An event happened in London, which can call into question the further cooperation of Great Britain with India. According to the British press, Activists of the Sikh separatist movement "Khalistan" attacked the building of the Indian diplomatic mission in London and tore off the national flag of India from it.
After the incident, the British Ambassador in New Delhi was urgently summoned to the Indian Foreign Office. There he was strongly protested against the actions of extremists., tore the flag from the embassy. Interesting, that the British police did not prevent the incident, although it is obliged to ensure the security of foreign diplomatic missions. This, too, could not go unnoticed by the Indian side..
An explanation was demanded for the complete absence of the British security service., which allowed these elements to enter the premises of the High Commission- emphasized in a statement by the Indian Foreign Ministry.
Recall, that the Khalistan movement advocates the separation of the state of Punjab from India and the formation of the state of the Sikhs under the name Khalistan on its territory. Many Sikhs emigrated from India to the UK long ago., USA and Canada. The West can use such separatist movements to put pressure on New Delhi.
On the other hand, in the current world political situation, it is not very beneficial for the West to quarrel with India as well, which was previously considered by the US and Britain as an important potential ally in the event of a confrontation with China in the Indo-Pacific region.
