Washington, March 25

A large number of Indian-American community members held a peace rally in support of India in front of its consulate in San Francisco that was vandalised by separatist Sikhs early this week.

A group of pro-Khalistan protesters on Sunday attacked and damaged the Indian Consulate in San Francisco. Raising pro-Khalistan slogans, the protesters broke open the makeshift security barriers raised by the city police and installed two so-called Khalistani flags inside the Consulate premises. Two consulate personnel soon removed these flags.

Scores of Indian-Americans drove from in and around San Francisco and waved the Tricolour to show solidarity with India on Friday.

They condemned the destructive activities of separatists, who were also present there in small numbers.

Local police were present there in sizeable numbers to prevent any untoward incident. Some of the separatists chanted pro-Khalistan slogans, but they were outnumbered by a large gathering of Indian-Americans who chanted “Vande Mataram" and waved the Indian national flag along with that of the US.
