Previously, on 15 August, a large number of people comprising predominantly of British Pakistanis, Khalistanis backed by ISI gathered outside the Indian mission in London, where the Indian diaspora was celebrating the seventy third Independence Day of India.
The Pakistan-sponsored protesters threw stones and other objects on the Indian mission as well as the diaspora and also damaged the Indian tricolour. They were captured on camera harassing the Indian people gathered there to celebrate Indian Independence Day.
Prime Minister Modi took up the matter with British PM Boris Johnson in a telephonic conversation on 20 August and the latter had assured that his administration will be taking up all necessary steps to ensure the safety of the mission, its personnel and visitors.
The mayor of London, Pakistani-origin British citizen Sadiq Khan was criticised for his failure to curb the violent protests.
This time, Khan replied to the tweet shared by Indian High Commission saying, “I utterly condemn this unacceptable behaviour and have raised this incident with Metropolitan Police UK to take action.”
