BJP leader Shazia Ilmi, along with two other Indians, confronted a large group of Pakistani protesters close to the Indian Embassy in Seoul, South Korea, on Friday (16 August), reports The Indian Express.
The group of demonstrators had gathered there with Pakistani flags to protest against India’s abrogation of Article 370 which took away Jammu & Kashmir’s special status.
The protesters raised provocative anti-India slogans, calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India terrorists.
The small Indian group had to be led away by police considering the tense situation.
This incident follows a similar instance of a large group of pro-Pakistan and Khalistani protesters gathering by their thousands in London outside the Indian High Commission, surrounding small numbers of Indian families gathered there to celebrate Independence Day.
