On Wednesday, thousands of angry supporters of outgoing US President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol and clashed with the police, which resulted in the death of at least four people including a woman. As photos and videos of the unprecedented violence went viral, what grabbed the attention of Twitterati was the presence of the Indian flag in the crowd of Trump supporters who were waiving American flags and raising questions on Presidential Elections.
Notably, the Indian tricolour was apparently the only foreign flag being waved at the protest site. As of now, it is not clear who the flag bearer is and what are his/her political affiliations
Taking to Twitter, BJP Member of Parliament Varun Gandhi slammed the act, saying it’s a “fight, we definitely don’t need to participate in”.
