UK Government Apologizes Over Indian Flag Destruction Incident at Parliament Square

In an official statement, the Ministry said that India had expressed outrage over the incident at the highest level of the British government.

When asked about recent incident of cross border firing on Pak-Afghan border, Dr Muhammad Faisal said both the sides were continuing negotiations to address their misunderstandings.

Holding placards reading "Modi go home" and "We stand against Modi's agenda of hate and greed", they gathered outside Downing Street and Parliament on Wednesday as Mr Modi arrived for talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

In a sharp attack on Pakistan during his speech in London, PM Modi asserted that he would not tolerate those who "run an industry of exporting terror and kill innocent Indians". The incident took place as the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting got under way. "The Indian flag has now been replaced", a senior Indian official associated with the prime minister's visit said.

Indian media that was initially ignoring the news reports about protests against the Indian PM, has highlighted the incident of ripping off the flag.

The web portal also reported that the United Kingdom officials have arranged for a replacement flag to be put up at the Parliament Square.

A number of groups, including Kashmiri and Sikh diaspora groups, Anti-Caste activists groups, Women's Rights Groups and Groups of Minorities in India staged protest against India to protest against "repression of minorities and atrocities against Dalits, downtrodden and women in India". "Enquiries continue", a Metropolitan Police statement said.

"A message must be sent to all those out there that we journalists make people aware of what is going on in the world". The groups involved were seen with "Free Jaggi" posters and T-shirts, calling for the release of Jagtar Singh Johal who is lodged in a Punjab jail over his alleged involvement in the targeted killings in the state.
