A group of pro-Khalistan activists attacked innocent British-Indian civilians outside the Indian Embassy in London on March 09. The Khalistani group was backed by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
The clash broke out between two rival demonstrator groups outside the Indian High Commission in London, during a demonstration called to protest against “atrocities on ethnic minorities in India” and counter-protests from groups including the Friends of India Society in the United Kingdom.
In the video, men wearing Sikh turbans can be seen raising slogans like ‘Naraa-e-Taqbeer’ and ‘Allah-u-Akbar’ and carried banners with anti-India slogans. The attackers also carried Khalistani Flags.

The attacks came as revenge to Indian air strike at a terror camp in Pakistan in February and anti-Pakistan protests that have been taking place across the world.
It is largely being seen as Pakistan’s counter to the widespread protests which have been taking place globally against the country’s role in the Pulwama terror attack which took place on February 14 in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. Over 40 CRPF personnel were martyred in the terror attack.
According to the Scotland Yard, one man was arrested for ‘breach of peace’. The man was later ‘de-arrested’ with no further action. No injuries were reported during the clash.
