equal rights. Burning the flag is people’s emotions coming out against the establishment." It is to be noted that on 37th anniversary of Operation Blue Star, the Indian military action carried out to remove Khalistani separatist leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who was hiding inside the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar, his pictures have been spotted inside the temple complex. Akal Takht head and SGPC justifies Pro-Khalistan slogans The sloganeering of “Khalistan Zindabad is also defended by Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh and Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee Chief. The five-day event which began with putting the bullet-hit Bir of Guru Granth Sahib on display ended with chants like ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ by a section of Sikh hardliners. “This is a deep wound on Sikhs, which gives pain throughout the year. On its anniversary, we reduce this pain by uttering ‘Khalistan Zindabad’. It can never be forgotten. It will be part of our memory forever,” said Jathedar on the anniversary of Operation Bluestar.

Communists and Congress - Two sinking ships

The downward slippery journey of Indian communists and Congress is a reality, and this decline is not only electoral but also in influencing the sociopolitical mindset. New Delhi: It was a usual diplomatic episode when India had sought quicker extradition of Kim Peter Davis, alias Niels Holck, from Denmark. This was flagged off when Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was in India and was holding bilateral talks with her Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi. She also hailed ...
