Last Sunday, a group of pro-Khalistan protesters attacked and vandalized the Indian consulate in San Francisco. They had placed two so-called Khalistani flags in the consulate building. However, those flags were soon removed by personnel. A large number of Indian Americans arrived in San Francisco to protest the incident and waved the tricolor to show solidarity with India.

Embassy of criticism
The incident of an attack on an Indian journalist by Khalistanis has been criticized by the Indian Embassy in Washington. The embassy issued a statement saying that we condemn the serious attack on the senior journalist. Such activities underline the violent and anti-social behavior of alleged Khalistani protesters and their supporters, who engage in frequent incidents of violence and vandalism.
The statement said that we have seen images of the attack on the Indian journalist. When he went to Washington to cover the Khalistani protesters, he was first verbally abused and then physically injured. When he was worried about his safety, he took the help of law enforcement agencies and the agencies responded immediately.
