Pakistan Protesters Attack Indian High Commission In London; Second Incident of Vandalism

The Indian High Commission in London was again attacked after a protest erupted over the Kashmir issue and quickly turned violent. This is the second incident of violent protest outside the Indian High Commission in London. Earlier, the protests erupted on the Indian Independence Day on August 15.

On Tuesday, protesters smashed windows of the Indian High Commission and even broke a window-pane of the building as they carried flags of the Pakistan-Controlled-Kashmir and raised “freedom” slogans.

The Indian High Commission tweeted, “Another violent protest outside the Indian High Commission in London today, 3 September 2019. Damage caused to the premises.” The Indian High Commission also shared a photo of the damaged window pane on Twitter.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned the violent protests, saying it was “unacceptable”. “I utterly condemn this unacceptable behaviour and have raised this incident with @metpoliceuk to take action,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted.
