Well-known British media personality Katie Hopkins was heckled by a Pakistani mob staging an anti-India protest in London on the day of Diwali. The UK-based Tehreek-e-Kashmir among other Pakistani groups was holding a protest on Kashmir to coincide with the festival of Diwali.
Hopkins, who was upset at the protest being held on Diwali was heckled and booed by the crowd. There was also a counter protest by a large group of Kashmiris from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) in front of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan's High Commission.
Katie Hopkins was shouted down for showing her support for the peaceful Indian diaspora and Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi. Showing a video of the heckling mob, she tweeted, "This is the Pakistani mob bussed into London to disrespect the religious festival of #Diwali2019. Mostly men. Mostly calling me a 'slut' or 'whore'. My thanks to @metpoliceuk for their generous assistance."
"This was the treatment I faced", she wrote, posting a video of the shouting mob, as she was encircled by the police and taken out. In another tweet, she opined, "It is deeply shaming that Britain has allowed Muslims to protest on the religious festival of #Diwali2019. I am so sorry. Decent Brits stand with Modi and our peaceful Indian diaspora."
She said that "busloads of Pakistani Muslims were brought to protest against Diwali, a peaceful religious festival of lights".
"The Islamification of the UK has to be called out," she said.
